The V&A Classic Paint Collection, a selection of 40 distinctive colours inspired by the Victoria and Albert Museum’s (V&A) unique architecture and decorative interiors, is now available online at vandapaint.com and in store at the V&A.
A new website dedicated to the paint range has been unveiled at vandapaint.com, where you can discover the full colour palette, register for a free colour card, and shop the new paint collection.
Developed in close collaboration with Master Paintmakers, part of an international paint group, the Classic Collection uses the finest pigments to achieve the highest quality paint product available in its category, and allows homeowners to bring the palette of the Museum into their own home.
Available in Matt Emulsion, Eggshell, Chalk, and Masonry finishes, prices for Matt Emulsion are £36 for 2.5 litres, and £72 for 5 litres, with the 40 colours also available in sample pots at £4.75 each.
Speaking about the V&A Classic Paint Collection, Lauren Sizeland, Head of Business Development & Licensing at the V&A commented:
“We are delighted to have found a well-established UK manufacturer, capable of producing paint of such exceptionally high quality. The product meets the exacting standards of the museum, such that it now features on the walls of some of the V&A’s galleries, the new shop and within the Museum’s Grand Entrance. We hope this will prove to be a long and successful collaboration”.
Highlights from the palette include Minton, a tinted blue-green which is reminiscent of the Majolica-clad columns that once ran throughout the Silver Gallery.
Portico is a versatile mid-neutral suited to both classic and contemporary schemes and works as a tonal layer with Illusory Marble and Leighton.
To create a statement in the home, Cole Grey provides a rich grey tone named in honour of Henry Cole, the V&A’s first Museum director. Matched with Percival Pink, the two colours will enhance a period or contemporary room space.
Victoria Plum – named in tribute of Queen Victoria – is an intense, deep purple shade, providing a modern twist on a classic kitchen or living room.
