Black Ceilings, Wallpaper & Porters Paints, What A Great Week!

This week I have been extremely busy with an exciting commercial project.

Commercial colour specification is something I am really loving at the moment because it allows for so much more scope than many residential homes.

In my current job I was asked for black ceilings and wallpaper… I said “absolutely!”  What a fabulous request!

As soon as I heard black, I thought of Dulux Domino and as soon as I heard wallpaper, I thought of Porters Paints.

If you have not heard of Porters Paints, let me open your world to a very special and boutique paint company that create incredible paint products and wallpapers.

Porters make water based, low VOC (toxic), durable, easy to apply and hand-made paints.  My favourite is their Eggshell Acrylic and I use it in my own home.

Visiting a Porters Paints store is also an experience of delving into a whole new world of colour, paint and wallpaper.

When sourcing (with much delight and joy) the wallpaper for this project I visited their Fitzroy store.  A colour consultant at a Porters Paints store is just like a kid in a candy store.

My choice for this building was their Nairobi Dusk design, pictured here in White Quartz, Twilight and Granite.  You’ll have to stay tuned to see which colour my client chose, but I can’t wait to see and show you the results.

If you’re looking for inspiration for your next painting project I highly recommend taking a look at Porters Paints.

They have stores in Melbourne and Sydney and you can order online to have your paint delivered, which is what I do.
