Willsmere Paint Colours

The Willsmere colours are replicas of the colours Willsmere was first painted when it was opened. Willys Keeble, the original heritage architect in the 1990s, has told us stories of painstakingly scraping off many centuries of paint to get to the original colours when she was determining the colour scheme.

Elements that are in dark red /maroon are orginal, or reproductions of the original features. Items in olive or pale green designate features that were added during the conversion to apartments.

Here are the definitions for each colour.Colour Schedule
