Rodmell is one of three exclusive colours Annie has created as a part of the Annie Sloan with Charleston collaboration. Rodmell is a dusty, damson purple, influenced by the painterly washes of twilight shades on the Studio walls, the creative hub of the farmhouse for over 50 years.
Annie discovered the Bloomsbury group of artists and their country retreat, Charleston farmhouse, whilst she was studying Fine Art. When the opportunity arose to collaborate with the Charleston Trust to create a unique range of Chalk Paint® colours, it was a dream come true for Annie.
The Bloomsbury group included some of the twentieth century’s most pioneering artists, writers and thinkers – people who believed in debate, creativity, beauty, innovation and truth and whose work was guided by a sense of fun, freedom and irreverence. Annie has channelled this inspiration into each of the colours and products she has designed for this collaboration.
