Capability Green is a warm, natural green inspired by the beauty of the English landscape. Use it to bring the soothing qualities of the outdoors, indoors.
The name is a nod to the lush gardens of the 18th Century English landscape gardener Lancelot “Capability” Brown, who remains to this day the most celebrated English gardener. His greatest works merged the rolling landscape of untamed country parks with flower gardens and ha-ha walls.
A colour that is gentle and soothing to the eye, Capability Green works well with most other colours in the palette, but particularly well as a neutral base alongside blues, pinks and yellows.
Capability Green has been especially developed alongside Annie Sloan’s friends at the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) to celebrate the great English outdoors.
Available in 120ml and 1 litre tins. 1 litre is enough to cover approximately 13 square metres.
