Quality paint for your painting project
A fresh coat of paint can transform your home, and if you’re going to take the time to paint your living room, bedroom or even the exterior of your house, it makes sense to invest in quality paint. High quality paint is more durable, making it resistant to mildew, fingerprints and fading. When you choose good quality paint, it could save you money too as you’ll often need less coats thanks to the pigments. The higher the paint quality, the higher the pigments, with greater pigmentation resulting in greater depth, coverage and colour.
Inspired by London
Choose our Colours of London range for a glorious range of paint colours inspired by the British capital. Whether you select the classic Mayfair Dark No. 218, a sophisticated, inviting blue. A delicate Holland Park No. 5 that evokes period charm. Or even a rich, warm Dulwich Red, introduce a glimpse of London life into your home.
Choosing the right paint colour
The best way to select a paint colour is to think about the feeling you wish to evoke. Do you want to make the space feel warm and cosy, fresh and light or sophisticated and decadent? Use this to guide your colour choice, ordering a small sample paint can in your chosen Mylands shade and using your paint brushes to create swatches of colour to place in the area to be painted. Observing the colour swatches at different times of day allows you to see the effect of light and shade on your paint choice, so you can make sure you’re picked the right one.
