For our palette of matt paints, we have created three families of three colours, which you can combine as you wish, and inspired by the artistic movements and most influential figures of this period. Realists, Modernists, Dadaists, let yourself be captivated by these colours you can compose yourself!
The Socialite Family and Mériguet-Carrère Paris, a collaboration that celebrates colour and contrast
Since the 1960s, Mériguet-Carrère Paris has been offering unique ranges of paints that draw upon their inherited expertise in the traditional skills of the seventeenth century. Original colours of high-quality composition, developed in compliance with the most demanding environmental standards, and which guarantee excellent covering power for ease of application and top-quality finishes.
Born from a shared desire to blend our two worlds and the excitement of creating new grounds for expression, our two companies have joined forces to devise a limited palette and identity that tells a story. It's a story about three families of colours with evocative names - Realists - Dadaists - Modernists - each composed of three shades that sit alongside each other perfectly. A ready-made solution, to seize upon, or to experiment with on your own. And complemented by a textured paper with a roughcast effect that adds even more interest to your walls.
The Realists, the elegance of glowing, enveloping colours
The Socialite Family was keen not just to offer you a range of colours, designed in collaboration with the Parisian brand to help you decorate your home, but also to advise you on colour combinations. Realists, Dadaists and Modernists: each of these colour families is composed of three matt paints named after the artists and designers who left their mark on this period. An association between colour and creativity, emanating from the vision of the founder and artistic director of our brand, Constance Gennari.
Some will be seduced by the Realist family. A palette of glowing, enveloping colours that brings a touch of elegance to your home.
- Alain (Richard) ochre. A glowing, retro hue, reminiscent of the American designer's wooden chests of drawers. Simple, elegant furniture with an Italian feel that we interpret with this colour!
- Pierre (Paulin) intense green. This refined, urban colour reminds us of this French furniture designer's round and generous shapes - very 1970s.
- Florence (Knoll) chalk white. A pale shade which evokes the restrained yet radical work of this American architect and designer, a lover of natural materials, such as veined marble. Graceful, discreet and suitable for all interiors.
In our collection, the part played by the materials is as important as the colours, and we have designed a textured paper that you can paint as you please, to add a 1970s feel to your interior. To guide you throughout this transformation, our colour chart (designed by family) will inspire you and help you visualize your project more clearly.
Our paints have been designed to ensure easy application while maintaining superior quality. Before starting work on your creation, first, apply a tinted universal acrylic undercoat (if necessary) and allow the paint to dry for five to six hours between coats. Don't hesitate to "top up" each paint application sufficiently to achieve good coverage. Be sure to mix the paint thoroughly to ensure the uniformity of the colour. For best results, use the recommended micro-fibre rollers. You will be able to cover a surface of 15 to 18 square metres in two coats depending on the absorbency of the surface.
