About us

London's first environmentally friendly decorating company with its own range of fine eco paints

We are a bespoke decorating service established in 2007, described by the Daily Express as a "firm that defines a new species of tradesperson."  A member of the Guild of Master Craftsmen and Which? trusted trader, we also have our own brand of odourless, non-toxic designer paint which is available for you to buy from our showroom in South West London or via this site.

"I don't expect people to come to us simply because we are environmentally-friendly, but because we offer great colours, great paint and great painters" 

Phil Robinson, Founder

Paint The Town Green is run by experienced London-based decorator and project manager Phil Robinson. He has spent the last 20 years working on projects of all shapes and sizes in and around London, for both private and corporate clients.

Phil started Paint the Town Green soon after becoming a parent. He became aware of the potential harmful impact the paint he was using had on him and his team, his clients, their families and the environment.

The more he looked into it, the more he realized that conventional paints release toxic fumes into people’s houses. He discovered that many of these fumes have been proven to be carcinogenic, cause breathing difficulties and provoke allergic reactions. Not to mention the huge amount of waste caused when non-environmentally friendly paints are produced. *

In the early days Phil spent some time working for Sarah Beeny. Now he and his team frequently work with some of London's finest interior designers.

Paint the Town Green's clients include: Conran's The Shop At Bluebird on The King's Road Chelsea, Marc Jacobs's store in Mayfair, Damien Hirst's London Gallery and Phil Spencer's company Garrington's.

The Company has featured in national and local press, including House & Garden magazine, Country House & Interiors, Angels & Urchins and is a Which? trusted trader.


In addition to decorating, Paint The Town Green is also able to offer an excellent refurbishment service. From new bathrooms and bespoke carpentry (wardrobes etc.) to new lighting layouts and re-plastering, all your requirements can be taken care of.
