This strong,deep green takes inspiration from the painted shutters and doors of Amsterdam. It works well with whites and creams and botanical imagery and plants, as well as looking brilliant with earthy yellows and reds – try teaming it with Primer RedArles and Old Ochre. It also makes a great backdrop to cool blues, such as Provence, Giverny and the purple tones of Emile.
