“Repairing to my own little sea-green room, there I found a bright fire, and candles too were lit: a tall waxlight stood on each side the great looking glass; a cabinet with sea-green walls, also a polished and large glass. This toilette, together with a small, low, green and white chintz arm-chair, a wash-stand topped with a marble slab, and supplied with utensils of pale green ware, sufficiently furnished the tiny chamber.
VILLETTE, by Charlotte Bronte (1853)
Since reading Villette many years ago, sea-green is to me the colour of calm and sanctuary. There is a sort of timelessness about it. This is why I chose it for our brand colour back when setting everything up. A variation of this old-friend-green is now in our envelopes, ribbon and font, and I am still not tired of it.
