The lightest of soft greyish-greens is 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 decorated fine stoneware and dishes for centuries since.
Today, celadon is still viewed as an elegant and delicate colour choice. Its tranquil beauty, recalling the soft green sea, is ideal 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.
