The pigment Montpellier yellow was also known as Patent yellow in the late 18th century and was one of a small number of fashionable bright yellows that only a few could afford to use as a wall paint. This did not deter John Soane who famously used it to decorate his Drawing Room with it (the scheme was recreated in 1987). My take on the colour is softened and greyed just a little to make it a frankly, more useable colour. You can be reassured, when using Patent Yellow as all our colours, there are no nasty chemicals and no odour in our natural paints.
The Patent Yellow has worked brilliantly in the nursery and bathroom toning in so perfectly with the Turnell and Gigonwallpaper
