I’m delighted to announce that this autumn I'll be launching my brand-new Wall Paint range. After years of product development, colour refining experimentation, and rigorous laboratory testing, I finally have a Wall Paint formula good enough to join our Chalk Paint® as the best paint option for those who care about quality and love colour.
I have been inspired by the most beautiful interiors around the world my entire life, and my career has been devoted to the discovery, the promotion and the restoration of incredible homes. From Scandinavian palaces to French chateaus via salons of artistic experimentation such as Charleston Farmhouse, there is a rich history of interior design from which we can draw inspiration when painting and decorating our own homes. I’ve looked to past successes, overarching trends through the history of trends, and iconic rooms to handpick a capsule collection of the 32 best colours for your homes.

Most of the new shades are developed from mixes of Chalk Paint® colours; Knightsbridge Green is a combination of Amsterdam Green, Oxford Navy and Athenian Black whilst Piranesi Pink is Primer Red with Old White. This is to help you build a tonal scheme within your home, using what you already know about colour to build an aesthetic which is strong and directional; classic and sophisticated; or cosy and luxurious. Pieces of furniture in sympathetic and contrasting Chalk Paint® colours will elevate your overall look - and when you can paint everything from your flooring to lamp shades the only limit to how you can transform your home is your imagination!

Importantly for a premium paint, all 32 shades are hardworking, practical, and (in common paint parlance) highly “scrubbable”. They’ve taken a long time to bring to market because my standards are so high and uniting ease of use, depth of pigment, and durability has taken years to perfect. I’m delighted to say that this Wall Paint ticks every box, and I can’t wait to see these colours in your homes.
