With Christmas looking to be a smaller family occasion for many of us this year, it’s the perfect excuse to create an idyllic retreat with a warm and organic palette. A dark forest green, worn gold and dusky pink are enhanced by a neutral grey and soothing white stone. Taking inspiration from a cozy cabin in the woods, this month’s palette is rich with warmth and escapist comfort.
For a rustic and warm style during the festive period, Vintage Gold is an easy all-over neutral for open plan dining and living spaces. To keep with this warm natural scheme, apply mid-tone, Wood Shadow to doors and frames, and add feature walls or fireplaces in soft Feather Stone. Introduce dark natural green, Vegetarian through soft textiles, simple wreathes and of course, the Christmas tree! Warm festive lighting, neutral decorations, wooden logs and wicker baskets all add to this Hygge inspired aesthetic.
Simple and natural, give stairways a color update with Vintage Gold. Working towards a tone-on-tone scheme, invite the outside in and decorate with forest sprigs, leaves and twigs in organic greens and browns in wreathes and garlands.
For a modern and uplifting kitchen mood try a soft and warm duo of shaded pink and white. Here, cabinets and shelving in pink Cave Painting sit delicately against a backdrop of the calming white Feather Stone.
Taking inspiration from dense and dark pine forests, the muted green, Vegetarian completely transforms a kitchen. Refresh wooden cabinets with neutral grey Wood Shadow, add aged brass fittings and countertops in natural wood and emphasize a simple country cabin style. For a little festive touch decorate with frosted pine sprigs and gold and white baubles.
Wake up bare brick walls with off-white Featherstone and apply Wood Shadow to fireplaces. Pairing perfectly with rustic wooden accessories, candles and foliage, this neutral duo feels light and sophisticated. Why not try an allover paint scheme in natural pink Cave Painting? Comforting and calm, this neutral blush brings gentle warmth. Escape inside this winter and enjoy your festive retreat!
