While there is much debate about King Louis of France ever having been crowned in England, we love this colour and it is one of the most popular in the Annie Sloan pallet of Chalk Paint™  decorative paints.

Whether put to use to achieve that fresh and breezy look in any area of your home or to enhance the decor in your little boy's room, this lovely pastel blue is always a hit.

Annie Sloan describes this colour as "a pretty pastel blue that works particularly well when waxed with a dark brown."

Here is a little 'Louis Blue' inspiration to spark your creativity:

Louis Blue on a delicately shaped French side table with a little dark wax in places and rubbed back a little to reveal the wood underneath.
Add 3 parts of Old White to 1 part of Louis Blue to make a graceful grey blue that makes me think of the beautiful and refined favourite of Louis XV so Annie Sloan called it POMPADOUR
Add 8 parts of Old White to 1 part of Louis Blue makes a very soft grey Swedish blue that Annie Sloan has called SOPHIA after King Gustav's daughter.
