Hit Refresh: Three New Schemes For Redecorators

Written on 19th February 2019
Whether it’s a general spruce-up or a targeted effort, a one-room wonder or a top-to-bottom transformation, chances are most of us are thinking about redecorating our home in one way or another. But with the best will (and the most beautifully curated Pinterest boards) in the world, it can be difficult to know how to bring out the best in your beloved space. We know this better than anyone, so that’s exactly where our brand new room schemes come in. Our expert Colour Consultants have been hard at work finding the combinations of colour and finish that will help any long-lived-in house feel like home again, and the results can be found below.

Scheme One: Bedroom

Skimming Stone No.241 | Estate Emulsion, Jitney No.293 | Estate Emulsion, Tanner's Brown No.255 | Estate Eggshell

After a few years of grey-dominant palettes, a return to warmer neutrals is on the cards. But before you start entertaining visions of floor-to-ceiling Magnolia, take a moment to admire this restful Jitney room. A roof space bedroom runs the risk of feeling claustrophobic, but this laid-back neutral is soft enough to be taken onto the sloping walls, creating cosiness alongside a Skimming Stone ceiling. Deep Tanner’s Brown on the skirting boards is an unexpected touch but keeps to the same undertone as the wall colour for a cohesive feel.

Scheme Two: Kitchen

Sulking Room Pink No.295 | Modern Emulsion, School House White No.291 | Estate Emulsion, De Nimes No.299 | Estate Eggshell

Pink and blue might feel like bold choices for a room as often-used as the kitchen, but we find there’s nothing like an unexpected colour combination to breathe life into a formerly humdrum space. This scheme invites you to keep certain elements classic, with white cabinetry, splashback and ceiling, but balance them with playful injections of colour in the form of De Nimes woodwork and Sulking Room Pink walls.

Scheme Three: Living Room

Treron No.292 | Estate Emulsion, School House White No.291 | Estate Eggshell, De Nimes No.299 | Estate Eggshell, Bancha No.298 | Modern Eggshell, 

Personally, we’re always thinking green, but it seems to be enjoying a well-deserved resurgence for 2019. This Treron living room looks equally sophisticated in both its variations. If you prefer a more classic combination, try School House White on the skirtings and ceiling; for a contemporary twist, swap it for moody blue De Nimes. You can even increase the mileage of your furniture pieces with a coat of Modern Eggshell, as with this Bancha dresser.
