Discover a More Creative Approach to Colour

Here at House of Hackney we believe in a more creative approach to colour. Colour has always been at the heart of our brand, ever since we launched back in 2011; a riot of colour into a sea of beige. With its ability to uplift, calm and comfort, colour - and nature alike - can transform any space into a personal sanctuary with an abundance of personality. But when selecting the perfect paint approach for your scheme, think beyond colour-blocking and white-walled living. When choosing the ideal ‘The Art of Nature’ hue for you it’s important to consider the ‘big picture’, it’s all about being inventive with your chosen colour. Need a little help igniting your imagination? Here we’ve put together all shades of inspiration…

Before you Begin

Before we get to the good bit, it’s important to take into consideration your home’s existing finishes. What do you want to change? And what can be changed? Ensure your choices align with what you are working with. 

Turn Back Time

When coating a traditional home in colour we encourage you to be inspired by its unique attributes. Immerse yourself in the rich past of your own personal sanctuary by referencing it in your chosen paint shade. For example, complement stained glass or a vintage tile with a colour that will work in harmony with the feature’s heritage.

Pairing with Print

Looking to match paint to your favourite House of Hackney print? We’ve got you (and your scheme) covered. Read more here.

What About Woodwork?

Dare to go dark. When selecting the colour of your woodwork to complement your chosen print, we recommend picking out a darker detail from the design and matching your paint to this. Not only will this add an extra layer of luxury to your space, it will also establish a more regal mood. 

Swathe Your Scheme

Make a statement with your soft furnishings, choosing cushions and fabrics that contrast with your chosen paint shade creates visual interest. As well as colour, take time to consider texture. For example, when working with a matte finish paint a sumptuous viscose velvet will complement your chosen colour and add an extra chic sheen to your scheme.

The Decorative Details

Paint provides the perfect backdrop for your personal possessions. Complement your chosen shade with treasures and trinkets that really make your paint pop - think sumptuous cushions, luxury runnersand our iconic playful lamps

Put the Fun in Function

For those less practical spaces, dramatic hues can lend a theatrical touch in which your creativity can truly flourish. 

Follow Your Fantasy

Be bold and brave. Get creative, especially in those smaller, more hidden spaces where you can really experiment. Think inside the box, literally - coat downstairs bathrooms, closets or large cupboards to create charming accents of the unexpected.

Ready, Set, Swatch

Now we have ignited your imagination, it is time to order a swatch. Painted for a finish and colour true to life, swatches are available in matte 'Emulsion' only. For our 'Eggshell' paint the finish will vary slightly to the 'Emulsion' swatch. 

Now you’ve picked your print, it's time to order your wallpaper sample. Place your sample on the wall and see
your print in its desired location. Top tip: Leave it up throughout the day to see its luxurious finish in all lights.


Pick your Print

Once you’ve seen your sample, you can now get creative with colour. Keep things complementary and choose a
paint colour that also features in your wallpaper. Or make a statement and pair with a contrasting colour palette.

The Fifth Wall

Take your colour palette to new heights and paint your ceiling. Often overlooked, considering the ceiling in the overall design of a room can be a powerful move in creating unexpected impact. Certain to add character and atmosphere, opting for a tonal colour scheme that also covers your ceiling can make a room feel more immersive.
