Nuances of Light


From passing clouds and the dipping sun, to the glow of bulbs and the flicker of fire, our paint colors gently shift in light and shad to bring life to your walls.


Each absorbing colour is created from a blend of up to five pigments.  As the day goes on, the varying undertones within every hue may become more or less prominent, making a blue feel slightly more blue, green or grey at times, but always true to itself.


The same colour in the same space can feel bright and airy in the morning sun, soft and gentle in the afternoon light or cocooning and intimate by the evening, bringing added complexity to your design scheme.

Our Unique Blend


Our immersive paint colours are blended in such a way that the rich pigments within subtly respond to each change of light and season.  The colours themselves do not change, and we thoroughly test every batch for colour consistency, but the rich ingredients and age-old recipes create absorbing colours with a unique character.


Firstly, chalk, china clay and titanium dioxide are mixed with water to create our base paint.  Then the pigments needed to create our signature depth of colour are carefully measured and added in at exactly the right amount.
