Celadon, the essence of tranquillity

Pale and elegant, this colour never goes out of fashion.

The palest of pale grey-greens is known as celadon, a beautiful colour named for the Chinese pottery made as early as 25 AD. Highly valuable for its beauty in ancient times, people believed that celadon pottery would break or change colour if poisoned food was put into it (very useful if you were a distrustful emperor!). Celadon has lent its beauty to stunning stoneware and dishes for centuries since.

Today, celadon is still viewed as an elegant and delicate colour choice. Its tranquil beauty, like 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.
