Colour Ways

 
Our Colours    
     
 

We’re often asked about the colours of our products.  Drawing on inspiration and colours from our travels, we bring you a timeless palette to suit both indoors and out, contemporary and vintage homes.  Colours look and feel different in all sorts of lights.  Therefore, our aim is to provide you with a short description to help you visualise the colour ways of our products, enabling you to choose colours which blend with and enhance your own scheme.

     

Chalk

Chalk Colour swatch

A gentle glossy, off-white with a stony quality, Chalk is the colour of freshly laundered linen, luxurious Egyptian cotton sheets and limewashed walls. Its chalky tone has a hint of warm grey added so that it is softer than the bright glare of pure white, making it the perfect neutral shade to blend seamlessly into any colour scheme.

 

Charcoal

Charcoal Colour Swatch

Only one tone away from black, our perfect shade of matt coloured grey will have you reaching for the nearest sofa, enveloping yourself in warm winter cashmere.  This fireside colour is all about soft shadowy flannel trousers and the warm smoky darkness of burnt wood.

     

Clay

Clay Colour Swatch

Possibly best described as the colour of putty and creamy vintage earthenwares, Clay is a warm neutral shade which veers towards a slightly muddied cream, with a glossy finish. It has a versatile natural pastel tone that can easily be mixed with stronger brighter colours.

 

Coffee Bean

Coffee Bean Colour Swatch

A deep brown as comforting as a hot cup of coffee, this shade draws its inspiration from the rich hue of beans before roasting. With an earthy warmth to it, it works beautifully by the fire or out in the garden, giving a vintage look to metal fittings. Calm, rich and bold, Coffee Bean adds a cosy touch to any environment.

Dorset Blue

Dorset Blue Colour Swatch

A darker, Nordic blue, inspired by the different peeling of blue shutter doors painted on Dorset beach houses, set against the flat slate-grey of the sea. Bold and smart, it is just lighter than navy and darker than cornflower, with a gentle brightness to it that stands out in kitchens and perks up gardens.

 

Flint

Flint Colour Swatch

This cool calming shade is an easy to live with soft, white, delicate grey with a glossy finish, evoking the sheen on oyster shells and beach faded pebbles. Its neutral light grey tones mirror the landscape of its home, the Sussex Downs, where flint has long been part of the natural colour scheme and can even be seen in the façades of the great buildings at glorious Goodwood House.

     

Gooseberry

Gooseberry Colour Swatch

Somewhere between the hues of the olive grove and khaki tint of army issued attire, Gooseberry is a soft, calming green with tones of grey which gives a fresh, clean and glossy appearance.  A subtle colour for blending seamlessly from the home into the garden or outdoors.

 
 

Greengage

Greengage Colour Swatch

Verdant is the word that comes to mind when it comes to Greengage. Named for the pale green plum, this glorious shade is somehow bright, calm, fresh and rich all at once. Reminiscent of trees in the height of summer, covered in vivid green leaves, this soft shade is perfectly at home in the garden, but also adds a touch of Spring to any room.

 
     

Slate

Slate Colour Swatch

Dark and striking, our Slate shade has all the style and natural appeal of the stormy grey stone its named for. Verging on black, this bold neutral is perfect for smart elements on garden walls. Soft like a shadow, it offers true elegance and simplicity.

 
 

Stone

Stone Colour Swatch

Despite the other chalks and flints our range, we felt a richer matt cream was still missing... Stone with its soft, creamy base tones beautifully with all of our favourite coffee mugs and teapots on a wooden dresser adding an inherent warmth to any kitchen. This neutral shade suits both country cottages and blends beautifully with the a darker taupe of more urban pads.

 
     

Thyme

Thyme Colour Swatch

A classic garden colour, Thyme is a dark estate green tone, reminiscent of Victorian railings and front doors and possesses a matt quality.  Very much a colour for all seasons, it has a richness, evocative of the attractive dark evergreen foliage of the wild thyme herb itself.
