In her latest book, Colour Recipes for Painted Furniture and More (2013 Cico Books), British artist and paint expert Annie Sloan takes us inside her idyllic country farmhouse in northern France. In the process of redecorating, she experimented with new techniques, using her Chalk Paint™ to restore locally sourced antique furniture in French rustic style. Sloan also incorporated bohemian, Swedish and modern influences in the house to add a contemporary element. Peruse this gallery for her expert advice on refinishing old treasures and bringing French country charm into your own home.
