An inviting deep green
More intensely green than Green Smoke, yet deeper and more aged than Calke Green, this inviting mid tone has a lived-in feel that works wonderfully in traditional spaces. Its name is inspired by our home in Dorset, just outside the market town of Wimborne Minster.
Available in our brand new Dead Flat finish for walls, woodwork and metal.
Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones
Complementary white: Old White
Rated 5 out of 5 by Desertmamasita from My absolute favorite of the greens! We have a large south facing kitchen with brick floors, very rustic looking space. I tried a dozen different samples before taking the gamble on Minster that, as an archive, had no samples. Excellent choice, we absolutely love this color and it works so well with the brick and accents in Shadow White, really stunning. I'll add photos when done - we are painting the cupboards in Off Black, but I can't say enough about how wonderful this color is, it was just the perfect British green this Yank was looking for - reminds me of an old leather couch, has a bit of a velvety feel to it. The adjacent dining room is in India Yellow and Minster is a perfect compliment to it. Happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cara L from Gorgeous Green! I’m renovating a home in Chicago that was built in 1890. The style at the time was unique, almost like a bridge from Late Victorian to the Arts and Crafts movement. What I found interesting is that from the Late Victorian era through around 1950, shades like Minster Green showed up in historic paint palettes. So I think this green could work in so many older homes but at the same time would be beautiful if you’re going for a modern look too. I love that the shade is vibrant but has just a touch of gray that gives it a calming vibe. I don’t have the best pics, but here it is as a quick swatch in my east facing room with a few lamps on. I really love the way this color glows and looks so pretty as a backdrop for my plants.
