Blending Lundhs Antique with Shades of Green

Colour Designer and Expert Dagny Thurmann-Moe demonstrates how to combine various shades of green with the illustrious hints of brown and inky blue found in our very own Lundhs Antique natural stone.

Here, Dagny and KOI Colour Studio opted to combine one shade of green, Bancha Green from Farrow & Ball, with others in the mood board, along with shades of brown and a hint of inky blue in the form of Serene Blue 5490 from Jotun. Photo: Margaret M. de Lange. Styling:Kirsten Visdal.

Combine warn brown tones in Lundhs Antique with Bancha Green

Bancha Green from Farrow & Ball is a fascinating, warm tone of green. It’s a little stronger than olive green, creating a room with a warm and organic feel. All shades of brown have red in them, and because green is a complementary colour to red, it brings it out nicely, giving the stone a reddish appearance. There are plenty of ways of extending a palette. Green is the most prevalent colour in nature and the one we are most used to seeing other colours set against.
