We will confirm our acceptance to you by sending you an email that confirms that the Products have been dispatched (Dispatch Confirmation).

The images of the Products on the website are for illustrative purposes only. We have made every effort to display the colours of the Products as accurately as electronic media will allow. However, we cannot guarantee an exact colour match of the on-screen colour to the colours of the actual Products, and the colours contained on the site should not be relied on as such. Colours may vary depending on your screen settings and resolution. We recommend that you use a colour sample on the actual surface to be painted before undertaking your decoration. This will give you a stronger indication of the appearance of the actual colour, which can be affected by the substrate and the texture of the surface, or by soft furnishings and the shape, size and lighting of the room. Please note that colour samples indicate the colour of the product only, and are not representative of the quality or sheen of the eventual product purchased. We highly recommend you buy the correct quantity required for your decorating project in a single transaction, as all our paints are all made to order, this will ensure you receive the same production batch. As with any product that is made to order and includes natural ingredients, there can be small batch to batch variances that are within our quality control tolerance. If you do purchase the same colour and finish at different times, we strongly recommend you mix the paint together to ensure you achieve a uniform finish. If you are painting the same colour over an old paint job we cannot guarantee that the second batch will achieve the same colour and finish due to a number of variables, from batch variation, to application thickness, condition of the substrate and previous paint job. All product usage guidance is provided on the back of the tin. The packaging of the Products may vary from that shown on images on the site. All Products on our site are subject to availability. We will inform you by email as soon as possible if the Products ordered are not available and we will not be able process any orders. If you have already paid for the Product, we will refund you as soon as reasonably possible. For Digital Services products such as Colour Consultations - all expert advice and recommendations on colour and paint products are provided in the best faith by qualified professionals. In most cases we are reliant on information provided - and not on first-party information we gather from a home visit for example - so are not responsible for matters arising from missing information, substrate issues, or matters of personal taste.
