‘Sad colours’ were well understood and well used back in the C17th. They were actually rather beautiful nuanced tones of a range of shades; to quieten them down and settle them into interiors created with polished materials and dyed fabrics. It was a sophisticated response to decorating hierarchy and as such is as useful today – but could we call this subtle grey green Sad Stone? Of course not these days, so we have called it Gladstone!
‘My father warned me away from using Natural Paints, as he felt they were unreliable (he was a Painter and Decorator 20 yrs ago!). However when I started to paint the emulsion on I realised he was wrong and so got him in to have a go too! He was really pleasantly surprised, and agreed that it went on easily and evenly and produced a lovely colour. The best thing for me was that I had people stopping in the room the night after, and they had no idea it was freshly painted – not a hint of a smell.’
