This booklet shows you our edited collection of 28 shades, at a glance. It’s arranged by palette, so you can see how the four shades in each group work together. As well as our core colours, you’ll also get a booklet with our seasonal and archive shades in too.

Try out tester pots
Think of our colour card as an introduction to our shades. After that, comes our sample pots. They’re what really bring the colour to life and help you to see how it changes throughout the day depending on the light.
How to use it – emulsion
Matt emulsion is generally best for walls as the flat finish blurs any imperfections in the plaster. It’s not quite as tough as eggshell, which is why that’s the preferred option for woodwork, but there’s nothing to say you can’t use matt emulsion for these area if you’re after a chalky character.
How to use it – eggshell
Our eggshell has a 10–20% sheen level. It’s best over the top of our primer on woodwork (like furniture, skirting boards and doorframes) or metal. And because its sheen makes it more durable, it suits walls in higher traffic areas (like hallways) or where you’re likely to need to wipe them (such as kitchens). It’s the ideal choice for bathrooms too, as it’ll stand up to the steamy atmosphere.
To make choosing paint a bit easier, we have an edited collection of 28 shades. They’re split into seven nature-inspired palettes, each with four hues that work together particularly well. Then we have a new seasonal shade twice a year that moves into our archive afterwards – you can still order these whenever you like though.
About our paints
Our paint formulas are made with both people and planet in minds. They’re just about as low in VOCs (volatile organic compounds, which release harmful chemicals and unpleasant odours) as is possible to be, and are both suitable for plant-based lifestyles and never tested on animals. They’ve also got great coverage – depending on the colour and surface, just two coats should be all you need. They’re made in the UK by our trusted partners who have been mixing paint since 1740.
Like all our paints, this one comes as matt emulsion or eggshell. The emulsion’s shine-free and gives walls a velvety look. And the eggshell’s like its namesake – there’s just a hint of sheen. Both are water-based, so all you’ll need to clean your brushes (and yourself!) is warm water and perhaps a little soap.
