“Natural, Not Plastic” Paint from Edward Bulmer in Herefordshire

May 27, 2021

Interior designer, historian, and self-described “colorman” Edward Bulmer is on a mission: to bring back natural paint made from sustainable sources. “We mix our paints simply using the twelve natural earth and mineral pigments which have been used by artists for centuries.” he says. “Packed with pigment, our paint offers a patina alive with pure color and because they all come from the same natural sources, they’re all in perfect harmony with each other. Our paint is microporous which means it lets walls and woodwork breathe naturally.”

Here’s a look:
