Black and white vibes this Friday.


Decorating With Navy Furniture.

Navy blue furniture is having a moment.

I recently painted a few pieces using Autentico’s Sailors Blue and needless to say they didn’t hang around for long.

Here are said pieces:

Navy furniture isn’t just for preppy or nautical themed rooms, it lends a sophisticated edge to a room and is compatible with so many colours ranging from salmon to chartreuse.

I am a huge fan of this colour and wouldn’t hesitate to use it in any room.

Here are some more decorating ideas:

Latest Painting Project – Elephant Grey & Gold Painted Sideboard.

A beautiful bow fronted sideboard on elegantly tapered legs with some of the most gorgeous handles I’ve seen in a while.

The handles in question are fabulous round drop brass handles that have cleaned up a dream.

Hand painted using Elephant Grey chalk paint and then gold gilding wax to highlight very subtly the edges of the cupboards, drawer and legs.

Waxed and lightly distressed finish.

Complimented with a new plum key tassel.

Currently for sale – £375.00

Classic perfection.


Latest Painting Project – More Navy.

I did say this gorgeous Navy paint was my current favourite colour.

Here we have another lovely chest of drawers painted using the fabulous Sailors Blue by Autentico.

The oval brass handles on this piece are stunning and look even more gorgeous against the blue.

Carved cabriole legs.

Waxed and lightly distressed finish.

Latest Painting Project – Bedroom Chair.

I particularly love the bluebell carvings on the back of this vintage bedroom elbow chair and I wanted to choose a fabric that was in keeping with this detail.

I chose Zoffany’s beautiful Rosetta linen fabric and painted the frame using a combination of pale grey and beige chalk paints.

The frame was then waxed and given a distressed finish.

A sweet chair that is perfect for a bedroom, hallway or sitting room.
