Lem Lem The Story of A Color

I have a giant brand crush on Annie Sloan and her chalk paint. As a maker she is more than just a paint manufacture but a real creative and a maker who has revolutionized an entire industry. And today we are so excited to announce a collaboration between Annie Sloan and Oxfam including a new color.

Annie Sloan with Lem Lem

You guessed it this color has a story.

From Oxfam’s Ethiopian Seed Project comes our newest color Lem Lem.

Nature and life is often our inspiration for colors and Lem Lem was inspired by the fields of alluviums that Annie saw in Ethiopia.

Grown by women farmers who are supported by the Oxfam project it is a soft warm green. In Amharic the Ethiopian language it means Hope.

Every pot of Lem Lem sold will raise vital funds for Oxfam helping people in need world-wide. Not just in Ethiopian currently Oxfam is working to help closer to home with the response to Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.


It literally is Hope In A Can


This limited edition color is great for creating a retro 50’s look, and works well as part of a vintage floral or botanical style. It works so well as a lively pop of color on any piece of furniture and is certain to brighten a room, bring a smile to all who enter.

Join us to see the wonderful color of hope and find out what you can create this fall. We will have Lem Lem in the store, and be painting up a storm with it, staring on October 12th.

XOXO Lydia
