A New Line of Eco Paints from England’s First Family of Design

November 12, 2014

Nina Campbell, the grande dame of English decorating, has an equally accomplished tribe: Her daughter, Rita Konig, a former Domino editor, is now a contributor to T Magazine (oh, she also wrote a nice blurb for our Remodelista book). Another daughter, Alice Deen, works at Nina Campbell in PR, and her son, Max Konig, runs the business end. Now, Nina’s niece, Vanessa Galloway (she runs the design firm Konig Interiors with her husband, Jasper), has launched a line of eco-friendly paints.

“We founded Konig Colours after we found ourselves frustrated at the range and depth of paint colors available in the UK,” the couple says. Working with Paintplus, they’ve devised a range of “brilliant, diverse, and beautiful paint colors that’s not just available to decorators and private clients, but to the decorating-mad British public as well.” The line is sold at Nina Campbell’s London shop and online at Konig Colours. Tres jolie.
