Little Greene historic paints have been developed in association with English Heritage and are available in a wide range of period colours.
The appearance of paint colours vary according to the adjacent colours in the room and the lighting conditions.
To prove your choice we recommend you apply a sample pot of colour to your room area and observe the changing light conditions throughout the day - apart from the effects of electric lighting, natural sunlight can change dramatically between early morning and sunset.
Despite the fact that we use many colours to decorate our personal environments, the vast majority of colours used are based on the naturally occurring minerals of iron and the transition metals. These compound colours are found in nature and have been used for centuries.
