As you know I have just painted a wall in bedroom green but this was a long time in the making. We did our en suite bathroom up two years ago and I was desperate to paint it green.
Mind you, even Farrow & Ball suggest using it outside where it will appear greener – it can tend towards black indoors. Spruce (for short) is what you would get if Farrow & Ball’s Down Pipe went green, if that makes sense. My bathroom is painted Down Pipe and every time I post it on instagram I am asked what shade of green it is. When I wanted dark green for the bathroom two years ago it was as simple as no I didn’t.
In a south-facing room you might want to avoid the bright greens that have a lot of yellow as that will ramp up in the golden light of the sun. Little Greene has been working with The National Trust to produce this themed card – the latest in its series which includes grey, pink and blue.
They took their inspiration from Beatrix Potter’s house in the Lake District and George Bernard Shaw’s writing hut – essentially a shed that revolved to catch the sun.
