‘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!
“When we moved into Hopetoun we were really keen to find colours that worked for our young family and the house. Your colours did this well and the paint was especially suitable as it is so breathable. The decorators loved the paint and said it was the best to apply they had used and no horrid paint smell was a real bonus for us! We have had to repaint all the rooms where we didn't use your paints but none of the rooms where we used them.”
