Meet the Annie Sloaner of the year 2016

We were blown away by all the creative projects that readers submitted for our Annie Sloaner of the Year competition – and so was Annie! In fact, she was so impressed that she not only chose a winner, but also selected two other entries for a special mention.

Here they are!

Annie Sloan: “Painting a kitchen is a tremendous undertaking. What Maryna has done by combining these colours has made an old-fashioned kitchen truly come alive. I love the Duckegg Blue of the pelmet.”
