Home Colour Schemes

Over the years we’ve learnt that there is fine balance between a white paint palette that keeps a home fresh and relaxing and one that feels sterile and cold. Furniture pays a large role in determining which shade of white is best for you. However, take care in following latest colour trends for home as deeper neutrals, such as grey, can bring more depth and atmosphere to a room rather than white.

Classic and timeless, shades of white have long been popular colour schemes for houses. To determine which shade of white is right for you, talk to a Haymes expert on 1800 033 431.
