Relying mainly on yellow ochre this colour has all the character of the invaluable earth pigment. Just by adding white and a touch of chrome yellow to give it zing it makes a beautiful wall paint. Like all our colours, Ochre is made with gentle, plant-based chemistry which does not cost the earth – use our earth-friendly paints for a greener future.
As background, the house is a fairly undistinguished 1960s house, so it lacks interesting features, but it has large windows and it’s very light. For this reason we chose Ochre for the main room, which is our sitting room. It faces east, so on a good day the sun comes streaming through the windows in the morning, and I wanted something yellow to enhance the sunlight. The photos show it in the morning light, but it is equally lovely in lamplight in the evening.
