‘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! Glad to also offer tonal harmony in all our colours, from ultramodern interiors to period properties – we produce natural paint which is breathable and kind to nature.
A big thanks to the team at Edward Bulmer paints for being so nice. Fast becoming the best supplier in the UK. Little Greene and Mylands could learn a lot from this company.
