How to Match Paint with Print

Looking for the perfect paint and print combination? Have you found your favourite wallpaper but need
some guidance on a complementary woodwork colour? Perhaps you’ve found your dream House of Hackney
curtains or sofa and need a little help with the perfect paint hue for your wall or ceiling? Whether you
are looking to create a serene scheme or are opting for a more creative and colourful aesthetic, here are
some tips on how to pair our prints with ‘The Art of Nature’ paint collection to create harmony in your home. 

Harmonise Colour Hues

Selecting a shade that matches the background hue of your chosen print brings colour harmony into the interior. 

Make a Maximalist Statement

For a bold maximalist aesthetic, pick a paint that contrasts with your print. The end result will still feel harmonious as you will have crafted a cohesive colour palette.

Harness Tranquil Tones

If a minimalist approach to colour is more to your taste, imbue your space with an understated softness by selecting a muted tone from your print to match your paint to. 

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. 

Half and Half

A nod to traditional schemes, why not try pairing print and paint above or below a dado rail? It can work well either way, but we recommend keeping darker colours below the rail and lighter above - this will not only make your room feel lighter but taller too. 

The Fifth Wall

Take your colour palette to new heights and pair your print with a painted ceiling. Often overlooked, considering the ceiling in the overall design of a room can be a powerful move in creating unexpected impact. For a light and airy finish, select a hue that is a few shades lighter than those that appear in your print. Or if you dare to go to the dark side, opting for a darker hue can have a cosy, cocooning effect. 

Ready, Set, Swatch

Found the perfect paint pairing for your favourite House of Hackney print? It is time to order a swatch or sample pot. 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.
