From frankly unpalatable beginnings Mummy became a recognised term (even mentioned by Shakespeare) for an old brown. As you might guess, it described the appearance of mummified remains and indeed was made from them until the late C19th when it became deeply unfashionable. Now that it would be unthinkable to create a colour in this way I feel at liberty to use it for a colour that is rightly fashionable again! We declare all our ingredients in our natural paint range, including Mummy. We create honestly colourful finishes in Emulsion, Water Based Eggshell and Gloss.
Getting the canvas of your room right is a challenge for any interior designer, so I was delighted when I discovered the Edward Bulmer paint range. The natural pigments that they use in their paints really do bring your interior to life and give their palettes a versatility and depth that I have failed to find elsewhere.
