PER­FECTLY PEACHY

Add vi­brancy to your walls with fruity hues

Salsa Mix (above) is a warm­toned, mod­ern co­ral shade that’s sure to perk up a gloomy north-fac­ing room. Team with sub­dued or­ange and fresh white ac­cents for a con­tem­po­rary feel that’s per­fect for an en­er­gis­ing bed­room scheme.

Named af­ter a trop­i­cal tree that has red­dish-brown wood, Inkwood is an en­tic­ing and soft hue. Prov­ing that pink doesn’t have to be girly, this paint looks gor­geous com­bined with greys and inky colours to cre­ate a con­tem­po­rary scheme.

DRA­MATIC DEPTHS

In­tro­duce a lux­u­ri­ous feel with th­ese in­tense tones

As part of the Dra­matic Deeps paint col­lec­tion, Cran­berry Cock­tail (above) is a rich berry hue that’s bal­anced with an earthy black un­der­tone. This deep shade is a ma­ture take on pink and looks so­phis­ti­cated.

Chi­nese Lan­tern is an ex­otic colour full of warmth, so it’s per­fect for cosy liv­ing rooms. Com­bine with gen­tle sage greens to cre­ate a rest­ful haven and ac­ces­sorise with grey flo­ral prints for a re­fined take on a tra­di­tional look.

EARTH’S RICHES

Deeply pig­mented shades will ground your scheme

A rus­tic earthy colour, Tus­can Red (above) has a sub­tle heat that’s ideal for cooler rooms or shaded walls.

De­spite its in­ten­sity, the strong red pig­ment feels fem­i­nine, es­pe­cially along­side soft greys and off-white.

LIT­TLE GREENE Plucked straight from a gar­den in full bloom, Lille Pink brings in a sense of na­ture with its rose and pe­ony shades. Its vi­brant look can be soft­ened with neu­tral ac­ces­sories, or in­vig­o­rated with splashes of char­treuse, indigo and teal.

SOFTLY DOES IT

En­hance your room with gen­tle blushes

Pash­mina (above) is one of those colours that im­me­di­ately evokes a mod­ern ro­man­tic feel in any room, par­tic­u­larly a bed­room. Its del­i­cate warmth pairs beau­ti­fully with cop­per ac­ces­sories to cre­ate a scheme that is both soft and strik­ing.

CROWN Or­chard Pink looks sim­ply stun­ning with greys and laven­der blues. Al­ter­na­tively, for a brighter feel, it works well with pas­tel yel­lows and greens, while also of­fer­ing a calm­ing coun­ter­point to deep greys, reds and earthy browns.
