Silver Birch - A warm, natural green that brings nature’s tones indoors. Muted greens can be a great way to create a sense of serenity and simplicity in a home. Green is known as a colour of healing, balance and motivation so is the perfect colour choice for your bedroom, office, sitting room, and Kitchen.

Silver Birch is a soft, warm dusted grey-green that reconnects your space to nature and creates a soothing, inviting environment. The combination of grey and green offers a simple colour that is easy on the eye and adds the perfect touch of green to any décor style.

It is an exceptional colour choice for people who want to add natural elements into their home without being too intense. It is a great addition to any colour scheme and pairs beautifully with pink, orange, blues, and neutraltones which will radiate warmth and comfort in any space used.

Combining this warm, earthy shade with neutral tones creates a calm, crisp feel to a space. Alternatively pairing Silver Birch with pink or orange tones such as Lowland or Tuscan Tile creates a playful and energetic look and will elevate your space.

Silver Birch can be used in a contemporary or classical colour scheme. Pairing this rich green with a deep blue or off-white shade with brass accents will create a contemporary feel. For a vintage feel pairing this fresh green with sunlit creams or muted mustard shades is the perfect colour combination.



Soft green tones used as a backdrop creates a calm, soothing colour palette. Combining variations of green shades will tie a colour scheme together creating a cohesive look. Silver Birch creates a beautiful contrast against the deep green sofa, providing balance and a sense of harmony. Pairing greens textures of wood brings natural beauty and warmth into any space, which is ideal for north-facing rooms.

As seen below, the pairing of Silver Birch with the natural grain and imperfections of wood brings nature indoors in a subtle way. The variety of plants complements this scheme and transforms this bedroom into a snug, peaceful nook and encapsulates nature’s elegance. The subtle introduction of deeper shades through the soft furnishings adds the right amount of character without disturbing this simple, earthy colour palette.



Silver Birch as a feature wall against a warm-white shade such as Arctic Blonde gives a crisp, clean look and adds dimension. As seen below this feature wall with deep blue tones create a dramatic and contemporary colour scheme. Using Silver Birch with deep blue or teal-toned furniture along with rich black accents, creates a bold contrast and adds the right amount of depth this scheme needs. By adding in soft warm whites such as Arctic Blonde and warm wood elements, this will soften the contrast giving balance to the space.
