You may remember a recent post on Crown paint’s vintage paint range that was created to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Festival of Britain? Well, upscale (and ever-so-tempting) brand Fired Earth also created a range of colours to celebrate the historic event. The capusle collection by Kevin McCloud is made up of six bold and optimistic hues that capture the Mid-Century spirit, and I think they are some of Fired Earth’s best colours yet. My favourite is Race Yellow (5), closely followed by South Bank (4) – which hue would you decorate with?

  1. Wow they are fantastic!

    Would have to go with (6) Skylon Grey – there are endless colours that would sit so well with this. It is so diverse!

    But I really love (4) South Bank for it fun and vibrant vibe!

  2. I love living with color. How enchanting are these especially Festival Orange and Race yellow. Its my Caribbean roots, what can i say. Thanks Will, come to Barbados sometime.

  6. Hi! Where did you find the wooden chairs with the bright yellow cushions? They are so beautiful, and I’ve seen them a few places online, but usually in a post about paint or wallpaper. Do you know who makes the chair? I love that they have minimal upholstery (for my cats to destroy), but still look cheerful and comfy.
