Drab referred originally to an un-dyed cloth (from the French drap) and its use in colour terminology came to mean a lightish brown. C18th century accounts refer to drab green and we have taken this idea to mix a beautiful brown green in defiance of its name. I have seen this colour used by clients to create really grown up rooms with depth and self-assurance. Early on it was used as an all-over colour for panelling and just as then it can be a successful tone for a scheme that treats walls and trim as the same.
"Each colour feels so carefully considered and they have a beautiful finish on the wall. We love to use colours that are less ’true’ as they work so well throughout the year, changing in tone with the seasons. It was this that drew us to Drab green."
