Bygone shades from Albany

Bygone shades from Albany 1Albany Paints is marking 100 years of colouring people’s homes. As part of its programme to mark the year it has introduced a specially curated palette highlighting Albany’s history of colour with iconic shades from each decade.

The range includes:

Forest Green (1920s) – Synonymous with the Art Deco era, Forest Green is a deep jade with a hint of black which provides depth and character.

Sea Bird (1930s) – Sea Bird is a delicate grey blue. A favoured shade of the 30s that creates a sense of calm and tranquillity.

Sweet Pea (1940s) – The grounded blush pink is a 40s favourite. Bring Sweet Pea up to date with dark, inky accessories.

Daffodil (1950s) – Daffodil is a soft, happy yellow.

Thirst Quencher (1960s) – This fresh aqua is often considered retro but works equally well in a modern home. It’s a pure shade that can be muted with soft pastels or kept cool and crisp with white.

Apricot (1970s) – Bold and bright, Apricot is and arresting shade with a strong relationship with the 70’s where earth and spice tones were considered all the rage.

Strawberry (1980s) – Strawberry is a striking berry red that maintains a strong sense of colour for high impact schemes.

Mushroom (1990s) – This earthy Mushroom tone is a fine example of an easy neutral coveted in the 90s and is currently back in favour.

Garden Delight (2000s) – Garden Delight is an zesty lime green, a popular shade of the noughties. Use sparingly in unexpected details for a modern touch.

Seal (2010s) – Seal is a mid-grey, a homage to most.

Albany paint is exclusively available online or in-store at Brewers Decorator Centres.
