This is us

Hey, want to know who we are and where we came from? Here’s a quick bio.
Our parent company Polyseam have been at the cutting edge of science for 25 years, making ground-breaking trade products such as filler, sealants, and more recently, an amazing range of fire retardant paint with special properties to protect against the spread of fire. As an innovative, award-winning brand - used worldwide and loved by professionals – we knew this paint was a game changer and needed to make it accessible to everyone. We wanted to bring it straight to your door.
In fact, we pride ourselves on being a game changer in more ways than one. It doesn’t take a scientist to know that the market is drowning in paint brands, but as our chemists teamed up with our passionate design creatives - interior addicts included – it became clear that there was definitely more we could bring to the shelves than was already out there. We didn’t want to just stop at Fire retardant paint - so we kept researching, brainstorming, creating, developing and refining. We were – are - totally paint-obsessed.
With a huge crush on colour, we poured over thousands of hues to perfect our edit of 72 eye popping colours and contemporary neutrals. And because we knew from experience how hard it is to choose one blue from a thousand blues, we placed them into capsules to make it easy to find ‘The One’.
Then, knowing how annoying it is holding colour charts against walls to see how a colour might look, we created our unique PEEL & STICK™ colour book with peelable, stickable, reusable colour swatches. Simple.
We fell in love with our colours, giving them names influenced by both our Nordic and British roots, and decided to send out our hand-painted dry colour-samples into the world as Painthouse Pals – the perfect way to introduce their true colours to you. We wanted to make the entire process of choosing paint colour a joy, rather than a chore.
Then there’s the paint and the painting process. Being water based and toxin free was always a given, making it child and pet safe as well as smell free. Being super quick dry was a must-have – so you could decorate a room or paint a wardrobe inside a day. Being a multi-tasker was simply essential in this modern day, so all our paints work on walls, ceilings and wood.
Finally, we bring you an e-shop so that you can confidently order paint online and have it express delivered to your door, cutting the hassle out of paint shopping, as well as working with fabulous, like-minded partner stockists, for a more personal touch.
So, this is us. Here we are. Super excited about bringing you our vividly colourful collection of paint colours. We’re so proud to be able to finally offer you our bespoke fire retardant paints.
