If you have been watching me painting my home over the last year you know I have used lots of paint from the Gray colour card collection by Little Greene throughout my home. I mostly used Tusk and in the living I used Mortar, as you can see in the picture above. Also really curious to try out one of my other first choices: Limestone. Earlier I also wrote about the process of choosing colours for my home: A new colour moodboard for my home including a new Pinterest board filled with inspiration and ideas for a new colour scheme: New Colours | New home
Colours with a story
“Stone” brings together a harmonious palette of colours, collected from an eclectic mix of grand and modest sources; from striking walls of prestigious entertainment halls to delicate tones of more modest rooms, to colours of decorative elements such as woodwork, plasterwork, stonework, upholstery, ceramics and wall coverings.
Eleven of the new colours in the Stone collection are the result of Little Greene’s ongoing color research in the portfolio of National Trust properties. With this, the cataloging of original colours from important periods of interior design has continued. Not only paint colours have been explored, but also architectural elements, tapestries and even stone. I really love the historical aspect when it comes to the launch of a new colour card.
This capsule collection of warm neutrals offers a welcome turnaround after the ever-popular decade of gray! The transition to soft, more natural colours, often referred to as the “new neutrals,” makes earthy, stony hues increasingly popular, offering a soothing alternative to cooler choices. The Stone colours can be applied in all areas of the home and add warmth, calm and simplicity as well as a sophisticated complementary decor for a variety of fabrics, wall coverings and furniture.
