3 Ways to Introduce Warmth to Interiors

Written on 6th May 2021

While a quick scroll through Instagram would have you believe that it’s all about neutrals, dark blues and greens right now, reds and pale terracottas are certainly not to be overlooked. Used judiciously, they can spice up any interior space, bring warmth into a poorly lit room, and even flatter the complexion when used in a bathroom.

Faded Terracotta No.CC8

Faded Terracotta is a perfect, flattering pale terracotta shade that would sit beautifully on bathroom walls in Modern Emulsion. Keep other elements simple by using the complementary Dimity on your woodwork (in Estate Eggshell) and ceiling (in Modern Emulsion). You can inject an element of surprise with a splash of Bancha in Full Gloss on a vanity unit or claw-foot bath.

Pink Ground No.202

Pink Ground is a charming shade of pink – not too saccharine, but still gentle enough for a lovely, easy bedroom scheme. Combine with pretty floral linens and cottons and keep woodwork uncomplicated in Pointing, one of our most delicate whites with just a tiny dose of red. You can introduce some contrast to the scheme by painting side tables in Mizzle Modern Eggshell or, for a bolder look, Oval Room Blue.

Red Earth No.64

Red Earth is a beautiful rich terracotta red. This will inject much-needed warmth into a light-starved hall, but it pays to be bold – don’t hold back on the colours you pair it with. Try painting all woodwork in Tanner’s Brown and, rather than the ubiquitous white, going a few tones darker on your ceiling with the flattering neutral of Oxford Stone. This scheme would look especially heavenly if you’re lucky enough to have some original Victorian Minton tiling on your floor.
