The Inviting Home palette
The Inviting palette shows an easy use of colour. Cool shades of blue encourage a clear-headed approach to life, while easy-going neutrals and sea-green support a need for connection. Heart Wood, the Colour of the Year, functions as the subtle contrast at the centre. The palette is well-suited for use in healthcare facilities, as well as work-related spaces and offices - places where people gather.
The muted pastels in the Inviting palette are particularly well-suited to enliven spaces with little natural light and fewer windows. The Inviting home palette has calming, neutral blues and greens that are ideal for entrances and corridors.
Proportions of coloured surfaces can be used to indicate the purpose of a room, or signal a transition to a different area. For instance, softer pastel shades may be framed by graphic borders of coal and dark blue to create an airy mood, yet enhance spatial awareness. Similarly, consecutive rooms painted in several shades of green impart a sense of logic.
The Inviting palette is the perfect choice for any interior with lots of natural materials, chosen for convenience as well as beauty.
