3 Ways to Build a Scheme with Colour by Nature

Written on 17th June 2021

Walls: Ash Grey No.W9; Wardrobe: Shadow White No.282


Our Colour by Nature collection, created in collaboration with the Natural History Museum, is designed to work in harmony with our palette of 132 colours as well as on its own. To prove it, we’ve put together three looks using a few of our most versatile colours from across the two collections.

Scotch Blue and Off-White

Rich Scotch Blue is a real attention-grabber, perfect for a living room feature wall. Rather than a bright white on the remaining walls, try a neutral with a more aged feel, like Farrow & Ball classic Off-White. This keeps the contrast low and the overall effect soft, which helps to create a space that feels as welcoming in the evening as it does in the day.

Crimson Red and Hague Blue

This look comes to us direct from the living room of Instagram user @maxmademedoit, featuring Hague Blue walls and woodwork paired with a Crimson Red ceiling. It’s a masterclass in combining colour, with a selection of tones that might sound eccentric on paper – teals, navies, corals and electric blues – working effortlessly together in the room.

Ash Grey and Shadow White

This all-neutral combination creates an easy, breezy bedroom scheme. Starting with stony Ash Grey from our Colour by Nature collection, gradually lighter iterations of the same colour are introduced through other elements in the room, with slightly paler Shadow White on the wardrobes and a brighter white again on skirting – try Snow White or Wimborne White for a similar look.
