An Earthborn love story: Hobgoblin & Delilah

26th February 2019

Hobgoblin & Delilah… Boy meets Girl 💖

Every shade in Earthborn’s distinctive paint palette is a truly unique and colourful character. From Mister Toad and Rosie Poise to Nellie and Bo Peep, our paint colours each have their own personality! Here we introduce a daring love story between two of our favourite new shades, Delilah and Hobgoblin


Earthborn green paint colour Hobgoblin is the perfect shade to sleep and dream with. Perfect pink 'Delilah' gives a glamorous fifties nod to bathrooms.

“Delilah shimmied down the stairs. She looked good, she thought to herself, she always looked good in pink.

Ushering the waiter over, “Your finest glass of rosy bubbles!” Her favourite. She loved the fizzy, fruity feeling it gave her. It made her feel fabulous.

She smiled, Elvis was playing. With a nostalgic nod to the fifties he never ceased to remind her that she was born in the wrong era. As a totally hopeless romantic, Can’t Help Falling in Love was her all-time favourite. It reminded her of her parents dancing around the kitchen table at Christmas.

In a sea of grey suits, Delilah’s gaze wandered to a mysterious figure in a gorgeous green. Velvety eyes, she mused, the kind of eyes that pull you in and make you feel slightly off-balance… Like you’ve lost all notion of where you are and where you were going. Her cheeks flushed a warm, welcome nectar shade, ‘The bathroom’, she muttered to herself, that’s where I was going.

As she tottered across the room her mind was racing, she felt sure he was at the wrong party. She couldn’t place her finger on why but she felt confident he was like nothing she’d seen before.

She had never felt such an extraordinary appeal to someone, she wanted to turn around and wrap herself up in his soft sumptuous suit. To sleep and dream in his eyes! *She often fell into these superlatives – a true teenage drama queen.

But something felt different this time… Having always questioned the statistical probability of ‘love at first sight’, it seemed nonsensical to her and yet at once she felt charmed and rejuvenated. It was a strange sensation but she felt certain their paths would cross again, and at the same time, she felt like this day had happened somewhere before…

A soft tap on the shoulder brought her racing thoughts to a halt. “Hey”.
