Voice of Colour

Each year PPG’s Global Colour Team meet to discuss and develop future colour and design trends. Our colour stylists from around the world each specialise in different markets and collaborate to determine styles and colour trends.

PPG’s unique position as a colour leader in multiple markets allows us to observe and translate emerging global colour trends for our customers’ projects - from consumer goods to automotive colour, from residential to commercial buildings to industrial design.

NCS Colours

Johnstone’s has worked closely with Natural Colour System (NCS) for many years to bring you an extensive collection of colours.

We appreciate that using NCS colour enables project managers to collaborate using a common and recognised colour language.

The NCS is a logical colour order system based on a person’s perception of colour and is described using a specific colour code.


British Standard

The British Standard 4800 specifies 122 colours of paint for building and construction works and is an essential reference for anyone who needs a particular paint colour to use in the refurbishment of buildings, particularly at local authority level or for major works, such as office blocks, airports, schools and hospitals. This standard includes 22 additional colours that are mostly brighter to reflect the latest trends for finishes on public buildings. These paint colours are widely recognised throughout the UK and are often used to meet safety, legal or contractual requirements.

RAL Colours

The RAL colour system is the most popular Central European Colour Standard in use today and you will see the colours used in architecture, construction, industry, recreation and road safety.  

The basic collection consists of more than 200 colours and is available in both matt and gloss. Both collections contain colour samples that are used by institutions to cover a wide range of disciplines and are constantly adapted to the requirements of the industry.


Colour Matching


Johnstone’s Trade provides high performance paint in any colour. Whether it’s a lampshade or cushion, a sample of your favourite wallpaper or that favourite plant - show us the colour and we can scan and match it. Best of all, colours are available in the Johnstone’s Trade range, ensuring professional colour accuracy in high performance coatings.
