This was a fashionable colour of its time, despite its price tag. Mrs Delany, the 18th century writer, records having her English room “painted a sort of olive for the sake of my pictures”. Consider pairing this rich green paint colour with a dark blue such as Dock Blue or the neutral, Silent White.
Green as moss in the deep Carpathian forest
Like avocado, cherry leaves and pine needles
Very warm green. It’s like walking through a warm, humid forest in the evening.
