When you decide to buy our paints you are getting more than a beautiful colour and finish, you are getting passion and knowledge from one of this country’s leading interior designers.
Interior Design in a Tin
Edward has spent the last 30 years working in some of Britain’s finest buildings. He is a leading interior designer, architectural historian and ‘colourman’, renowned for restoring our heritage buildings, bringing his expert knowledge to conservation and his design flair to the creation of new spaces for modern living.
Edward is a master in both the art and science of colour, an expert with a mission to revive the world of natural colour. He also has that technical knowhow to translate historic reference into paint shades perfectly tuned for fashionable modern living. Unlike virtually all other paints on the market, our colours are designed, made and mixed by an expert in interiors.
Imagine if you could invite one of the country’s leading interior designers into your home to advise you on colour choices and types of paint for period or modern interiors. When our customers buy our paint, that is how we want them to feel, from our hand painted colour charts of unified tonal palettes reflecting years of expertise to our free colour consultancy and friendly advice.Our paints are optimised for performance in a modern world. Our colours are durable, colourfast and washable. We are leading the way in producing a truly eco friendly and completely natural designer paint range which is as easy to use as standard ‘plastic’ paint and is available in a range of finishes to suit your taste and needs.
Paint not plastic – let your walls breathe.
Our paint is microporous which means it lets walls and woodwork breathe naturally. It does not form a plastic film which traps in moisture and mould. Owners of heritage and listed buildings understand the importance of breathable paints on old substrates but this is just as important for modern buildings.
Don’t trap moisture in your walls. Experience the beauty of natural colours. Living, breathing colours.
Finish and Effect
Let the light in and discover colours alive with pure natural pigments with an extraordinary depth and response to light which synthetic paints just cannot recreate. The effect of our paint is as remarkable in ultramodern interiors as in a Georgian stately home and just as obvious in the neutral shades as in the bright, strong colours.
The knowledge and pure passion that has led Edward to create colours which convey such depth and light is unrivalled.
The matt chalky finish of our natural paints has both exceptional depth and a subtle, mutable response to light, which dull synthetic paints cannot mimic.
Our eco friendly paints are born out of our commitment to the environment. Beware of companies calling their products ‘green’ and ‘eco’. Get a full list of ingredients from them and prove it!
When is ‘Eco’ different?
Many companies branded as 'green' or 'eco' have made steps towards being more environmentally friendly but at Edward Bulmer Natural Paint accountable sustainability is in our DNA.
Edward is an active eco campaigner, hosting an annual Spring Greens Fair at his HQ in Herefordshire and chairing one of the UK's most forward thinking foundations on sustainable living. He is passionate about making our living spaces healthier for us, our buildings and our environment. For the past 10 years he has been working with specialist paint manufacturers to develop beautiful coloured paints which are both safer and healthier by returning to non toxic paint formulations. Both mainstream and premium plastic (acrylic) paints are largely made from petro chemicals derived from refined crude oil.
When you chose Edward Bulmer Natural Paint you are getting an unrivalled range of eco friendly paint created by someone who through his experience knows more about colour, buildings and design than most. His concern for the environment is because he wants his children to live on this amazing planet too!
Our Ingredients – the full declaration
We say - always ask for a full declaration of ingredients before buying. Any reputable company should provide a full list plus description of ingredients and where they are sourced. You can reference our list of synthetic ingredients if you want to understand them.
When you decide to use our natural paint, you are making more than a colour choice, a paint choice, a fashion choice or even a lifestyle choice – you too are choosing to make a difference.
Natural paints are made from raw materials such as plant extracts, chalk, earth minerals and linseed. They are non toxic and where possible have full organic or equivalent certification. We believe our paint helps to create a healthy atmosphere in your home, free of chemicals which can cause allergies, sleeping disorders and no doubt many other health issues not yet identified.
Kind to Buildings
Our paints are breathable so moisture and mould is not trapped in surfaces. It is also important that a building can breathe to expel toxic fumes.
Kind to the Environment
Above all we have a light touch on the planet. Our base paint manufacturer is CO2 neutral. The production process does not create vast quantities of toxic waste. Every ton of synthetic paint creates 30 tonnes of toxic waste.
