Introducing Annie Sloan Fabrics

New for Spring at Brocante Home is a collection, just introduced by Annie Sloan, of fabric directly from France and Belgium. 

The cotton, ticking and floral fabrics coordinate beautifully with Annie's Chalk Paint® palette and each other. All are suitable for upholstery, pillows and curtains. In keeping with the French tradition, some of the fabrics even come in double widths (110 inches) - perfect for duvet covers, headboards or even wall coverings. 


This fabric was first printed on "toile", a light canvas like fabric in the late 18th century, in a town near Paris called Jouy. Frequently used in the French Royal Court at Versailles, toiles always depict pastoral scenes.

Normandie: The toile depicts delightful country scenes in a warm sepia on a light dusty greyed lilac. It comes in double width. 

Charcoal Pastoral: An elegant fabric printed in a charcoal graphite color on an off white pure fine cotton.The pictures of idyllic country scenes are drawn beautifully and finely. It is also in the double width.


A tightly woven, cotton fabric originally used for mattress covers.

Paris Noir: A black cotton woven with a putty colored background to soften the black.

Monaco:  One of our most popular ticking fabrics as it has a lot of colors yet it is not bright or over powering so it works with just about everything. The colours are light denim blue, pale blue, chestnut brown, white, wine red, oatmeal, grey and pale sage green. 

Panama Rouge: A horizontal stripe in off white and tomato red in different intensities. Being double width the fabric could be hung so the stripes are vertical.

Gigi: A fabulous stripe of reds, pinks and greens.

Floral & Decorative:

Faded Roses: A beautiful old print that look fabulous with Old White.

French Hens: A fun and lively fabric that looks perfect with some of Annie's more sophisticated and  intense colors such as Arles and Emperors Silk. It is an old design and comes straight from a French factory. 

Come see the new fabrics at both our shops.  

Bonne Journée!
