Little Greene Paint unveils a new colour palette

9th Oct 2018

After nine months in the making, Little Greene has launched their stunning ‘green’ collection. 31 beautiful
greens make up their latest colour palette and all are waiting to be discovered by you in the BAGNODESIGN Redbrick showroom.

The creation of twenty of the thirty-one colour’s, comes from the in-depth research project with the National Trust. Little Greene visited the homes and gardens within the National Trust in England, Wales and Northern Ireland to create and reawaken many historical and original gems of colour, bringing them back to life and into the 21st century.

The revival sees some wonderful stories forming many shades of green. From rich emeralds of the 19th
Century, to deep Art Deco blue hues and even paler, neutral tones from era’s gone by.

Let us reveal to you just a few:
Ambleside’ uses the colour origionally found in Beatrix’s Potters bedroom, a dark green with muted blue
undertone. Or you could paint your gate the same shade as Beatrix Potter’s; with the Little Greene Paint
colour of the year, ‘Sage & Onions’ – an anecdote to a scene in the Tale of Jemima Puddleduck. How
Nostalgic! Both shades look stunning with Brushed Nickel and dark woods for kitchens and bathrooms.

Tea with Florence’ relates to the tea room Florence Nightingale frequented at Claydon House. Which is also
believed to be the finest surviving example of Chinoiserie in Britain – a perfect shade for a hint to the east with a strong blue undertone. BAGNODESIGN recommends pairing this with their new ‘Zanzibar’ finish, a soft
brushed brass finish for modern opulence.

Edith’s Eye’ is a yellow-green that was playfully - and somewhat daringly - paired with a deep pink in the
drawing room of Mount Stewart, by the eccentric Lady Edith. A 30’s recreation with recommended
compliemtary paint colour’s of; ‘Leather’ - a bold pink and ‘Invisible Green’ - one of the richest, darkest shades of green.

With greens and blues emitting the colours of nature in a time when we often have little opportunity to enjoy
the outdoors, there is no wonder these tones are growing ever more popular. Many manufacturers are even
naming similar tones their ‘Colour of the Year’.

Designing with green within interiors is incredibly versatile; whether it be an accent colour on a cushion or a bold colour on every wall in the room, the choices are endless. BAGNODESIGN’s Colour consultants are happy to help you discover your dream scheme with green.
