November 09, 2022 3 min read

As the weather grows colder and the evenings grow darker, it is not surprising that we are all spending more time inside. As the outside temperatures drop at this time of year, it's important that we feel warm and cosy in our homes. Colour has the power to completely transform a space, from painted woodwork to walls, why not give your home a fresh new look with one of our favourite warm neutrals this winter? To help you find the perfect colour for your next painting project, we have selected our top five favourite neutrals that are guaranteed to create a cosy and inviting feeling in your home. 


Our Four Favourite Warm Shades

 1. Chestnut Pink

It's not always necessary to use light tones when designing a cosy atmosphere. Dark and moody shades can be used to enhance the mood in a room, making them feel warm and inviting. The brown and blush undertones of a shade like Chestnut Pink will give your interior an earthy touch. Chestnut Pink, from our Contemporary Collection, is the ideal colour to make a subtle statement while still creating a cosy atmosphere. For a warm but dramatic appearance, consider colour-drenching your living room or bedroom with Chestnut Pink.  Colour drenching is a fabulous technique to bring a feeling of warmth into your home, to learn more about colour drenching click here.

 2. Alabaster White 

Off-white colours are perfect for those looking to find a balance between warmth and cosiness in their space whilst still maintaining a bright and airy look around the home. The right shade of off-white can serve as a beautiful backdrop for any living space. Alabaster White, a popular shade from our Contemporary Collection, is a refreshing white with a soft warm hue. This creamy, subtle white will create a sophisticated but welcoming environment. Alabaster White is the perfect shade for you if you are looking to create a fresh interior look without being too sharp.

3. Newgrange 

Connecting with the Irish historic landmark honouring the illuminations of light that occur once a year at The Newgrange Winter Solstice, Newgrange is a soft brown with a cosy blush undertone from our Weather Collection. Newgrange is a stunning colour choice for woodwork or as a feature colour on upcycled furniture. Consider adding a touch of warmth to your space by painting the skirting boards or panelling within your space with Newgrange.
