All the Homeware Pieces I Love Come in These Three Colours


If you’ve ever browsed a paint catalogue, then you’ll know the existential crisis that comes from having to decide between five shades of white that are totally indiscernible from each other and have names like “Savage Ground” and “Mole’s Breath.” This is the situation I found myself in at the end of 2020 as I moved into my new flat and was confronted with the task of choosing a new colour scheme and the accompanying homeware paraphernalia. Do I go maximalist with primary brights everywhere or stick to Scandi neutrals? Do I even bother with a “scheme” and embrace a more haphazard approach? It was hard to know where to start. 

But over many weeks of scrolling and pinning, I found that there were three hues that drew my eye time and again: forest green, rust orange, and teal blue. While I certainly wouldn’t consider myself a colour fanatic, I did want to include a few vibrant highlights in each room, be it a painted wall or colour-contrasting lamp. These three shades offered me just that and helped me to create, if not a theme as such, some coherence between each room.

I particularly like the effect of placing brighter pops of colour in front of more neutral walls, such as sage green and orange, pale blue and red. But one thing’s for sure: It’s all very much a work in progress. So if, like me, you’re feeling a bit lost in the world of interior colour trends, allow me to show you the piece I’m loving right now—not a Mole’s Breath in sight.

Style Notes: Said to be the most calming colour on the spectrum, green has been my go-to for my home-working spaces, and I plan to make it the main hue when I update my kitchen. It also looks cool when used as a pop of colour against a neutral wall.

Style Notes: Rust orange will probably be a bit of a marmite colour for most people, but I believe, when used in moderation, it can add some serious personality to a space. Embrace ’70s styling with a statement orange pendant lamp or brighten up a white-washed living room with a velvet armchair. (I’m currently eyeing up the below from Made.com.)

Style Notes: It might not appear to be the most cutting-edge colour in our line-up (and yes, there is a risk it can creep into baby blue—gulp), but I find light teal blue to be a stunning colour when used in conjunction with brighter shades such as orange. Just make sure to keep silhouettes pared back to avoid things looking too cutesy.
