1. Salt:

 

Salt is the perfect blend of red and blue tones, creating a cool light grey.

Farrow and Ball describe this colour as; A bright, crisp white, reminiscent of the salty air ushered in by the Pacific Ocean and the delicate crystalline layer it leaves behind.

This colour creates the perfect backdrop that will lend itself to any design style.

2. Blackened:

 

Blackened is a cool white with the slightest hint of grey, making it a wonderful neutral backdrop to modern interiors.

I love how this colour evolves over the day: cooler earlier in the day and a bit more moody at night.

Pair up with a block colour for an eye-catching decor, or pair down for a calm, neutral feel.

3. Strong White:

 

A cool white with grey undertones.

I love this colour because of its versatility, and can be used in both formal and casual settings and the colour is always pleasing to the eye.

Use it in a very dark spaces as it brightens up an interior a surprising amount.

It may appear a tad icy because of the lack of natural light, however, it is not a cold grey and it does have a lot of blue-green in it.
