Nooky Gossip 60! Autentico Autumn Inspo! NEW Dixie Belle Fall Release! Clean As A Whistle Brush Cleaner! Posh Chalk Stencils! Posh Chalk Decoupage Papers!
Have you noticed a change in the air recently? It's definitely feeling cooler - autumn is already on its way! And one of the best things about autumn is getting warm and cosy - and that doesn’t just have to be limited to your clothing! You can bring an autumnal feel to your home through your decor and design.
Take a look at nature to be inspired by autumn colours - you’ll see deep, warm hues in the changing leaves and foliage. We've been looking at some gorgeous, warming colours in our Autentico instore range - like Plum, Ruby, Grand Cru, Brazilian Bird, Narang, and Wilderness.
Autentico Versante paint is environmentally-friendly, water-based, great for exterior and interior use and is brilliant for most surfaces including walls, woodwork, furniture, and primed metals such as radiators and pipework - meaning it's very versatile and recommended by Shabby Nook! Look at our instore range here.
LIMITED EDITION RELEASE!
Dixie Belle have released a limited edition of 5 Fall Chalk Mineral Paint colours, and they are all BEAUTIFUL. The colours are Juniper, Pumpkin Spice, Cashmere, Latte and Merlot which are perfect for Autumn! Order while stocks last!
Clean as Whistle Brush Soap from the Belles and Whistles range is now stock! This brush soap is not only fab at removing build up and dried-on paint, it is also environmentally friendly, non-toxic, biodegradable, and non-flammable.
We’ve had an amazing response so far to the new Deluxe Decoupage Papers from Posh Chalk! There are 37 designs available in 2 sizes. Long Walk is one design that would fit an autumnal theme – look at all the different colours in the leaves!
There are also botanical themed stencil designs in the new Posh Chalk Quality Stencil range, like this lush Tropical Leaf design. There are so many different designs and sizes in this range you are bound to find a style that suits you!
In the spotlight this week we have an autumnal beauty created by Connie Clarke from Faff Designs and shared in the Facebook group back in March! How gorgeous is that orange?!
Connie transformed this apothecary chest with layers of Dixie Belle Chalk Paints in Florida Orange, Antebellum Blue, Coffee Bean and Daisy. She finished off the aged look by applying Best Dang Wax in Clear and Black. The layers Connie used created the perfect grungy orange hue for this piece and her attention to detail in the distressed finish brings it altogether. Thanks for sharing with us Connie, such a great way to bring a bright and warm colour to your décor!
