  • Coming Soon - The New 'Colours of England' Colourcard

    After much anticipation, our revived and revitalised colour card has been unveiled...

    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 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 one of this year’s most on-trend tones.

    The new card benefits from a darker background which, combined with the ingenious ‘chips’, makes it even easier to visualise colours away from a bright white background. Comparisons are also easier to make when choosing between whites such as ‘Shirting’ and ‘Loft White’ in the new layout.

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

    The new 'Colours of England' card will be available to order from May 22nd 2017.

  • Breast Cancer Awareness Month With The Haven...

     

    Paradise - Pink Breast Cancer Awareness Month With The Haven

    In October 2016, we participated in Breast Cancer Awareness month for the sixth year, raising as much as possible for Breast Cancer Haven, a charity providing support for those affected by breast cancer.

    Throughout the month, we donated 15p from every tin of paint and roll of wallpaper sold to the charity.

    To commemorate the event, we launched our latest ‘Pink’ collection alongside a limited edition colourway of our Paradise wallpaper design, which was specially recoloured in a delicate rose hue.

    Our stockists produced imaginative, beautiful pink window displays and wore pink aprons to raise awareness and as much money as possible for Breast Cancer Haven.

    With the help of our stockists, we have raised over £12,000 for the cause. This will help Breast Cancer Haven to offer free emotional, physical and practical support to anyone affected by breast cancer.

    We would like to thank all our stockists for their efforts and all their help in creating another successful Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
