The new Sweet Treats special colour collection from Little Greene focuses on warm honey, caramel and chocolate tones. A total of 9 colours can be used to create cosy interiors. They are named after well-known desserts and sweet baked goods.
For the Sweet Treats collection, Little Greene has once again collaborated with the National Trust, the UK's largest charitable organisation dedicated to the preservation of historic buildings and gardens in the UK. 5 of the colours are based on historic walls, woodwork and furnishings in listed buildings cared for by the National Trust. These include colours from the Georgian, Victorian and Regency eras.
Ruth Mottershead, Creative Director of Little Greene, explains the idea behind the paint collection: "The rich, warm colours based on umber or ochre are designed to create inviting yet warm interiors. These include the elegant and earthy Split Pink with a subtle hint of pink. All Sweet Treats colours are rather muted in their effect and can therefore be used in almost any room in which a calm atmosphere is to be created."
As always with Little Greene, the 9 shades can not only be combined with each other, but are also coordinated with the other colour shades from the Little Greene palette.
Here are the shades in detail:
This sophisticated, golden honey colour radiates warmth. With its yellow base, supported by a hint of brown, it fits perfectly in hallways, living rooms or kitchens.
The light brown colour is inspired by bomboloni, the Italian doughnuts. Its soft effect in the room makes it versatile.
The medium-weight, orange-brown colour was developed for the renovation of the Theatre Royal in Bury St Edmunds, one of the few remaining theatre buildings from the Regency period. Shades of brown were extremely popular in Great Britain at the beginning of the 19th century. Today, the pleasant autumnal associations make Galette an excellent companion for rustic natural surfaces such as oak, other dark woods, stone or quarry stone tiled floors.
The elegant, earthy Split Pink is a warm, soft pink colour that lends a calming ambience to bedrooms, for example. It is inspired by the Georgian era, which created a striking architectural style in Great Britain in the 18th century.
Affogati are a sweet Italian speciality with coffee flavours. The colour is an excellent companion for dark browns and soft blacks. However, it can also be combined with one of Little Greene's many muted white colours, as shown in the picture.
Muscovado is a warm, earthy red colour. It is equally suitable for lively rooms such as kitchens and rooms that tend to be quieter. It combines well with all Slaked Lime white colours from Little Greene.
The colour is inspired by decorations on the walls of the dining room of Calke Abbey, an 18th century manor house, where it appears alongside shades of pink, green and grey. Mochi is suitable for dining rooms and offices alike and can be combined with the colour Scullery from Little Greene on skirting boards or doors and Shirting or Slaked Lime on the ceiling.
Ganache is a deep, luxurious shade of brown. For a statement room, the Victorian-inspired shade combines perfectly with the even darker Chocolate Colour.
The rich colour adorned the London front door of Georg Fredrich Händel in the 18th century. It is the most intense colour in the Sweet Treats collection and is of course also suitable for interiors. Chocolate Colour is an interesting, warmer alternative to black, anthracite or a dark blue. It can be combined with lighter accent colours such as Marigold or Orange Aurora from Little Greene.
