HIPPO POTTO NOT A MOUSE
Our favourite! Hippo Potto Not a Mouse is a mid grey paint that’s the perfect backdrop to any accent colour. Grey really does stand the test of time so don’t worry about having to update it any time soon. Unless of course you’re just way too temped by the rest of our capsule paint collection…
Hippo Potto Not a Mouse may be a bit of a mouthful, but it sure is fun to say! This mid-grey colour evokes visions of hippos playing in the African mud, hence the name. It has a subtle brown undertone that is perfect when it’s complemented by some rustic materials to create a deliciously inviting space. Coordinate with exposed brick and reclaimed wood for a look that’s almost as rugged as a mud-caked hippopotamus.
We also love this paint colour alongside whitewashed wooden floors and exposed brick walls. Add texture with grey furnishings, rugged metallic accents like our gorgeous knobs and handles, and a dash of greenery from plants and succulents. If you’re not particularly green-fingered then no fear, have a look at our incredibly realistic range of faux plants. For a really sleek look, and the icing on the cake, use our eggshell finish paint so you can paint your doors and skirting boards too. Perfection.
Hippo Potto Not a Mouse paint is the perfect choice for transforming your interiors into uber-cool spaces, be it ultra-contemporary or classically stylish. Check out our paint like a pro blog for more information on paint finishes and best practice when it comes to updating your interiors.
Our gorgeous paints have been carefully selected through a collaboration with Vintro, Yorkshire’s finest paint manufacturer. We wanted a capsule collection of paints that enhanced our passion for design and company ethos, and we think this range does just that.
