Pronounced: with a ‘ch’ as in China, not a hard ‘c’ sound.
This is inspired by a bespoke colour made for Lord & Lady Inchyra at beautiful classic Georgian Inchyra House in Scotland. Inchyra Blue is used on the exterior doors of their very impressive byre (or barn) which was restored in 2013. It nestles at the bottom of a rather grey and imposing brae (or hill) so needed to have a depth to it but also be sympathetic to its dramatic backdrop and work with the moody Scottish skies.
Inchyra Blue, like many of our colours, is difficult to put in a box. To some it reads grey and to others green, but what is for certain is that it is the perfect alternative to charcoal for use on walls in contemporary homes. However, it is just at home on the exterior of traditional properties. Its uncertain colour creates an unmatched moodiness especially when combined with Black Blue or Vardo. For the less adventurous it also works perfectly with all the Architectural Neutrals.
In west facing rooms Inchyra Blue will look stronger and less coloured in the morning but become more blue as the day progresses.
Trend watch: This perfectly captures the ongoing popularity of dark tones on all four walls.
