We're loving the new M&L Paints palette - which is inspired by the spectrum of colours found in classic architectureand the natural world - and we think you will too.
It's enough to make you want to shake out the dust sheets and brushes - or book someone with their own.
Within the colour card, there are 84 Marston & Langinger favourites such as ‘Drab’ and ‘Dormouse’, as well as a further 36 shades that have been retrieved from the archives. The result is a beautiful palette of rich, vibrant and muted tones.
The paints all share an intensity of colour, strength of pigment and opacity. The eclectic shades are well suited to historic or period homes, and will bring warmth and depth to contemporary spaces.
New additions include bold and vibrant shades such as ‘Lulu’, a vivid mid-tone orange with a retro feel that sits perfectly in the middle of red and yellow, to subtle hues such as ‘Polar Blue’, which takes inspiration from the magnificent naturally formed ice sculptures of the arctic.
Now under the umbrella of Alitex, a family-run greenhouse business, M&L paints are available in a host of finishes for both interior and exterior use - Interior Chalky Matt, Interior Eggshell and Full Gloss, as well as Exterior Eggshell and Masonry, so there is a wide spectrum of colour to suit a number of schemes in the home, garden or for adding kerb appeal.
All M&L Paints are solvent free, water based and meet high environmental standards.
£47.50 for 2.5L, Chalky Interior Matt / £60 for 2.5L Interior Eggshell / £62.50 for 2.5L Exterior Eggshell, mandlpaints.com
