Neutral Colour Schemes
We are renowned for our range of neutrals, which are easy on the eye and perfect for creating a look of understated elegance. The following groupings work well as colour schemes in their own right, as well as providing a strong foundation for every other colour on the card.
This sophisticated group of neutrals has traditional roots but also works extremely well in contemporary situations. The underlying grey-green tones have a softness that creates a decorative scheme which feels as if it has been there forever.
The red base in these ageless neutrals creates the warmest of all the neutral schemes. They work beautifully in traditional situations but are also particularly useful in contemporary homes, being sympathetic with many materials used today.
The prettiest and simplest of the neutral groups. These creamy undertones have their roots in the country and are very easy to live with. However, they should never be thought as as yellow – their traditional values stem from the addition of a minute amount of black, which takes them from the ordinary to the special.
This group has 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.
These neutrals have a gossamer appearance that is ideal for those who prefer understated decoration. Neither too cool nor too warm, many people interpret them as the hugely popular tones of the Gustavian period. They are comforting and easy to use.
This is the ideal group for those wanting a strong architectural feel. Purposely cool, with a bluer undertone than the other groups, these neutrals create a more hard-edged look that is conducive to minimal living.
