It started, according to the company’s PR manager, Angela Fawcett, with the hunt for the one. The one perfect shade of grey that would eclipse all the others. It ended with a whole group.

Lamp Black is a dark grey-black coloured paint from Little Greene.

Everything is manufactured in the UK with, Little Greene claims, up to 40 per cent more pigment than ordinary paints, resulting in a deeper intensity of colour.
Ashley Spooner, of Paint and Paper , who supply all the major names, says: We’ve definitely seen “grey” paint colours becoming more and more popular. One thing to look out for is that grey (from all manufacturers) is very much influenced by light and time of day. It is definitely worth using a sample pot and painting a bit of each wall in the room and taking a look at the colour at different times of the day.”

Ashley says Little Greene’s French Grey is a popular shade and adds: “Their Absolute Matt range is perfect for greys because it is virtually sheenless. Little Greene is popular with professionals because of its quality.”
