A curated range of 48 Edward Bulmer natural paint colours is now available at OKA.com
What's more, to celebrate the launch, Edward Bulmer will be giving a series of talks at OKA this week, on how to choose and use colour.
From best-selling whites and dusky neutrals to more vibrant colours, each of the 48 paints have been carefully selected by OKA Creative Director, Sue Jones, and Edward Bulmer to create a tonally harmonious palette to choose from.
Edward Bulmer Natural Paint is the paint of choice for Sue, her co-founders Annabel Astor and Lucinda Waterhouse and OKA’s team of Interior Designers.
Natural paints are made from raw materials such as plant extracts, chalk, earth minerals and linseed. Edward Bulmer natural paints are non toxic and most have full organic or equivalent certification.
The paints are breathable so moisture and mould is not trapped in surfaces. This also helps to create a healthy atmosphere in your home, free of chemicals which can cause allergies, sleeping disorders and other health issues, so they're great for children's rooms.
It is also important that a building can breathe to expel toxic fumes, which also helps to create a healthy natural home for you and your family.
The paints also have a light touch on the planet, as the production process does not create vast quantities of toxic waste (unlike synthetic paint). Find out more here.
