The import of hardwoods from the West Indies gave cabinet makers stable and attractively figured woods which became highly sought after in the C18th. Red dyes could be extracted from these timbers and they were often named after the country in which the tree grew. Nicaragua and Honduras were the source of timber that gave its name to purply red hues such as the one we have mixed to give a deep colour without making it over fragrant.
"Our decorator decided to use it just in case, so not sure if we really needed it or not. And after being worried he wasn’t keen on our non-Dulux choice, (he told me he has only used natural paint (Auro) four times in forty years) he said he thought it was great, went on well and lovely coverage. So happy all round."
