Our Story

First let’s clear up the queries about our name. Marston and Langinger is quite a mouthful. So, let’s skip the formalities, we’re happy to be called M&L.

Marston and Langinger Paint (M&L Paints) emerged out of a deep-rooted passion for harmony. A harmony that exists at the heart of every beautiful space.

For four decades Peter and Susan Marston created sublime bespoke conservatories and ‘to die for’ garden rooms. In 2003 they began working with the finest colour chemists and technical experts to develop paints to satisfy the most meticulous designers and decorators.

Inspired by the natural world and by fine classical architecture, M&L colours have been created to enhance our lives in engaging ways. Today, M&L has been revived by a family firm sharing the same ethos for tradition and a similar passion for fine quality products. Established in 1952, Alitex is renowned for its commitment to British manufacturing and the longevity of its products.

This commitment from Alitex ensures that M&L Paint will continue to create colour and enhance emotions for years to come.
