With a colour palette of deeper hues of blues, rich clarets and burgundy reds, burnished orange and deep greens as well as olive and ginger you can make the traditional scheme bolder in your home. Colours featured: Dulux St Clair Half (wall) and Te Kuiti (door).
Soft blues and greens, neutral grey, sand and warm whites, creates a beautiful Hamptons feel. Colours featured: Dulux Franz Josef (walls) and Cardrona (trim).

The layering of textiles and textural objects will create a beautifully elegant look. For a soft warm white try Manorburn Quarter or Cardrona. Colour featured: Dulux Manorburn Quarter.
The rustic style is alluring in rich and deep reds, warm browns and golds as well as tans and beige. Deep greens can be used for accent as well as mustards and rich blues. Colours featured: Dulux Cardrona and Glinks Gully (walls).
To create a Rustic style layer warmer colours, such as terracotta, rich natural timber and showcase solid furniture. Colours featured: Dulux Armada, Beige Royal and Rodham (walls).
