Mastering Colour

With COAT Paints

Between our range of fabrics and COAT’s gorgeous paints, there’s a world of colour just waiting to be explored! We love working with like-minded brands to create spaces that sing. That’s why we’ve teamed up to bring you a few of our very favourite colour pairings, drawing together rich paints and captivating fabrics. Read on to discover the method behind the magic…

Caprini, Highland Green x Tuesday’s Child

The experts over at COAT Paints have a lot of good things to say about Greige as a colour. It’s an endlessly versatile tone that keeps the look neutral while incorporating a glimmer of warmth. Their Tuesday’s Child is a timeless colour that adapts well to new surroundings, leaving you free to redecorate to your heart’s content! There’s a gorgeous buttercream quality to the paint, which creates a sense of softness that works incredibly well against more vibrant hues. The two balance each other nicely to strike that perfect spot between soothing and energising.

Tuesday’s Child and our Highland Green coloured Caprini fabric play exceptionally well together. Caprini has got a touch of shimmer to it, creating a dynamic effect as natural light ebbs and flows throughout the day. When it’s more shaded, it takes on a sophisticated forest green quality. In blazing sunlight, it comes to life with a fresh and springy energy. On balance, it’s got a classic look to it that can be dressed up with red, yellow, or crisp white accents for a bit of variety.

The tactility and vibrancy of our Highland Green Caprini brings a zap of life to the rich yet understated Tuesday’s Child. Together they produce a pleasing sense of contrast, combining COAT’s creamy, matt paint with the shimmering texture of our fabric. We don’t mean to toot our own horn, but it’s pretty much a match made in heaven.

As COAT co-founder, Rob Abrahams reminds us, it’s always smart to test out a combination in your own space. “Once you've got an idea what you like, you should order fabric samples and paint swatches. It’s so key to see them in your space - see the colours in your light and watch how they behave.” Order swatches of both Highland Green Caprini fabric and Tuesday’s Child paint online to test out the combo for yourself! And if you’d like to expand your horizons while you’re at it, simply schedule a free online style consultation to get a feel for the full range of fabrics we offer.
