Do you want more from your love of neutral schemes? Squeeze some extra from the look by layering neutrals for a more fulfilling result.

It’s time to share a little trade secret to getting the perfect neutral scheme. Designers love a timelessly elegant backdrop to let key pieces do the talking but recreating this look at home often falls flat. The secret is to layer neutral tones and textures to create visual intrigue and stop the look from becoming bland.

Luckily for you, we have teamed with Irish Designer Denise O’Connor to bring you a truly beautiful composition of neutrals that have specifically been chosen for Irish homes. Try using “Subtle” tones such as Subtle Cinder on your wood work, alcoves and ceilings. Then use Mid and Pure tones like Mid Cinder and Pure Cinder to create feature walls or highlight period features such as dado rails. Add simple styling touches such as a gallery wall or trios of candles in isolation for a truly designer inspired look.
