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.
I have just finished painting my bathroom in Azurite and had to tell you, although you obviously already know..........the best emulsion I have ever used, stunning results and the coverage is amazing, only needed one coat!! I used your interior eggshell a couple of years ago and that was heaven to use too.......congratulations...........the colour looks amazing with the white porcelain, nearly used grey but this is fantastic.......and different!!
