36. Lake Trasimeno chalk paint
“Numbers 36 to 41 are ‘the soothing colours’. They are variations on what the English call duck egg, a combination of blue, green and grey. They have distinct differences, but all of them will have a soothing, calming effect. Numbers 36, 37 and 38 are very suited to put in a children’s hospital or day-care. Number 36 is the lightest version of blue-green. It’s based on the colour of Lake Trasimeno, which is only 20 minutes from my home in Tuscany. This lake often has a silver green shimmer to it on a sunny day. It’s a wonderful colour to use behind a bed. Together with our linen fabrics in matching soothing colours it will be a place to truly relax.”
The ‘Arte di Vita’ Chalk Paint range has been created by an interior designer, who is also an artist with expert knowledge of colours. The paint is suitable for furniture and walls and has a matte, velvety effect and excellent coverage.
