Painting colour scheme

I thought that it would be worthwhile to record the brands and shades of paint we’ve used throughtout the barn, if for no other reason than to remind me when I come to repaint.

This is our complete palette for now. I like to keep things minimal, simple and fresh when it comes to the use of colour. I find strong, bold colours rarely pass the test of time when it comes to our ongoing enjoyment of and appetite for them.

In keeping with my healthy house ethos, I’ve tried to use products that are as natural as possible and ensured minimal VOC content (Volatile Organic Compounds which are generally considered to be mildly toxic). The only paint that I used, but have replaced with another is a soya based gloss paint that I used for internal woodwork, but proved to be of the wrong consistency to effectively cover prepainted skirting boards and architraves.

So here they are, obviously much is lost in posting photographs of colours…
