The Power of Paint

If you read my post last week you will already know I’ve been decorating and I’m pleased to say after hours and hours of painting I have now finished the job.  The hall, stairway and landing are now basking in mucky pink Tea Rose glory and I’m chuffed to bits with the end result.  It changes with the light from a deep pink to an almost nutty brown it is subtle and elegant and has won my heart.

I have been brave and painted everything in the same colour, woodwork, walls and ceiling.  I love the cocooning affect like being hugged in a cosy blanket, it has warmed the space wonderfully and I love the difference going from room to room into the deeply rich hallway, it has worked a treat and I’m very very happy with the result.

Tea Rose is only one of the 38 colour choices you have if you invest in Ateiler Ellis, I can now formally recommend this wonderful paint.  It applies beautifully and covers well, only two coats needed and it goes a long way, its one of the best paints I have used in a long time, rivalling other high end brands that I have tried.

The Ellis Paint collection is one to beat, with its beautiful tonal palette all working in harmony together creating a calming fusion that will work in any home.  Their ethos is simple and I couldn’t put it better myself.

Our paint is a carefully chosen palette of 38, calm luminous colours that offer a quiet, enveloping backdrop for you home.

Embracing our simple-useful-beautiful aesthetic, the colours are deeply rooted in the natural world, as well as personal memories, marks and fragments. Intensely pigmented, the colours are both familiar and comforting. We choose human, nature and art-based colours, rather than trend based palettes.

Inspired by the way we live in nature, in cities and society, the colours can soften a contemporary apartment, or infuse a traditional home with a new classicism.

All 38 colours work together in harmony, creating a generous choice of complete schemes.

Every colour is available in Matt Emulsion which is washable and scrubbable, Wood & Metal Paint in either a Matt or Eggshell finish; Floor Paint and Masonry Paint.

In keeping with our commitment to high-quality craftmanship and the best traditional and modern techniques, Ellis Paints are exclusively hand-mixed to order in London by the renowned paint makers Mylands”

No more words needed I think.  Cassandra has just released a new colour palette to add to the originals called Shadows & Light, creating 10 beautifully balanced deeply pigments Shadows.  Each one is an intensified version of it’s family hue, letting you create a soft connected palette for your home by layering, deepening or quietening each space by using different strengths of colour.  Crafting your home into a calm and relaxed place to live.

I whole heartedly approve of flow, having a colour palette that leads you from room to room making the spaces feel connected and the Ellis Paint palette definitely does just that.

So if you are thinking of a decorating project or a room refresh I highly recommend this sumptuous paint as a place to start.
