  • Little Greene at Marylebone Interiors Day 2017

    On Saturday 20th May, our London showroom team took part in the annual Marylebone Interiors Day event, a showcase of interior brands across the village.

    Guest artist Anna Proctor hosted informal workshops in the showroom using the Little Greene palette. Anna showcased her trademark technique of creating bespoke mural designs on a mixture of objects including skateboards and guitars.


    In the lead up to the event we were also invited to present our ‘Little Greene Award’ for a stand-out graduate on the Interior Design programme at Regent’s University.

    After reviewing the work, we awarded the title to Emma Macleod. Her project caught our attention with her innovative solution for an alternative water birthing experience in London.

    After receiving the award, Emma said, “I am very honoured to have received the Little Greene Award at the Regent’s University London graduate exhibition.  It is amazing to have been recognised for my final project by such an innovative company as Little Greene.

    The Interior Design programme at Regent’s has exposed me to such incredible industry opportunities and has created the most authentic, 'real’ experience throughout the degree.  With my final project, I have been fortunate enough to be able to delve into unchartered territory by researching and creating a solution for an alternative water birthing experience in London.  I hoped to create an environment where mothers are able to give birth in a comforting yet raw interior space.

    By incorporating traditional Japanese philosophical concepts of Wabi Sabi and Mono No Aware, I aimed to reintroduce the beauty of imperfection and impermanence to a contemporary western society.  Along with these techniques, a brutalist and simplistic approach to interior architecture allowed the water and natural elements to shine throughout.”

    Our Showroom Manager Robert also delivered an insightful talk at the Regent’s University during the day, featuring The Emotional Journey of Colour’ & ‘How To Use Little Greene Colours’.

  • 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.
