The Secret Linen Store used a selection of Little Greene shades for their latest photoshoot.
David Hicks, one of the most important designers of the 60s and 70s, used powerful colours in combination to dramatic effect. Besides domestic projects for English aristocracy, Hicks also worked on many commercial projects and used 'Hicks' Blue' in the restaurant at the top of the London Telecom Tower in 1962.
'Sage Green' was one of the colours enjoyed by the Victorians "on account of their repose to the sight, and their solid and quiet tone."
Usually mixed with a little blue and a red, when a "middle tint" was required, French Grey was far from cheap to produce, it provides the perfect background for blue accessories.
