I adore Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan and one of my favorites is Abusson Blue!
I love the color itself & how wonderful it accents against almost every other color in the pallet
Here's a page from our Annie Sloan color mixing workbook. We've mixed Aubusson Blue 50/50 with each of the other colors.
Annie Sloan's Aubusson Blue was inspired by her early experiences painting in London. From Annie's Blog 'When I first started decorating in the late 1970s, I used to work in the some pretty wonderful places in London and in country houses. I'd often heard reference to 'taking care of the Aubusson carpet' so I investigated and discovered these fabulous beauties and the incredible blue. All these colours were natural probably indigo dyes so the colour varies with intensity.'
Here's a petite antique cabinet painted Chalk Paint® Aubusson Blue. It looks wonderful with the pop of orange.
This end-table was just painted in Aubusson Blue, pre-waxed.
And now waxed with 2 coats of dark wax.
This is a larger dresser that had already had the top stripped. We then painted the body of the dresser in Chalk Paint® Aubusson Blue, and applied 3 coats of clear wax to the top.
This table top was painted Aubusson Blue, legs in French Linen
Hope you're inspired.
