Haymes Paints has introduced seven new heritage shades, developed with the assistance of Dianne Gow, an interior decorator who sits on heritage committees, is a recognised expert on period homes and has specialised in restoration work for more than 20 years.
“This concept is our response to the home owners who painted their homes with heritage colour schemes in the 1980s and who are now saying: “we’ve done Brunswick Green and Indian Red - give us something different.
“People are becoming more confident and are looking for colours that are appropriate for heritage homes but that are outside the mainstream shades. There are many more heritage colours than most Australians know of and we want to inspire them with some new concepts.”
The new shades include Avoca Slate (dark grey), Dark Earth (deep taupe) and Light Stone (a golden ochre). Three blue-grey shades - Smoke Grey, PRU Blue aend Deep Saxe Blue - plus Camouflage Red (an old brick red) complete the new colours.
All heritage paints are authentic colours that have been developed in line with the British Standard and Australian Standard for such paints and have been endorsed by the National Trust of Australia.
Haymes Paint is the official supplier of restoration paint to the National Trust of Australia in Victoria, South Australia and Queensland.
