Craig & Rose 1829

Craig & Rose is one of the UK’s longest established paint manufacturers and the luxurious ‘1829 Vintage Colour Collection’ is its flagship range. Named after the year the company was founded, the luxurious 1829 collection was launched in 2000, then relaunched in 2017. It was researched using the company’s historic archives and developed to reflect its heritage. Featuring 110 vintage shades, the 1829 Vintage Colour Collection recreates colours from historical periods including Art Deco, Victorian, Renaissance and the Ancient World. All the colours come in three easy-to-maintain traditional finishes - Chalky Emulsion, Eggshell and Gloss – and the finish variations mean you can co-ordinate colours for both your walls and woodwork.
