English Heritage Paint - Historic Paint & Period Paint | Little Greene
English Heritage exists to protect and promote England’s spectacular historic environment and ensure that its past is researched and understood. By employing some of the country’s best architects, archaeologists and historians, they aim to help people understand and appreciate why the historic buildings and landscapes around them matter.
English Heritage has over 400 sites in its care which are open to the public, including historic buildings, monuments, battlefields, parks and gardens and archaeological remains. In addition English Heritage has an advisory role to the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport in the listing of buildings in England.
The English Heritage Colours in the Little Greene paint collections are the result of combined research to discover the true historical colours used over several key periods in historic decoration from early Georgian right up to the 1970s. They are clearly marked on the colour card and there is a key to the period from which they hail.
As a natural extension of the partnership, Little Greene were invited to explore the extensive English Heritage wallpaper archive, now housed at Wrest Park in Bedfordshire. The result is several stunning wallpaper collections based on original documents discovered during the protection and restorations of some of England’s finest historic properties.
Stunning flocks, sophisticated prints and use of vivid colours and metallic finishes bring the archive to life for the 21st Century, whilst complementary paint shades allow you to create a beautiful cohesive result.
A contribution from every sale of paint and wallpaper goes towards English Heritage’s work in preserving our ancient buildings and landscapes for future generations.
