MUTED BLUES

Homes+ (Australia) - - BARGAIN BUYS -

Although nor­mally con­sid­ered a cool sum­mer tone, muted blues can be used year round and can add a re­lax­ing feel with­out be­ing too cold for win­ter styling.

PANTONE “SEREN­ITY” is a deep pas­tel tone with the ad­di­tion of a grey base to pre­vent it from be­ing too cool. It works per­fectly with grey- or cof­fee-based neu­trals and also with chalky, greyed off whites. RESENE “DUSTED BLUE”, “FROZEN” AND “DUCK EGG BLUE” shades are also greyed off, but in slightly deeper pas­tel tones that have a stormy-sea feel. If your’re look­ing to re­paint old fur­ni­ture, these tones will work a treat, creat­ing a re­lax­ing feel, espe­cially as a sub­tle con­trast to chalky white cab­i­netry.

MUROBOND “MONET” Avail­able in the wide range of Murobond fin­ishes, in­clud­ing Lime­wash, for a rich vel­vety ap­pear­ance, and Pure acrylic paint are suit­able for both in­te­rior and ex­te­rior ap­pli­ca­tions.
