If we’re not jetting off or seeing family and friends at Easter, with four whole glorious days off, it seems the next best past time in the UK is sprucing up our homes and gardens. So it’s fitting that Fired Earth has just launched 12 new paint shades for 2019.

Arriving just in time for any decorating projects planned over the forthcoming spring bank holidays, the new colours have been chosen to fit seamlessly into the brand’s original paint range, so it’s easy to work them into a scheme with other shades in the collection.
In addition, the new shades have been designed to work alone, or in groups of three – and are available in finishes for use indoors or out.
Névé, Morchella and Masilla provide a wonderfully modern neutral collection; Araucana Shell, Prehnite and Selva are beautifully complex natural greens; Celadon’s Robe, Jeane and Under the Wave are a gorgeously up-to-date take on blues; and Moon Grape, Magenta Oaks and One October Morning are a dramatic take on pink tones.
The matt emulsion produces a flat ‘chalky’ and wipe-clean finish, while the eggshell is formulated to resist moisture and staining and will dry to a subtle low-sheen finish. So they can be used in a variety of rooms, including the kitchen and bathroom.
If you’re thinking about your front door, window frames or the shed, there’s also an exterior masonry paint which provides a hardworking smooth finish that protects against the elements.
There’s also a lot of inspiration to be found on the Fired Earth website, which showcases a host of statement-making looks.
£42 for 2.5 litres of matt emulsion, Fired Earth.
