New colour chart from Little Greene

Little Greene’s has introduced its new colour card. 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.

The colour offer has been carefully refined to reflect current trends without compromising Little Greene’s signature palette, says the company.

The 2017 colour card contains seven new colours, some from the Little Greene archive, (‘Mid Azure Green’, ‘Grey Stone’, ‘Pale Lupin’, ‘Middle Buff’, ‘Light Gold’ and ‘Pleat’), and a new stand-alone shade ‘Mortlake Yellow’.

In addition 22 key colours will be imported from the recent Little Greene capsule collections of ‘Pink’ and ‘Blue’. Two new families of diluted colours, ‘Aquamarine’ and ‘Dorchester Pink’, augment the ‘Colour Scales’ palette.

The popular separate ‘Grey’ colour card has been retained.

The new user-friendly colour chart is subtly arranged into two sections, one featuring more muted shades, the other stronger accent tones. A demonstration of the practicality of the colour card is its ‘flying chips’ feature. By folding the card away from the chip, the colour can be placed next to another shade or finish in the home , be it paint, wallpaper, fabric, wood, tile or stone. Made from Little Greene’s Absolute Matt Emulsion, the flying chips are accurate representations of both colour and the matt, chalky finish for which Little Greene is known.

All shades on the ‘Colours of England’ colour card are available in the full range of paint finishes: traditional and modern, interior and exterior.

2017 also sees the introduction of another finish called Flat Oil Eggshell, which is flatter than a regular eggshell having just a 10% sheen level, making it a good choice to use with Little Greene’s flat emulsion paints.
