What's New In Our Own Little World
ANNIE SLOAN OXFAM COLLABORATION October 12 2017
Annie Sloan has teamed up with Oxfam with her brand new colour, Lem Lem. Every pot of Lem Lem sold will raise vital funds for Oxfam, helping people beat poverty worldwide.
Annie’s inspiration for this colour came from the soft green of the fields of alliums that she saw when visiting Oxfam’s Ethiopian Seed Project earlier this year. The plants are grown by women farmers supported by Oxfam.
The name Lem Lem means ‘to flourish’ in Amharic, the language of Ethiopia. It’s a word than Annie overhead the women farmers say, and thought it was the perfect name for the new colour because it represents hope, just like the Oxfam’s Seed Project.

Introducing the newest colour to the range: Giverny is a bright, cheery, clean, cool blue in the Annie Sloan palette. It is near the greener range of blues, without any red in it. It is a perfect colour for a modern contemporary palette, and looks great with bright, warm colours (such as Barcelona Orange and Scandinavian Pink) and cool neutrals (such as Paloma) as well as greens from the Annie Sloan range.
