Colour Cocktail: The New Neutrals

With autumn settled in for the next few months it's time to cosy up with a new neutrals colour cocktail. Shake off those summer brights with a mix of dusty grey hues and softer nude-like neutrals. Order a metallic chaser to follow and you'll be sorted for the new season. Place a chic grey sofa next to a collection of brass, copper and silver candlesticks holding flickering nude-coloured candles proudly aloft. Then use delicate textures to balance the masculine greys; silk quilts and sumptuous wool pile rugs made up of natural, taupe and auburn tones work well to add warmth to such schemes. Meanwhile, metallic surfaces will reflect the glistening glow of your lights that will shine through the long, dark evenings.

  8. Grey and white, so classic and always elegant. Look at the Christian dior Boutique and salon in Paris! Need I say more?

  9. We are huge grey fans in our house. (and clothes). We have grey walls in most of our house in cool violety grey with pops of orange, teals, greens. it is the perfect backdrop but still holds it's own.
    and oh so chic.

  13. My home is slathered in grays and neutrals right now, from pale to charcoal. I have been debating on painting white my thrift store brass candlesticks but after seeing the pics here and the nude sticks, I'm going to let them shine. Thanks for the inspiration!
