Little Greene’s Retrospectives Paint Collection

Little Greene’s latest paint collection is once again a collaboration with English Heritage, this time comprising of 32 colours from the 1960s and 70s. Picking up where the brand’s previous collection – Colours of England – left off, these bold and confident shades are the perfect way to add interest to your interiors this season. Inspired by the changing face of Britain in the late 20th Century; a time when the country was exposed to more external influences than ever before, the hues are influenced by: the pop generation, immigration from the Indian subcontinent and the West Indies with all the vibrancy and vitality of their bright colours, and the expansion of air travel that brought increased access to holidays abroad. My favourite colours from the collection are seen in the kitchen space (above), which combines Lemon Mivvi, Cupboard Green, Spearmint, Milk Thistle and Grace – perfecto! Which scheme do you like best?
