California Meets Our Core Collection

Written on 9th June 2021

The eight new colours in our California Collection might look great together, but we also designed them to work effortlessly with our existing palette. You don’t even have to take our word for it – feast your eyes on some of our favorite cross-collection combinations below.

Tar CC1

This modern look makes Tar the star, and to stunning effect. Peignoir walls and a Strong White trim and floor are tied together by their shared gray undertone, while Tar on the door makes a dramatic statement, echoed subtly by the black photo frames and table legs.

Sand CC2

Sand is one of the most versatile shades in the California Collection, providing a neutral counterpart to colours from across our core palette. Here, it brings a little lift to earthy London Stone, used on the paneling and floor, and is finished off with Wimborne White coving.

Citrona CC3

Sunny Citrona is paired here with its palette-mate Stoke, but any strong gray from our core collection will work too – think Plummett or Down Pipe. For an unexpected accent, try a darker yellow or even a rich olive, as this room’s stylists have introduced in the form of the pendant light and chair.

Palm CC4

For a modern take on the candy-coloured palettes of Palm Springs, pair soft Palm walls with a stronger Arsenic trim and dusky pink accents. In our super-tough Modern Eggshell, Wimborne White brings a light and bright finishing touch to the floor.

Salt CC5

Salt is the complementary white to all of our California Collection colours, but it also makes a wonderful wall colour in its own right. Here, Dimpse and Plummett on the paneling and floor (respectively) play the supporting roles in this soothing tonal scheme.

Hazy CC6

Cabbage White is a delicate white from our core collection whose blue undertone makes it a natural partner for Hazy. In this nautical-inspired look, the combination of blue and white is clean and classic, while the horizontal shiplap gives it a contemporary twist.

Stoke CC7

Deep gray Stoke may be one of the stronger colours in our California Collection palette, but this striking combination turns it on its head, using it as the lighter foil to Tar. A ceiling and trim painted in Ammonite, from our core collection, keeps things feeling light.

Faded Terracotta CC8

This sun-drenched look is all about keeping the contrast low. By pairing Faded Terracotta with creamy New White and red-based Pointing rather than bright whites, our experts have created a scheme that feels fresh and exciting, but with a subtly aged feel.
