Meet Jane, Our Dulux Colour Hero


Choosing paint for your home can be a tricky one. Do I go with a certain colour? Do I use a matt  base and do I need a primer? Questions like these sometimes need a little time and expertise to answer. Once a month, our Colour Hero Jane comes to our store to work  alongside Shay in our Paint Shop,  to help  and advise you with
your decorating projects.

She has become a part of our Grahams Family so we thought we would properly introduce her to you with a few little questions.

Give us an introduction and a little background history of yourself Jane.

“I’m a Colour Consultant for Dulux Paints - My background has always been in helping people with their
personal style. It’s my job as a colour consultant to help people choose colours for their decorating project.
But my job is not just about picking the prettiest colour though, it’s also about helping customers choose
the right paint for the right job.”

What do you think trends for Christmas will be?

“Soft tones of blues and pinks are definitely on trend this Christmas.They are lovely accent colours to play
with or you can be brave and take on a totally new colour scheme in your Christ mas decorations.”

What do you think of Dulux choice of colour for 2018?

“The colour of the year for 2018 is Heartwood. It’s a lovely warm colour with a hint of  heather  which is cosy and the perfect backdrop to use to unwind at home.”

If you could only have one colour for the rest of your life what would it be?

“Well if I was to have one colour for the rest of my life it would have to be a neutral so that I could then chop and change my colours in accessories. One of my favourite neutrals is True Fiction from the  MODA collection.”

What is your top tip on painting your home indoors?

“Each room at home presents different lighting challenges. It’s so important to TEST your colours   at home. My top tip is to paint out samples on an A4 card or bigger if  possible and  move this  around your room against different walls to see how the colour will look.”

You can chat to Jane about all your painting needs when she comes to our Paint Shop.
Dates are announced on Facebook and you can arrange an appointment or just call in.
