Mylands, Britain’s oldest family-owned and run paint and wood polishes manufacturer, is launching 31 striking new colours inspired by the world’s greatest city. Named after some of London’s most iconic buildings, districts and characters, the new colour palette pays homage to the capital’s unique stories of heritage and design, both historic and contemporary. Here at House of Coco we are thrilled by this new urban selection.
From the soft white tones of Maugham White No.2, created for a restoration project and named in honour of Syrie Maugham a leading interior decorator of the 1920’s and 1930’s who popularised all-white rooms, to the sumptuous deep purple tones of Duke’s House No.44 inspired by Sir William Davenant, poet and dramatist who established a theatre in Lincoln’s Inn Fields in 1661.
Each striking new colour shares a piece of London’s rich heritage, ideally suited to modern interiors. Seamlessly integrated into Mylands Colours of London palette, which features 120 timeless colours, the new colours blend effortlessly with existing classics and great favourites to create the ultimate paint collection. Subtle, statement, modern or traditional, Mylands’ paints suit all manner of settings whatever the style. These exciting new colours are the first additions to the Mylands Colours of London palette since its launch in 2012.
Historically trade only, Mylands has been the paint of choice for over 130 years in the film, theatre and television industry with guest appearances in some of the world’s most successful productions including James Bond, Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, Downton Abbey, Cinderella and Mr Selfridge. If it is good enough for Bond then it is sure enough good enough for House of Coco!
Available from September 2015, the new colours comprise a charming mix of elegant off-white and neutral shades, subtle pastels, bolder accents and sultry rich darks. Renowned for their thick, rich coverage and exceptionally highly pigmented depth of colour, Mylands paints are beautiful to look at yet strong, durable and easy to use.
