Northcote 65 - Our Flagship Northcote Road Store Paint
To celebrate the opening of our Northcote Road store, we’ve designed a bespoke paint colour: Northcote 65. Inspired by our local Clapham and Battersea community’s warm and welcoming spirit, this muted, dusky pink pays homage to some of the area’s most iconic architecture. Read on to learn about what inspired us to create this bespoke Lick shade.
What was the inspiration for Northcote 65?
When it came to creating a bespoke colour for our store, we took inspiration from Northcote Road’s thriving community and its local architecture. Not only is pink one of Clapham and Battersea's best-selling paint colours, but from Battersea Power Station to the Arding & Hobbs department store, the area boasts a number of iconic buildings that are some of London’s best examples of Art Deco architecture. In fact, the soft pink pastel shades used in the control room of Battersea Power Station played their part in influencing Northcote 65.
The colour psychology behind Northcote 65
This bespoke shade was developed to reflect our local community's warm and welcoming spirit and to bring a sense of comfort into your home. Thanks to colour psychology, we know that different colours affect us in different ways. “Pink is one of those colours that will instantly make your shoulders drop and help you feel more relaxed”, says Tash, our Director of Interior Design. The colour of cuddles, it's friendly, approachable, and instantly comforting. The perfect colour to welcome people into our store with open arms.
Pink is one of those colours that will instantly make your shoulders drop and help you feel more relaxed.
From fuschias to chalky clays, pink is a colour stemming from nature. When it came to developing the perfect pink for our store, we wanted to create a soothing shade that combined blush and earth tones. Enter: Northcote 65. A warm, earthy pink with grounding grey undertones, this bespoke colour is guaranteed to help you to unwind.
