Under The Spotlight - Salter Stone - Colourtrend Paints

January 12, 2023 3 min read

Welcome back to our series, Under the Spotlight. This month we will talking all things Salter Stone, a classic stone shade from our Historic Collection.

Neutral paint colours can be used to create a real sense of calm and comfort in the home. Warm neutral shades create a restful space, these soothing tones are perfect for bringing a relaxing feel to any space in your home! They can be used in an all-over scheme for a cocooning feel, or alongside a bold feature shade. We foresee ‘classic neutrals’ emerging as a key trend for 2023, while grey is having an undeniable moment, we can’t gloss over the fact that stone neutral shades are catching everyone’s attention.

Having similar characteristics to cream – Salter Stone, a classic stone shade, pairs well with just about anything – it is a timeless shade that has the ability to add warmth to any décor style. This year there is certainly a shift away from cooler greys towards warmer hues and the warm neutral tones in Salter Stone provide the perfect shade for creating a restful living space, whilst attaining elegance in both contemporary and classical settings. This is not about a return to beige or magnolia, it’s about using these new neutrals to create interiors that are stylish and inviting.

Living Room

Our households have become our haven over the last few years, whether it is working or relaxing we are all spending an increased amount of time at home. Salter Stone is a versatile, natural colour choice offering warmth and comfort, the perfect colour choice for a living room. Salter Stone brings together a harmonious palette of colours, as seen below, paired with Inkwellon the furniture, this colour combination creates a contemporary palette. Alternatively, Salter Stone paired with soft whites and patterned textiles creates a bright and airy New England vibe. Salter Stone works wonders for home interiors across all styles and tastes.

In the vast and endless world of colour, it can be difficult to find the perfect shade for your space. A neutral stone colour such as Salter Stone, is a great choice, with undertones of brown and cream it helps create a backdrop for bolder décor or blends seamlessly with more muted, subdued colours. With many of us spending an increased amount of time indoors, our homes are becoming spaces to relax and retreat. More than ever, there is a greater need to surround ourselves with comforting, soothing colours that are not only easy to live with but provide warmth and serenity within our living environments. Another key trend that we will most certainly be carrying in to 2023 is colour drenching. Colour drenching involves painting multiple surfaces within a space in the one colour, creating a sense of cosiness. Colour drenching with a shade like Salter Stone, as pictured below will you achieve a sophisticated and homey look.
