R9 Colour Rundown: No.10 Black

There are few front doors as famous globally as the commanding black door that protects No.10 Downing Street – the home of Prime Minister Theresa May.

It may surprise you to hear that during the premiership of Herbert Asquith in the early part of the 20th Century, the door was actually painted dark green; doesn’t seem right does it! It wasn’t until the end of his term in 1916 that the door was changed from dark green to its much celebrated deep black colour.

And it’s the colour of that notorious front door that provided the inspiration for our No.10 Black finish.

No.10 Black is the new Black – Perfect for a modern edge or preserving the authentic character of your property.

There’s something very powerful, imposing and authoritative about the colour black, which highlights why it is used at government HQ.

Though obviously not possessing the vibrancy of a Chartwell Green, No.10 Black does offer timelessness like no other colour and just oozes with class.

It says to people that you’re incredibly protective of where you live and someone who keeps their home firmly in order.

Don’t forget that you can combine No.10 Black with any other colour from our Graduate Collection when you choose a dual finish.

Contemplate having a No.10 Black finish externally with a Clotted Cream interior to surprise and impress guests.
