Mylands was established in 1884 in Stockwell, South London by John Myland. Originally supplying to trade only, Mylands grew from small beginnings and quickly earned a reputation amongst the most discerning and demanding clientele.

With customers in the film, theatre and television industry, Mylands specialist paints and wood finishes were used at the world renowned Pinewood Studios and even during the Second World War, to disguise London's iconic landmark bridges and buildings. Over the years, our knowledge, dedication and paint and colour expertise has awarded us many accolades but in 1985, we were given the ultimate seal of approval — a coveted Royal Warrant.

Their long-standing association with the film, television and theatre industry has seen their paints featured in some of the world's most successful films including James Bond, Harry Potter, Pirates of the Caribbean, Les Miserables, Cinderella, Mr Selfridge, Downton Abbey and Game of Thrones amongst others.

In 2012, Mylands paints became available to consumers for the first time; Colours of London comprises 120 timeless colours, each inspired by the great Capital itself. Over four generations, they have quietly but proudly crafted quality paints and wood finishes and today are renowned for their beautiful yet durable, colour rich paints and specialist decorative coatings. Highly pigmented, with unsurpassed depth and purity, Mylands paints are expertly blended using only superior quality ingredients and naturally occuring pigment in many of our colours. Easy to use with outstanding coverage and opacity, Mylands paints are all water-based, eco-friendly formulations with low odour.
