Help Choose New Colour For Historic Property

May 17, 2022 | 0 Comments

Bermuda National Trust headquarters “Waterville”, at the Foot of the Lane, is due for painting and they are offering the public a chance to vote online to choose the new colour for the historic property.

Their website said, “Bermuda National Trust headquarters “Waterville”, at the Foot of the Lane, is due for painting and we would like your help to choose the colour.

“In 2018, a team of experts analysed the very old paint layers on some of the Trust’s historic buildings. From this research, we were able to create a palette of historic colours, which were based on organic materials available in the past to create different pigments. We want to choose from that palette to repaint Waterville in an authentic heritage colour.

“We’ve narrowed it down to two colours similar to those known to have been used on Waterville in the past, one more bold than the other. Sample patches have also been painted on the north side of Waterville. Should you wish to see what they look like on the building, you are most welcome to come and visit before placing your vote.

“All votes must be in by 5pm Wednesday 18 May. We are also looking for names for these colours, so please send us your suggestions for those too! For more information on the paint analysis, please visit bnt.bm.”

You can cast your vote for the new colour here.
