Fifty (Well Almost) Shades of Green Paint

In fact there are 31 beautiful green paint shades in the Little Greene recent collaboration with the National Trust. A collaboration that is a result of an extensive paint research project that has been undertaken in National Trust houses and gardens throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland. In fact a quest to find original colours, and to tell the stories of the people who first enjoyed them. Wouldn’t I have liked to have been involved in that! Next time guys!! Inspiration was drawn from sources as diverse as Beatrix Potter’s Cumbrian farmhouse, George Bernard Shaw’s revolving writing hut and even mythical birds featured on the wallpaper hung by Chippendale at Nostell Priory. And the result is a new colourcard featuring some intriguing stories, and a gamut of glorious greens in a comprehensive array of hues.

 In true Little Greene fashion, the card and its contents are designed to be easy to use and choose from. Divided into five columns, the collection is loosely arranged to represent each of the key green families: grey greens, neutral greens, yellow greens, blue greens and turquoise greens.

Clare Brown, Head of Brand Licensing for the National Trust, adds: “We are delighted with the association with Little Greene, which will help everyone to bring the nation’s heritage into their own homes. The two organisations have a real synergy, with conservation, restoration and reinvention at their core. The choice of green for the first collaboration is an inspired one: it is the colour of the National Trust and conjures up images of the expanse of gardens and countryside that we look after for the nation to enjoy.”

A contribution from the sale of every can of Little Greene paint will be made in support of the National Trust’s conservation work, to ensure the nation’s historic houses, gardens and open spaces can be enjoyed for generations to come. In addition, Little Greene will be supporting the National Trust’s conservation and restoration programme by donating paints to bring colour and life back to some of the UK’s most loved properties.

Little Greene paint is available nationally and internationally through a network of distributors, as well as via email and phone order.

The Green Colourcard will be launched in September 2018 at Decorex.
