ANNIE SLOAN RHS DECOUPAGE PAPERS - Formal Rome
Annie Sloan and The Royal Horticultural Society have teamed up to bring you the most beautiful decoupage papers, using historical designs from the RHS’s vast archive of botanical drawings from their world famous Lindley Collections. These decoupage papers can be used alongside Chalk Paint or on furniture alone to transform pieces into works of art.
Formal Rome shows an Italian rather than an English garden plan. This elegant oval pattern from the Annie Sloan with the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Decoupage Paper uses an engraved plan for a parterre, from Giovanni Baptista Ferrari (1584-1655): “De florum cultura”. Rome: 1633. A parterre is an elaborate type of garden consisting of plant beds separated and connected by paths. Parterres feature ornate clipped box hedges swirling around pathways in mirrored or geometric patterns, often decorated further with statues. This design has been printed to match Chalk Paint® in Tilton.
