Grab a roller and add some carnival spirit to a tired piece or wall with these alerting hues…
BURNT ORANGE 80
Inspired by the rind and flesh of ripened blood oranges, this vibrant and vivid kick has a fabulously retro feel. Ideal for adding bright pops in small spaces, it contrasts beautifully with both light and dark shades for captivating results. Try jazzing up your potting shed or outdoor space with citrus hits on classic gardening accessories and furniture for a bloom and grow boost.
A visually striking green shade with a blue undertone, use this incredibly bright delight in sunny areas to reflect the light. Soften with the soothing cool Cucumber or boldly contrast with Mullet.
This breezy, orangey yellow with red undertone, takes inspiration from the multi-coloured flowers of Gladius - the perennial cormous flowering plant. It’s vividness promises to contrast dramatically with almost any shade, making it a versatile choice in any scheme and perfect for a stand-out feature wall.
WIMPOLE POPPIES 93
The red-flowered corn poppy is the muse for this incredibly daring, eye-catching red - an inspired blend of magenta, orange and red to give colour depth and dimension. So as not to dominate an area, use as an accent hue in colour blocked ‘zones’ and pair with Plaster Pink for a classic, period finish.
You’ll be happy to hear that all M&L Paints are solvent free, water-based, sustainable and environmentally friendly, available in Chalky Interior Matt, Interior Eggshell, Full Gloss, Exterior Eggshell and Masonry finishes.
