Discover Frenchic’s new Chalk Wall Paint colours for 2023

Our newly expanded Chalk Wall Paint range offer 150 colours, catering to diverse tastes and design needs.

The year saw an emphasis on whites and off-whites, which remained popular for their calming effect and adaptability to various interior styles. Shades like Cloud 9, Ghost, Moon Whispers and Marshmellow exemplified this trend, blending subtlety with nuanced tones to create serene and stylish spaces​​.

The standout shade of the year was Silver Birch – a light greige that captured the public's imagination for its calming, understated elegance. This colour perfectly encapsulated the year's trend with a move towards shades that offer tranquillity, sophistication and versatility.

New additions to the Al Fresco range

In 2023, Frenchic's Al Fresco paint range saw an exciting expansion too, reflecting our commitment to meeting customer demand and trends in outdoor decor.

The addition of five new colours – Hornblower, Little Duckle, Olivia, Steaming Green, and Wedding Cake – brought fresh energy and choices to the collection. Each colour was carefully selected based on customer feedback and existing popularity within other Frenchic ranges. These additions not only expanded the permanent Al Fresco range palette to a total of 26 colours but also enhanced its versatility.

In addition to the five new Al Fresco colours, 2023 also brought an exciting twist with the introduction of Limited Edition Colours to our Al Fresco range. Celebrating the summer vibes, we introduced four ice-cream inspired pastel paints: MatchaPistachePoppet and Yes please!

These colours captured the warmth and brightness of summer while invoking nostalgia with their playful, ice-cream-like tones. As winter approaches, it might be a tad late for those summer vibes. In this case, you can't go wrong with Hot Lips. This stunning scarlet-red will warm you up in the colder months ahead.
