Colour Swatch
Being independent we can offer impartial advice on any of your decorating needs. We do not employ our own painters and decorators and therefore are not in competition with our trade customers. If you need a painter we can usually recommend someone to you.


We offer a free delivery service in Edinburgh, Lothians and the Borders for both Trade and Retail customers. Ask for details when placing your order.
