In the past whites derived from the minerals like Lime or Chalk used in their production. Adding oils to bind them to make more durable paint altered their brightness and generally warmed them to the eye. This is what we are used to these days though modern ‘bleached’ paints have lightened our palette. This white offers a bit of both – brightness but still a ‘fair’ amount of pigment to settle it down to a very slightly warm grey tone.
“When renovating and extending our house near Bath we put love and energy into every detail, from door handles, to floorboards and furniture to paintings. But the thing that made the biggest difference to creating the atmosphere of our dream home was the paint. Not only are the colours subtle and artistic, but the smell and chalky texture are part of the experience. We have a different colour in every room and these paints have defined the character of our house. We love them! and wouldn’t use anything else as they are truly sustainable and we know contain absolutely no nasty chemicals for us and our baby girl. “
