The Daily Telegraph - Telegraph Magazine - - Home & Design - Talib Choudhry

Founded more than 20 years ago by the in­te­rior de­signer David Oliver, Paint & Pa­per Li­brary has be­come a favourite with dec­o­ra­tors thanks to its un­usual pal­ette of 180 colours. The highly pig­mented paints are man­u­fac­tured in the UK us­ing tra­di­tional meth­ods, but Oliver of­ten trav­els to re­mote des­ti­na­tions to fnd in­spi­ra­tional shades in cen­turies-old build­ings. For those of us who founder when con­fronted with a paint chart, the Ar­chi­tec­tural Colours sys­tem is a god­send, ofer­ing 95 colours in fve grad­u­ated strengths that can be used har­mo­niously on walls, ceil­ings and wood­work. Tra­di­tion­al­ists may pre­fer the Orig­i­nal Colours range, of which Erica (a laven­der-grey hue shown on the walls here) is the star. From £42.50 for 2.5 litres (paintand pa­per­li­brary.com).
