‘Colour Conscience’ is the latest addition to the Haymes Paint colour library (Volume 11 to be exact) and it features three distinct palettes that bear distinctly un-paint-like names. ‘Cohabitate,’ ‘Contribute’ and ‘Comfort’ run the gamut from sweet pastel colours to masculine, monochromatic schemes.
Cohabitate is a fresh, uplifting, sorbet-hued palette and the most strongly feminine of the three. Think peachy pink (‘Streamwood’), warm grey (Greyology 3), a gorgeous pale blue (‘China Blue’) and the yellow-toned ‘Antique White’ which are all about creating spaces that nuture, foster togetherness, recharge and reinvigorate their inhabitants.
Haymes Paint suggests styling these colours with blonde woods, terrazzo inspired flooring and accessories, gloss and matte finishes and geometric shapes.
In contrast, Contribute is all about moody monochromatic colours – dark greys (‘Castlegate’), deep browns and mid-tone neutrals (‘Memory). So while there’s a distinct lack of colour variety to this palette, Haymes suggests it’s all about layering up mixed materials for a strong, textural feel.
Style this monochromatic palette back with natural materials such as marble, stone, travertine and wood alongside stainless steel, greenery and ceramic items for a moody, luxe vibe.
Comfort combines dark green (‘Black Olive’) and teal (‘Viking’) with two-tone reds (‘Berry Juice’ and ‘Nostalgia Rose’) for a sumptuous feel designed to cocoon.
Encouraging calm, these dark intense tones inspire rest and quiet and look fabulous paired with tactile materials such as velvet and rattan. Lush, dreamy bedding layers including textured throws and cushions finish off the look.
