In tune with a yearning for interiors that link to the natural world, the new colour palette takes its inspiration from the colours of the Ile de Ré, the French Atlantic island famed for its light. The colours are inspired by all the elements: the vegetation of the island and in particular its salt-marshes, where evergreen plants take on a multitude of shades between green and grey; sea and sky merging, with graduations of grey, green and blue. Highlights of oranges in springtime, when wild flowers take over the fields.
The collection is a harmony of twelve lacquer colours each with great depth of colour, with a dominant green note, and complementary greys and oranges.
Building on Haute Déco's unique expertise in creating harmonious colours for decorative hardware, our lacquers are made up of a great many individual pigments, making the colours subtle, at once intense and subdued.
To illustrate how our colours can be used in combination with paint from the likes of Farrow & Ball, Little Greene or Fenwick & Tilbrook, we have created boards with hand-painted swatches associated with each of our new colours. The boards are currently on temporary display at the Kings Road showroom, or can be viewed on-line.
