The paint colours we choose to include on our heritage site are given a lot of thought.
There is a step by step process when choosing a colour:
Is what we are painting an original artifact of the house, and if so, what was its original colour? If so, can we get the exact replica of the original paint made?
Does the colour we like fit the time of the home?
Can we find the colour in a paint that can be recycled?
Can the colour be one of the 17 Steps To Sustainability colours?
