Introducing Little Greene paints

Paint colours from the Little Greene and National Trust collection

We’ve collaborated with family-run paint company, Little Greene to launch a collection of unique paint colours, inspired by the places we care for. Add a splash of colour to your home with this bold new range of paints.

Inspired by special places 

With colours ranging from a zingy lime to calming turquoise, Little Greene has taken inspiration from historic buildings to develop a range of contemporary colours with a twist. All of their paint is environmentally friendly and made in the UK. 

To research colours for the collection, Little Greene experts travelled to National Trust houses across England, Wales and Northern Ireland. They looked at everything from the colour of historic wallpaper and furniture, artwork and artefacts, to clothing collections.  

The final colours draw inspiration from places as varied as the gate at Beatrix Potter's Lake District farmhouse, George Bernard Shaw's revolving writing hut, and Winston Churchill’s family home, Chartwell.

There are 31 colours in the full Little Greene National Trust collection, of which 20 have been inspired by the places in our care. 

Supporting conservation 

A contribution from the sale of every tin of Little Greene paint will go towards the National Trust's conservation work, ensuring the nation's historic houses, gardens and open spaces can be enjoyed for generations to come.

Just as we care for and preserve special places, Little Greene share the same values as custodians of historic decoration. The company finds, reformulates and creates original paint colours and recipes. Working with Little Greene has provided a unique opportunity to redecorate rooms with authentic colours in some of the places we care for.

Little Greene supports our conservation and restoration programme by donating paints to bring colour and life back to some of the nation's much-loved properties. So far, Little Greene have donated paint to support projects at Wray Castle in Cumbria, Standen House in Sussex and Peckover House in Cambridgeshire.
