‘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!
"There are three reasons I chose Edward Bulmer Natural Paint. First and foremost the fantastic range of colours, from the historically authentic to the more contemporary, meant that there was something fitting for every room in my cottage. Secondly, the paint’s true 'green' credentials were important and led onto the third benefit that painters like working with it."
