The palest of pale light greens, it is also known as celadon, a beautiful colour named for the Chinese pottery thought to date as far back as 25 AD. Highly prized for its beauty in ancient times, celadon ware was also believed to break or change colour if poisoned food was put into it (very useful if you were a distrustful emperor!). Celadon has adorned exquisite stoneware and dishes for centuries since.

Today, celadon is still viewed as an elegant and heavenly colour choice. Its shade, recalling the pale green sea, is perfect for bringing calm to a room where you want to feel relaxed and refreshed. Its delicate and timeless qualities make for a feminine bedroom wall colour or a serenely pretty bathroom.
