Paint colours inspired by Cotswold Lavender

Steve HallComment

We've been inspired by a visit to Cotswold Lavender this week.

Cotswold Lavender is a family farm located a short drive from our shop. The farm, which overlooks Broadway and the beautiful Vale of Evesham, has been growing Lavender since the year 2000. With over 35 varieties and 500,000 plants it's a wonderful place to spend time and browse the range of unique products on offer (all of which are made in Great Britain!).


Here are our picks of paint colours inspired by our trip...

Dove Tale and Brassica by Farrow & Ball

Dove Tale is the perfect choice for a grey bedroom. Its lilac undertone gives a soft boudoir feel. 

Brassica feels feminine and charming in light areas but due to its underlying black tone it becomes much more sophisticated and grey in dark areas. 

Damson Mousse and Inglenook by Earthborn

Damson Mousee is a comforting and warm colour – perfect for bedrooms or dining rooms.

Inglenook is a sophisticated combination of taupe, grey and lilac. A grown up colour suitable for any room.

Perse Grey and Erica by Paint & Paper Library

Perse Grey – a deep grey alternative, providing warmth by the way of violet.

Erica is a beautiful reduced lavender.

Thai Sapphire and Welcome-Dark by Little Greene

Thai Sapphire is a saturated and hot blue. It will add splendour and drama to a scheme.

Welcome-Dark (from the Welcome colour scale) is a boudoir colour of real delicacy and richness without being overbearing.
