Exquisite Eco Paint, Eco Emulsion and Lime Wash, London

‘Creating and making colours gives me joy; colours transform people’s lives. I feel so lucky – I am the #thecolourwoman and I am doing exactly what I love to do.’

Francesca Wezel, founder and director

Welcome to Francesca’s Paints; established in 1996, our artisan studio is based in Battersea and everything we do here is handmade. Featured in many magazines, including Elle Decoration, The World of Interiors and Living etc, our velvety, light absorbent paint is made with great care and love – each Colour Collection has a story, each bespoke tin of paint is hand-mixed and our beautiful colour charts are hand painted.

Our story

One of the first eco-friendly paint companies in the UK, our bases, the Lime Wash and the Eco Emulsion, come from Italy and we colour them in the studio. We love making exclusive, elegant and unique colours and colour matching.

Francesca's Paints are:

  • Inspired by travel, nature and art
  • Intensely pigmented
  • Breathable
  • Plastic free
  • Low VOC
  • Free from solvents (and their components). Our paints have a very low impact on our health and the environment*.
Our approach to crafting our luxury paint is incredibly hands-on – we do everything in our studio and keep a formula for every colour we make. Our pigments are of the highest quality and we only use 12, a combination of mineral, organic and synthetic.

How can we work together?

We have the pleasure of working with a high-profile list of clients and properties across the country, from fantastic designers to famous actors and many more. We’d love to hear from you, if you are interested in working together, you can visit our studio, call us on 0207 228 7694 or email us to book an appointment.

Happy clients:

'Francesca's colour mixing service is impeccable. We have designed colours together from tiny scraps of William Kent 18th century velvet to bits of bark off Eucalyptus trees. Who else could offer such a service! Vive Colour, Texture and Joy. Vive Francesca Queen of Pigment!'
- Miv Watts, Interior Designer mivwatts.com

‘Francesca is a total joy to work with. Her paints are wonderfully chalky and her colours have depth and life. We constantly work with unique, vintage materials and textiles so having the opportunity to bespoke colour match is incredibly helpful.’
- Clare Lewis, Retrouvius Architectural Reclamation & Design www.retrouvius.com

‘A brilliant colourist, at the drop of a hat she can mix a special colour for a scheme in that perfect shade which doesn’t exist in any paint card (and then repeat it if you need more!). For colour enthusiasts, to work with her is joyful and rewarding, every colour a winner!’
- Cecilia Willis, Cecilia Willis Ceramics ceciliawillis.wixsite.com

*Please note, whilst our lime wash and eco emulsions are 100% environmentally friendly, a selection of our paints (for practicality) are not plastic free but do have very low voc counts. We are extremely environmentally and sustainability conscious and strive to be as eco-friendly as possible. We are happy to answer any queries you may have on this matter.
