Timeless, stylish and classic, a grey on grey colour palette works in any kind of home. Ranging from soft off-white through to deep moody tones, grey offers a neutral, blank canvas that’s perfect for styling with pops of colour.
Tip: Greyscale can vary from grey/beige (known as greige) tones with brown undertones through to cooler blue-hued colours. It’s important to always test your colour at home to ensure it appears as you intended.
Reminiscent of seascapes or wide open skies, blue is a colour primed for calm. There’s a blue for every mood, whether your shade is a rich, deep navy, proud royal or bright electric.

Reds are perfect for adding warmth, energy and a sense of drama to any space. They are lovely in formal living spaces and hallways or the entry for a warm and welcoming feel.

The colour of nature and the great outdoors, green tones create a relaxing, calming oasis. Soft sage greens meet deep emeralds in a spectrum that’s versatile and can work across a number of different room types.

Natural, earthy brown tones like taupe, tan and beige are gentle and grounding. Palettes in these colours connect us to the earth and soothe the senses. Deeper browns like chocolate and toffee work well to create a warm ambience.
