Features and benefits

A Vardo is a traditional horse drawn gypsy or Romany wagon. A similar colour was used in the intricate patterning of these vehicles (usually over red) and this was seen as an important cultural high point in decoration. This rich teal is so full of life and joy it seemed natural to name it after something renowned for its flamboyant colour. This colour works very well with reds or dark greys. Dark Tones Primer & Undercoat.

  • We want you to be satisfied with your colour selection. Not all monitors will display colours the same and paint tins may not show the same colour as your walls do in natural light. We therefore recommend you order a tester pot online or pop in store to pick one up so you are sure that this is the right colour for you.

Had a very clear idea in my mind about the shade of teal I wanted, and after testing various brands' offerings at home & finding them all to be too blue, too light, too dark etc, we tested Vardo #288. We actually tried the 'Estate' version but it was quite chalky, so settled on the 'Modern' emulsion for a slightly higher sheen.
It is not the cheapest, and it smells SO BAD when you open the tin, but it is absolutely gorgeous, exactly what I was after; a pure, vivid, bold colour to revamp our bedroom. It went on great with a brush or a roller. I have also used what was left over to paint some pine furniture to match (using a furniture primer first) and it looks really good, more durable than the actual furniture paint I bought!
