Style: Modern Retro

Posted Under - Inspiration // Projects

IMG_0015One design style that is making its presence felt is Modern Retro. We love the bold, colorful palette and the futuristic inspired patterns.

The style is featured in Annie Sloan’s most recent book, Room Recipes for Style and Color, where Annie and her son Felix break down the elements of the modern retro style.

Drawing inspiration from funky modern retro patterns, studio assistant Molly Skivington, created these fun nesting hexagons. Molly found the raw wood decorations at a local craft store, and created this look using Annie Sloan Decoupage Glue and Varnish, Chalk Paint®, and printed patterns that were found on Pinterest.


For more style inspiration be sure to check out Room Recipes for Style and Color, available at your local stockist.

Repost: Agnieszka Krawczyk’s Boho Cupboard

Cupboard We are in love with Annie Sloan Painter In Residence, Agnieszka Krawczyk’s most recent project. To create the finish on this boho cupboard, Agnieszka started with two coats of Chalk Paint® in Florence on the outside and Graphite on the inside. She distressed each layer using a variety of different techniques and finished the piece with Annie Sloan Soft Wax in Clear and Dark.
To read more about how Agnieszka created this look, head over to Annie’s blog, Annie Sloan Paint and Colour.
