Shades of Pale

The nights may be getting longer, but that doesn’t mean your interior needs to be dark and gloomy. Choosing a palette of tranquil tones will bring light and serenity to your home.

Sofa: Rose 2.5 Seater in Family Friendly Cotton Touch – Violet Gin

We love the recent blog from ‘The Green Eyed Girl’. She chose our Rose Sofa in Family Friendly Cotton Touch – Violet Gin for a light corner of her kitchen. The pale grey-blue of the fabric is accessorised beautifully with other faded shades and eclectic patterns.

The addition of a gold edged marble table and a large, leafy houseplant adds sculptural interest and pops of deeper colour. Head over to The Green Eyed Girl blog to discover more about her stylish interiors.

Choosing Pale Fabrics

A palette made of calming pale shades works best when combining two or more tone. The lightest of greys, blues and greens combine with sandy neutrals to create a harmonious look.

Don’t fear – our range of Family Friendly Fabrics mean that you can opt for the lightest of shades and wipe off any marks or spills with a damp cloth.


Dulux Colour of the Year

Every year, the colour specialists at Dulux create an inspiring new shade; their ‘Colour of the Year’. For 2020, it's Tranquil Dawn, a colour inspired by the morning sky. A versatile shade of pale green that will awaken the senses.

Dulux Colour of the Year

According to Dulux, Tranquil Dawn is a versatile pale pastel, that unlike other shades of Dulux green paint, subtly shifts its tone depending on the shades that it is combined with. When used with a sandy tone, it creates a relaxed and nurturing space whilst paired with brigher shades it becomes playful and inspiring.
