Annie Sloan • Paint & Colour
I am profoundly excited, delighted and proud to announce that I have ventured into the world of Magazines! My latest project, The Colourist Bookazine, is now available to buy from your local Stockist, but please check with your local Stockist for availability in your area. The Colourist is a magazine dedicated to my passion for colour. I love all aspects of colour – everything from quiet and subtle whites and neutrals, to brilliant shout-outs of bold and bright. For the past three decades I have been sharing my love for decorative painting and inspiring people to be creative and adventurous with my own brand of decorative paint, Chalk Paint®, brushes, stencils fabrics and more.
The Colourist will be available through my network of independent Stockists from August. Every issue of The Colourist will feature 132 pages of homes that inspire me, people I admire, beautiful things I love, places I’ve visited, my historical influences and the stories behind some of my wonderfully talented friends around the world. Each issue will also feature a section of Chalk Paint® projects with easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions. In the first issue you can read all about my exciting collaboration with Charleston, the home of the Bloomsbury Group. As well as designer Lucy Tiffney’s home, you can look round stylist Tamsyn Morgans’ dreamy pastel home, explore bold botanical trends and be inspired by two incredible kitchen makeovers.
Come with me around the world to meet artists and designers who use colour, pattern and paint in their own special way. For each issue I choose a colour palette from the Chalk Paint® range to set the mood. The first issue I’ve chosen some of my favourite colour combinations; Antibes Green, Scandinavian Pink and Antoinette.
Columbia SC’s Main Street: 5 keys to downtown revitalization
Something has happened to make Main Street this lively, exciting, people-filled downtown district it has become. Here are five keys to Main Street’s striking revitalization over the past few years. When this more modern take on an old-timey general store opened in 2011, Mast General became the reason to go to Main Street for many people who had long ago lost touch with, or never connected with, downtown Columbia. In the six years since Mast opened, more than 50 businesses followed it to the Main Street district, although some since have closed. Perhaps you come to shop and stay to eat, or you make a full day of your trip to Main Street by catching a flick at the Nickelodeon Theatre next door.
The art museum put a stake on Main Street in the old Macy’s department store in 1998, in the early dawn of a new era on Main. Around the holidays, the market crowd blends with skaters at Main Street Ice, the rink on Boyd Plaza in front of the Columbia Museumn of Art. Soda City puts a good face on Main Street, said the Nick’s Gadsden. A steady stream of popular restaurants have filled in nearly every block of Main and its intersecting streets, the bulk of them opening since the arrival of Mast and the Nick. Drake’s Duck-In, a decades-old Main Street mainstay famous for its fried chicken, recently extended its Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening hours.
People like The Whig’s Blair and the Nick’s Gadsden say Main Street hasn’t turned into a student district, so to speak. In many ways it’s not: Places such as the Main Street Publick House, Bourbon restaurant and bar, Lula Drake wine bar and others, for example, overtly cater to a more mature crowd.
