I love my husband to bits but he frustrates me when he procrastinates . About 4 months ago he decided he was going to decorate our living room and as you can imagine four months and four tester pots later I was no further forward.
So when I came across a review for a new kind of paint I decided that this would be the perfect opportunity to give him the kick up the butt he needed.
To be honest I was excited about NaturePaint as soon as I started reading up on it. As a family with a child with special needs the fumes from paint can cause a few issues and to be perfectly truthful every time we paint I end up with a migraine and this was something that I was not looking forward too but after reading up on NaturePaint I was hopeful that this wasn’t going to happen.
You see NaturePaint have five values which they call the 5 Ps
As a paint made only from natural and non-toxic ingredients, we put people, their families and their health first. We’re here to ensure that the painting process is as safe and healthy as possible so you can decorate without worry.
So for us this is perfect, no nasty fumes causing me headaches.
NaturePaint is fully biodegradable so any waste can be composted safely. All of our packaging is 100% recyclable for minimal impact on the planet. Unlike our competitors, we consider every aspect of our paint’s production from creation, to delivery to disposal. That’s why we can say we are the only paint brand completely free from harm.
This i found pretty impressive as we try as a family to protect the environment when we can.
Our colour intensity, fade resistance and coverage is painstakingly tested and trialled to ensure we can match the industry standard. We’re committed to creating safe paint with no sacrifice.
This had me hopeful as many times you find things that are eco-friendly do not do the job as well.
We won’t compromise on our ethics: all of our paint is free from carcinogens, petrochemicals, synthetic ingredients and VOCs. We are the only paint to be certified to be totally free of the compounds known to contribute to climate change.
Again this is fantastic and had me really excited, I value companies that stay true to their beliefs.
Our paint is made in Cornwall from natural and local materials including Cornish clays, French ochres and Italian sienna for naturally rich authentic colour.
To be honest this is good as anyone who has visited cornwall knows of the true beauty in the landscape etc.
So from only reading the website I was excited but like all things the proof is found in the end result.
So off I went on my happy little way to choose the colour’s I wanted for my living room.
Now I’m not a very adventurous person when it comes to bright colours. I am happier in a more muted, nature background. But to be honest whatever my taste and style was NaturePaint had a fantastic selection for me.
I was after a light natural colour and had loads to choice from, it was getting dangerous as I could not make a decision before my husband finally decided on Yarrow a lovely warm deep cream.
The delivery was quick but my husband did look rather puzzled when the box arrived, I think I had forgotten to mention that in came in powder form and he was expecting tins. WHOOPS
He had never worked with a powder before but he was willing to give it a go and found the whole mixing experience to be simple and easy.
Alan was soon working away and was really impressed with the coverage. He said he was really impressed with the consistency, to which I replied “I hoped he was painting not drinking it.”
The paint did go on really well and the whole room was painted in a number of hours.
I was really impressed with the colour but mostly I was super impressed by the lack of migraine. The first paint job ever that I had not received a migraine. That was a big thumbs up from me.
But to be honest as much as I try to explain the beauty of this paint I decided that proof would be more useful.
The finished living room.
I am really impressed with Naturepaint and so was my husband.
