‘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!
"I will never use anything except Edward Bulmer paint again, I have to say. Plus I have no idea why the decorator forums made it sound so difficult! If it's within my capabilities, it's within anyone's!"
