September 2023 sees the launch of Little Greene’s ‘Sweet Treats’, a curated collection of warm, neutral shades of honey, caramel and chocolate, each colour inspired by delicious desserts and some of the worlds most tasteful sweet treats. Playful, mouth-watering names including ‘Madeleine’, ‘Galette’, ‘Affogato’, ‘Muscovado’ and ‘Ganache’ bring these enticing colours to life.
This palette of nine versatile colours will bring warmth and comfort, creating cosy enveloping interiors that appeal to all the senses. The range includes time-honoured shades, accurately recreated from historic walls, woodwork and furnishings, at a number of places cared for by the National Trust, for future generations to enjoy.
Perfect for use in ‘all-over’ schemes in both contemporary or traditional settings, these delightful neutral hues work really well in a colour drenched room.
Juxtapose them with deeper browns and blacks to create a captivating, sophisticated interior. Soft, warmer whites will elegantly complement all these shades to maintain a more traditional feel, and they will equally support an accent of a brighter, contrasting highlight for a more dynamic look.
Alongside the wonderfully rich Little Greene favourite ‘Chocolate Colour’, tempting new shades include sophisticated golds such as ‘Madeleine’ and ‘Bombolone’, on trend caramels ‘Galette’ and 'Affogato’, soft muted pinks ‘Split Pink’ and ‘Mochi’, the terracotta-toned indulgent ‘Muscovado’ and rich chocolate ‘Ganache’.
Each shade is available in the full range of Little Greene finishes; there’s one that’s suitable for almost every surface inside or outside your home.
Ruth Mottershead, Creative Director, comments, “Earthy shades, particularly browns have historically been used for their practicality, and are often dismissed as being dated or dull. However, rich warm colours based on umber and ochre deliver cocooning, restful and charming spaces. Deeper, richer caramels are perfect for creating enticing and sumptuous spaces, whilst soft golds provide comfort and reflect the desire to create warmth within our homes.
We have had a lot of fun developing this capsule collection. The ‘Sweet Treats’ palette aims to challenge the perception that browns are outdated and unusable, providing delicious hues that bring elegance and sophistication to any interior. If these tasty tones aren’t enough to indulge your senses, we have created a series of tempting recipes celebrating each colour too.”
