Material of the Month: April 2015 – Eggshell Paint

Why it’s inspired us…

This paint is solvent free and completey free of Volatile Organic
Compounds (VOCs) and suitable for allergy and asthma sufferers.

It is produced in the UK and packaging is produced from recycled materials.

Eggshell paint is suitable for kitchens and bathrooms and give a washable low sheen finish.

Why we’d like it to inspire you…

Colour is very powerful in creating a mood, or conveying the purpose of a space, yet we are often afraid of committing to something bright or bold- what colour do you regret not trying in your house?

We painted these boards and there was no unpleasant smell or fumes, we’re not even sure we needed to open the window. Imagine that.
