COLOUR IS EVERYWHERE

We are never without it, and it is never without:

Context

Shadow

Light

...making it much more complex than you first thought.



GOOD PAINT

Cheap paint will turn out to be an expensive mistake.

What is your time and sanity worth to you?
How much more of that cheap paint do you want to buy than you thought you needed to make it work?

Our paint isn't the cheapest, but it will cost you less.



MANIFESTO

Colour is everywhere.
It is never seen in isolation.

There is no such thing as a colour from the past, or from the future.

Purge the world of sappy credulousness.
Believe in shops, not galleries.

Choose the colour YOU like.
Don't listen to anyone else, including me.

Taste is simply confident decision-making.

Boldness is a personal measure.
It does not mean bright or startling.
It means doing what you want to.

Be bold.


WHAT THE HELL IS AN HISTORICAL COLOUR?

Samuel Pepys' Pantry Purple?
The exact shade of blue of Winston Churchill's wheelbarrow?
How does history make those colours right for YOU?
It doesn't.
You know a great colour when you see it.
End of story.



I LIKE

A yellow bicycle with silver wheels parked on a grey street.
A blue glass bottle in a pure white tiled bathroom.
A brightly coloured flag on a mountain range.
Clean and fresh, pierced with vivid colour.



DUTCH PAINT

Why Italian coffee?
Why German engineering?
Why British tailoring?

Because they are the best.
And the same goes for Dutch paint.

We are proud to work with Schaepman, who have been making the best paint money can buy since 1830.



KING OF PAINT

Simon can't paint a picture, let alone a wall.

But he can pour paint into a pot like no one else.
