Colour of the month is Gainsborough Wash – a calming neutral colour (for those who want something a bit more interesting than magnolia).
Gainsborough Wash is the ultimate in sophisticated-yet-neutral-backdrops; it is certainly not dominating, but at the same time it's not bland. As a gorgeous blend of yellow and dirty beige with a touch of grey, it compliments many different decorating styles, allowing your furnishings and accessories to take centre stage.
Gainsborough Wash is a soothing and relaxing colour, and it's versatile too, so if your long-term plans involve changing the use and styling of a room in the future, then you won't have to repaint.
For the nursery, it is a lovely and calming gender-neutral colour; ideal if you'd rather avoid monochromatic white or grey. It works brilliantly with natural wood or white furniture and provides the perfect backdrop for wall-mounted art and pictures.
Gainsborough Wash comes in 4 different finishes:
- Matte - a solid, elegant finish and the best choice for older walls with ‘character’
- Eggshell - slightly more lustre than the matte and easier to maintain
- Silk - high sheen finish and the easiest to clean, just wipe with a damp cloth
- Gloss - provides those finishing touches to wood and metal (both indoor and out) to complete a look
