Dutch Orange | Edward Bulmer Paint

Dutch Orange

You could perhaps summarise the great John Fowler’s paint schemes as variations on coral pink, lime green and three shades of white. The one I have most admired is the coral pink and here is my homage to it. Of course, Fowler’s genius was to recognise that the quality of the paint was paramount, and he achieved his shades with coloured oil or watercolour glazes usually over a white base. This was an old technique, but one seldom practiced now as we are happy with matt emulsion. Our emulsion does, however, have the character of the oil bound distempers he used for basing out and our semi historical name for this colour is an affectionate nod to his approach to decorating when few valued historical decorating at all.

“We used Edward Bulmer's Natural Paint throughout our family home when we took it over from my husband’s parents. It was always a much loved home and although we have redecorated it from top to bottom the subtle colours give it a timeless air and have united new rooms that we have added with the old Jacobean features of the house.”
