Updated: Mar 31, 2023

Little Greene Paint is known for its unique and historic colour palette, and one shade that stands out is Goblin 311. This deep and rich shade of green is inspired by the mischievous collector of Snowshill Manor, Charles Paget Wade, also known as Goblin 311. Let's dive into the story behind this colour and how you can bring it into your home today with Little Greene Paint.

The Story of Goblin 311

Charles Paget Wade was an architect, artist, poet, and collector extraordinaire, with a penchant for playing tricks on his guests. His reputation for mischief earned him the nickname "Goblin 311." But Wade was also a lover of design, craftsmanship, and colour, as evidenced by his vast collection of 22,000 items, which ranged from Samurai armour to bicycles, musical instruments to pottery. It was this love of colour that inspired Little Greene Paint to create the shade Goblin 311. This deep green hue is reminiscent of the lush countryside surrounding Snowshill Manor, where Wade spent his days curating his collection and playing tricks on unsuspecting guests.
