Little Greene is an independent, British paint manufacturer, committed to the socially and environmentally responsible production of high quality paints and wallpapers. With records dating back to the year 1773, the Little Greene Dye Works of Collyhurst Wood, on the outskirts of Manchester is one of England’s most ancient industrial sites for the making of paints and dye solutions.
Reassuringly high pigment levels (over 40% more pigment than many ordinary paints) give Little Greene paints an unequalled depth of colour and a true point of difference. The collection brings together the most beautiful colours from all the key periods in the history of decoration. Only here will you see a genuine 1950s colour alongside an authentic Georgian grey and a contemporary bright red.
Choose from a range of environmentally friendly paints to suit most interior and exterior applications. Traditionalists will favour the classic, long-lasting oil-based paints, which use naturally occuring vegetable oils instead of harmful solvents.

GRAND ILLUSIONS VINTAGE CHALK PAINT
You could be forgiven for thinking that everyone has a paint range out there these days. To a degree this is true with many being called ‘Historical’ or ‘Traditional’. However, we offer an entirely different kind of paint, not one that merely emulates the historical colours of the past.
The wonderful Grand Illusions Vintage Paint actually replicates the Buttermilk Paint of the 18th and 19th Century in its ingredients as well as the colour. This gives it some very different characteristics and can perform differently to those Vinyl Emulsions (to give them their old name) that purport to be Vintage, Historical or Traditional.
Chalk paint does not contain the plasticky vinyl that is found in modern Emulsion Paints. This kind of paint is made with Earth Pigments, Chalk, Clay and a very small amount of Acrylic Medium to bind it together, replacing the casein or milk from days gone by.
This gives it a true chalky, matt, breathable finish. Perfect for walls, floors and furniture, the latter being highly suited to the shabby chic look of today. It is easy to use and a sheer delight. Now available in up to 36 colours from a Nordic-French colour palette. We also offer a supporting range of Grand Illusions sundry items, such as paint brushes.
