Choosing Complementary Colours

Choosing Complementary Colours

Our intuitive colour palette is the ultimate tool for Architects, designers and home enthusiasts as we have closely edited and aligned the colours to deliver intuitive cohesion and continuity from colour to colour. 

The simplistic, yet intelligent, design of our palette makes it easy to combine our 'Original Colours' with our ‘Architectural Colours', for an effortless, complementary result. 

Found on the lower section of the Colour Card, our 'Original Colours' can be used independently or as part of a scheme to add more strength and depth to any interior.

Positioned on the top half of our Colour Card, our ‘Architectural Colours’ provide an ideal match for any scheme, due to the subtle graduation in strength of pigment.  


Use a combination of our two palettes to achieve a sophisticated result and a balanced scheme. Shown here in this living room, a combination of ‘Wattle’ tones, ‘Muga’ & ‘Hunter Dunn’.

Another example of using both palettes harmoniously is displayed in this living room scheme, which once again uses our Architectural Colour family, 'Wattle'. Completing the scheme, two strong Original Colours, 'Georgetown' and 'Plimsoll' are added for impact.

As demonstrated, ‘Wattle’ is a highly versatile Architectural Colour family that can be combined with a range of ‘Original Colours’, from opposite ends of the colour spectrum. This tone is ideal for halls, stairs and landings - it also works as a great backdrop for paintings!
