Introducing seven of the latest paint launches

Little Greene

Launched at this year’s Decorex 2018, Little Greene has introduced its new green colour palette collection. In collaboration with The National Trust, the range takes inspiration from the UK’s rich heritage and includes 20 original colours. It features, as shown, the bright green Sage & Onions shade, which is similar to the one used for the garden gate of Hill Top, based on Beatrix Potter’s farm in the Lake District.


Sanderson have updated their colour range with 50 new paint shades, adding to their 154-strong chart. The new palette complements traditional and contemporary interiors and includes the Newby Green shade, as shown. Inspired by nature, the new colours have been mixed by hand, in the studio and include a variety of greys, teal and chalky shades.

Designers Guild

As part of the new AW18 collection, Designer’s Guild introduces the Slate blue no.68 shade to its colour palette. Mixed with lead undertones, the neutral-grey blue is available in four finishes: matt emulsion and water-based eggshell, as well as floor and masonry paint.

Farrow and Ball

The Jitney No.293 is one of nine new colours introduced by Farrow & Ball. Launched at this year’s London Design Festival, the relaxed brown-based neutral shade is an earthy colour that would complement a range of interior schemes.

Benjamin Moore

With the Hale Navy shade, premium paint brand Benjamin Moore introduces the Dark Subtlety colour palette to its collection, as part of its 2019 colour trends. This deep tone resembles rich, maritime tones with a Light Reflectance Value of 6.3.

Crown Paints

The Powdered Clay matt emulsion by Crown is just one of the new colours introduced for 2019. The muted shade is part of its Spring/Summer collection, launching in January 2019. Forming part of the Redefined palette, it features a collection of contemporary chalky pinks with cement greys.

Graham & Brown

Graham & Brown introduces the new Sienna shade, an earthy pigment which features a modern take on a warm, neutral pink – suitable for interior or exterior use. The mixed-to-order paint can also be used on wood, plastic, MDF and non-ferrous materials.
