  • Clare Elise Interiors - A Neutral Scheme


    Clare Elise Interiors created a beautiful neutral scheme which flows from kitchen to living space using 'Shallows' and 'Inox.'


    Shallows contains the deftest touch of pigment which gives it a cool, understated depth.

    This was combined with a seating area painted with the beautiful light, silver grey, 'Inox.'


    They also created some bespoke joinery wardrobes finished in 'Scree,' a shade with humble provenance; the use of this grey was widespread in the nineteenth century as a cheap mix of leftover paint colours – an early example of paint recycling.

  • Secret Linen Store - Little Greene


    The Secret Linen Store used a selection of Little Greene shades for their latest photoshoot.

    Hicks' Blue

    David Hicks, one of the most important designers of the 60s and 70s, used powerful colours in combination to dramatic effect. Besides domestic projects for English aristocracy, Hicks also worked on many commercial projects and used 'Hicks' Blue' in the restaurant at the top of the London Telecom Tower in 1962.

    Sage Green

    'Sage Green' was one of the colours enjoyed by the Victorians "on account of their repose to the sight, and their solid and quiet tone."

    French Grey

    Usually mixed with a little blue and a red, when a "middle tint" was required, French Grey was far from cheap to produce, it provides the perfect background for blue accessories.

    The gallery selected a neutral backdrop for the pieces using Little Greene's 'Shirting,' a pure white based on natural minerals without optical brightener- a classic heritage white.

    The exhibition will run from 30 September 2017 – 25 February 2018.

  • Paint It Pink This October



    For the seventh year running, the Little Greene Paint Company has joined forces with national charity, Breast Cancer Haven, to promote and support Breast Cancer Awareness month.

    For the whole of October 2017, Little Greene customers will be actively helping to support people with breast cancer. We've pledged that 15p from every tin of paint and roll of wallpaper sold via our 270 UK-wide stockists, or through our website, will be donated directly to Breast Cancer Haven.

    Managing Director David Mottershead confirms: “What better way to support a charity and raise awareness than to pick a shade of pink to brighten up your home? Last year our loyal customers raised just over £12,000 for the charity – and I’m completely confident that we’ll beat that record total this year. Pink is such a joyous colour that imbues the home with a sense of life and wellbeing – the same focus that Breast Cancer Haven adopts to help improve the quality of life those affected by cancer. Breast Cancer Haven provides free personalised care and support for patients nationally and the funds Little Greene helps raise make a significant difference.”

    Pamela Healy OBE, Breast Cancer Haven’s Chief Executive adds: “This is the seventh time we have worked with Little Greene and we are thrilled that the company has once again chosen us as the charity to benefit from its support during Breast Cancer Awareness month. We receive no Government funding, so every penny raised is hard won and spent wisely on life-changing and life-affirming services. Pink is the colour of the moment, so update your home all
    the while knowing that you’re supporting a fantastic charity. Paint it pink in October!”
