Soft delicate lightly yellowed dusky green that is sophisticated and gentle yet it works well with modern pieces too. This is a colour which picks up other colours well and changes character accordingly. With pinks, creams and whites it looks back to the French court of Versailles but with turquoise blues, duck egg blues and chocolate browns it is a sassy modern colour.
