We’re admiring a luxe line of 84 exterior paint colors from London-based Marston-Langinger, a manufacturer of bespoke conservatories, greenhouses, and (should you need something a bit more specialized) orangeries.

Formulated to look their best outdoors, the Exterior Eggshell colors have been mixed to reflect sunlight without glare. “Exterior Eggshell possesses such remarkable chroma (color intensity) that it appears to radiate color, and the range of tones you will see in different lights is positively beguiling,” Marston-Langinger promises.

Which of the 84 colors would you like for your front door?

Above: Marston-Langinger’s 84 colors of Exterior Eggshell paints are available in three sizes–1-liter, 2.5-liter, and 5-liter cans–at prices that range from £25 to £89.50 (£71.60 exclusive of VAT).

Above: A facade and door painted in Charlbury with window trim painted in Parchment. Sample pots are £5 apiece from Marston-Langinger.

Above: A facade and window trim painted in Granite; £5 for a sample pot from Marston-Langinger.

Above: Marston-Langinger’s line of 84 paint colors also is available in two interior finishes, Interior Eggshell and Chalky Interior Matt (shown).
