Product Details



Our Polar bear selfie paint is a gorgeous off-white colour. It’s perfect for creating an industrial-inspired interior. Specifically chosen to accentuate vintage, industrial and minimalist themes, our stunning capsule interior wall, ceiling & wood paints are the result of a collaboration with Hicks & Weatherburn Limited, Yorkshire’s longest standing paint manufacturer. Check out our paint like a pro blog for more information on paint finishes and best practice when it comes to updating your interiors.

We love this subtle light grey paint in any interior, but especially like grey paint colours for living rooms where they can really be appreciated. Polar bear selfie is perfect for use in rooms where you want to create a minimalist vibe, but don’t want a bright white finish. Did you know that a polar bear’s fur is not actually white? It’s translucent, which means that these beautiful mammals adapt to their natural environment – much like this paint. Polar bear selfie will work with an array of colours. Choose monochromatic tones and accessories to add texture to your rooms, or experiment with more natural materials, like reclaimed wood and exposed brick to create a more rugged finish. Add some greenery with plants and succulents to emphasise the natural Scandi vibe.

Complete the look with our complementing wood paints in chalky matt or nearly matt finishes.

  • We recommend preparing surfaces with a good quality wall and ceiling primer or undercoat to give a more even finish and better depth of colour to your final coat
  • Stir paint thoroughly before use
  • For best finish apply two coats – darker and bright colours may require three
  • Leave 12 hours between coats
  • When you’ve chosen your colour, it’s best to order it all in one go as colours can vary slightly from batch to batch
  • Not all monitors display colours the same, therefore we recommend that you order a sample pot to make sure this is the right colour for you.
