Jarvis specifies Earthborn paints

A luxury housing development in the Weald of Kent represents its builders’ deepening commitment to sustainability.

Jarvis Homes, a family company for more than 250 years, is on a mission to improve the sustainability of its building processes so specified Earthborn breathable paints at Chequers Green, a development of four and five bedroom detached houses near Ashford.

Russell Jarvis, company director, said

“We switched to Earthborn as part of a drive to make our houses healthier to live in and more environmentally friendly. Their paints do just that because they are made without oils or acrylics, which means they are virtually VOC free and do not give off any harmful emissions. It enables newly decorated rooms to be occupied quickly because there is no worry about emissions or odours.”

“At Chequers Green we opted for Earthborn Emulsion for all walls and ceilings, applying it onto gypsum plaster, and we used Eggshell for the woodwork.”

Earthborn Lifestyle Emulsion has a hardwearing, classic low sheen finish. Being durable and washable, it is perfect for busier areas in the home.

Earthborn Eggshell is water based and dries quickly to an attractive silk sheen, providing durability, washability and scuff resistance.

Both products are available in Earthborn’s signature colour palette of 72 colours plus white and the 12 Modern Country Colours developed in partnership with Country Homes & Interiors.
