Drab referred to an un-dyed cloth (the French drap) and its use in colour terminology came to mean a lightish brown. C18th 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. Great as an all-over colour for wooden panelling. Drab Green is a natural paint, made from natural raw materials and so breathable and the smarter choice of paint for period properties. Never drab, always green, in every way.
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.
