Little Greene launches new ‘Colours of England’ paint chart for 2017

By

As a colour lover, I am excited to tell you that Little Greene have launched a new ‘Colours of England’ paint chart for 2017. The collection seamlessly fuses a mix of heritage and contemporary paint shades, with stunning results. The styling, photography and Art Direction of the following images are particularly striking and so congtaulations to the creative team, this is styling at it’s best.  Each set-up presents unique combinations, some of which are harmonious and others contrasting.

The updated palette is extensive. It comprises 184 shades: 170 individual colours 14 of which are repeated in varying strengths as ‘Colour Scales’. The card spans over 300 years of historic interior design and includes many authentic 18th, 19th and 20th century shades, which are denoted by red icons identifying the era of their provenance. These archive colours sit harmoniously alongside contemporary shades conceived to meet the requirements of 21st century living. As a result, the card, whilst duly respectful of period architecture, is also completely in tune with modern life and today’s interior design aesthetics.

The colour offer has been carefully refined to reflect current trends without compromising the integrity of Little Greene’s signature palette. In the words of Ruth Mottershead, Marketing Director: “Confident colour is absolutely central to Little Greene, and the updated paint chart reinforces this! The Colours of England card has been designed to meet a growing appetite for timeless colour that’s both easy to choose and a pleasure to live with, whilst much of the neutral space is occupied by the increased ‘Colour Scales’ offer”.

Ruth Mottershead continues: “The neutral trend for 2017 continues away from cream and beige towards grey tones so, to complement the new collection, we have retained the ever popular separate ‘Grey’ colour card. Offering a total spectrum of greys for all applications, we firmly believe ‘Grey’ is here to stay, due to its universal appeal and very useable shades.”

Little Greene paints are available nationally and internationally, through a network of distributors. They can also be bought via telephone order or online and through the Marylebone Showroom on 020 7935 8844.

  • What a gorgeous array of colours. All perfect for creating a cosy, charming english house feel. Whether it’s just for a feature wall or an entire room colour, it’s important to take the time to find the right colour scheme for a room that suits your style. Certainly, the benefit of these types of colours is that they provide a soothing and inviting feeling, being in the green and blue hues.

  • Thanks Jane, such a pretty selection of colours aren’t they. I love the greens and pinks.
