Walls in Strong White No.2oo1, cabinets in Wimborne White No.239 and ceiling in All White No. 2005


Unsurprisingly, the Contemporary Neutrals have an urban, contemporary feel and to most will appear grey. However, the magic of these neutrals lies in the fact that they have an underlying lilac tone, which brings a little edge to decorative schemes while retaining a certain warmth




Accent with the darker Charleston Gray and Dove Tale for a layered scheme with lots of depth.

Luxurious wallpapers like Lotus BP 2011 and Shouchikubai BP 4501 are best suited to these warm neutrals with a fun, contemporary feel.

Colours that share the Contemporary Neutrals’ lilac undertones will work best with this neutral family. The warm, glamorous tones of Calamine and Pelt sit perfectly with these neutrals. Chameleon blue-greens like Dix Blue and Card Room Green are the best blues and greens to use. Being neither too green nor too blue gives them a vintage feel that works brilliantly with these neutrals.
