Modernist

The modernist period (1918-1950) was hugely influential on the architecture and interiors that we see today, with the ethos of “less is more” and “form follows function”.‘Modern’ style, (which is different from contemporary style), is characterised by clean lines and natural materials such as wood, leather, wool and polished metal. White, grey and black are popular, alongside muted tones such as olive green or deep blue.

    1829

    A dark iron blue with hints of warm grey, this shade was used by 19th century painters as a warmer alternative to black. Inspiration for this colour was taken from the Modernist period. Use with our 1829 White Undercoat.
