Breakfast Room Green


A cheerful green

Breakfast Room Green is the most cheerful of all our greens, remaining lively in both bright sunlight or softer candlelight. Named after the usually east facing rooms designed for eating the first meal of the day, it is particularly beautiful in the dawn light. When used alone on both walls and woodwork it becomes incredibly striking. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: James White

Breakfast Room Green is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 152.

Every one of our paint colours is available in a range of durable interior and exterior paint finishes, each rigorously tested to ensure an exceptional depth of colour and long-lasting finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous colour! I’ve tried a number of sample colours on the wall - looking for a ‘strong’ green, but not too dark, as the room is north facing, with a white above the picture rail. Breakfast Room Green is absolutely spot on - a beautiful richness without being too dull or bright. A very elegant colour

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In love I used Breakfast Room Green with Wimborne White and Pink Ground in my new utility room. This is a windowless room and yet feels light as the slight sheen on the eggshell interior woodwork paint reflects the light around. One undercoat and two topcoats covered the wooden cladding and the colour combo is fresh yet soft. Totally love it!! It's even making me want to do washing which is most strange for me...!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lovely colour, fabulous! I am really pleased with this colour. I got it for my living room, in estate emulsion. Also Farrow and Ball- All white for the woodwork, which includes cornicing and picture rail, in acrylic eggshell. I wanted a hard wearing paint for the woodwork but not as shiny as gloss. All white- estate emulsion for the ceiling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this shade of green After trying a few samples I thought I’d try Breakfast Room Green and it’s the perfect shade for the one wall in my living room. I am looking forward to seeing it when it’s all finished.
