Fired Earth: Mid-Century Colours

March 3, 2011

A positively positive paint palette – these optimistic new colours are inspired by the 1951 Festival of Britain and have been launched by Kevin McCloud at Fired Earth just in time for the 60th anniversary of that event (this May)…

This chic ‘Mid-Century Colours’ range contains colours such as ‘South Bank’, ‘Festival Orange’ and ‘Skylon Grey’ – it’s a jolly retro palette with a very post-war British feel. I like ‘Race Yellow’ best. Check out the May issue of Ideal Home (out in April) for more Festival of Britain buys, including wallpaper from Mini Moderns and silk cushions from RE. – Ellie

    I love these colours, but then I’m a mid-century kind of person! And I really love that photo of the palette.

    Fab, just love this look!

  4. Helen Says:

    Totally love these. *Wish* they were on sale out here. (Do you think paint could count as cabin luggage?)

  5. Kate Says:

    That’s my kitchen re-decoration sorted! Thank you Fired Earth!
