Product Information


London Brown No 287 is a warm, dark brown. It’s like a rich, chocolate brown - comforting yet luxurious. A deep, brown wall is a good backdrop to vibrant wall art. It can create an enveloping and cosy atmosphere. Contrast it with paint colours like taupe, or other neutral light brown tones for an earthy, natural looking room.


Did you know that our paints are eco-friendly? We manufacture them to be kinder to people and our planet. Being water based and with a low VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) content, they are almost solvent free. We’re unlike many manufacturers as we still use natural earth pigments in our paint. That makes them sumptuously deep and rich in colour as well as safer and better for the environment.

Formulations are easy to apply, quick to dry and easy to clean off paint brushes. Plus, they have minimal odour. The exterior and interior paints are durable, washable and, as such, ideal for busy households.

Our signature, the Marble Matt Emulsion paint, is a water based acrylic emulsion. It’s outstanding opacity results in excellent coverage. A single litre of our emulsion paint will cover around 15m2.

Our interior and exterior wood and metal paints are available in a range of finishes. Choose from matt (8% sheen), eggshell (23% sheen) or gloss (80% sheen). The exterior paint is extremely hardwearing and perfect as spray paint. Try the wood and metal paints on furniture, decking, front doors or gates and railings.

Prep is the key for perfect paintwork. Make sure to have tools, fillers, sealants, sand paper and paint ready for your projects or renovations. When it comes to painting any surface, be it woodwork, metalwork or masonry, make sure to put the work in before application To get the best effect, ensure surfaces are smooth, bump and dirt free before applying a primer and the final choice of colour. See our range of woodcare products to apply on furniture and wooden floors.
