Vintage paint inspiration in India

I hope you are enjoying my Indian photos & that it will inspire you to visit the country.

I am a great Annie Sloan  chalk paint fan & have painted several pieces of furniture at home in the faded vintage style & am always on the look out for inspiration.

I had not expected to find it in India … the faded colours so reminiscent of chalk paint use just made me want to reach for a paint brush & some Annie Sloan paints. I am a great fan of mouldings & details & the carved wood work in India just gladdened my heart - why go plain when you can really do something quite lovely & unique …





How dramatic is this combination?


Earthy brown perfectly teamed with blue & green


Gorgeous paint work on this entrance …


Perfect colours, the image having just the right shade of blue / green to lift the scene …


Blue paintwork with an earthy brown just look homely & inviting …


Rich cream with a faded red & green which highlights the mouldings - a really lovely entrance


 Painted details enhance this entrance …


Lovely colours seen at a temple courtyard


Carved details / mouldings make this door eye catching ….


The lovely Judges Court in Pragpur with its traditional colours & details which look just right in a 300 year old building.



The use of these traditional colours add a timeless quality to the Judges Court while highlighting the lovely architectural details …


The faded charm of these worn colours make it all seem homely & timeless …

Faded details that give a timeless quality to the building …


 Popular colour choices again of cream, white & red give this building in Shimla a timeless quality


This train like building in Shimla once again uses the traditional colours & methods to enhance the features … it certainly adds interest to the building ….


Lovely colour contrasts in Shimla …


The Gaiety Theatre in Shimla has not shied away from colour - deep blue,  green & gold just make the theatre shimmer - a really beautiful space.
