Start Your Spring Refresh with Colour by Nature

Written on 18th March 2021

As year-round advocates of the bright, bold and beautiful, even we have to admit there’s something particularly special about spring. With the warmer, longer days come flurries of frothy blossom, jewel-bright crocuses, fresh green leaves and bank upon sunny bank of daffodils, bringing a much-needed touch of cheer to the landscape. Capturing that spring feeling in your interiors too is easy to do – just see our Colour by Nature collection, created in collaboration with the Natural History Museum, for inspiration.

Spring Greens

We can’t get enough of green no matter the season, but it feels a particularly apt choice in spring. Reflect the emerging greenery of the outdoors with Sap Green, which has a subtle yellow undertone and works beautifully in a mid-century modern scheme. Or take your cues from the conifers and go for a darker evergreen hue like Duck Green, which looks brilliant on walls or woodwork.

Blooming Hues

How do our Colour by Nature brights encapsulate the shades of spring so well? It’s all down to their origins in nature. Dutch Orange is the golden colour of marigolds, while Lake Red was observed in the velvety petals of red tulips and evokes the cerise tones of garden favourites azalea and camellia too, bringing instant cheer – and a clever nod to nature – into any space.

Fresh and Bright

Spring decorating is all about bringing a breath of fresh air to your space, and one of our favourite ways to do that is with a simple white or off-white scheme. Snow White and Skimmed Milk White take their colours from early-flowering snowdrops and hepatica nobilis, respectively, invoking the new season in more ways than one. While Snow White is bright with a hint of creaminess, suiting more traditional spaces, Skimmed Milk White has a more greyed tone, and feels a little more contemporary as a result.
