Tasting Notes: Country Sky™

Sometimes, it’s periods in time or the things around us that inspire the classic colours in the Heritage Collection, but other times it’s simply moments. Such is the case when it comes to Country Sky™, a relaxed blue-green that takes its cues from that blissful moment when the sun sets on another clear summer’s day and sinks behind the horizon line. Clear blue as far as the eye can see turns into something altogether more enigmatic as warmth gives way to tranquillity. With an unexpected dash of black, Country Sky™ has a cool, muted look that creates soft, calming spaces for dreaming. Let your imagination run wild with a book in a beautiful living room. Shut yourself away with nothing for company but your thoughts in a stylish home office. Or get creative in an inspiring kitchen that encourages ideas. With Country Sky™, the world really is your oyster, and it all begins with colour on your walls.

Serene dream

The brief for a bedroom is the same for everyone: make it a space for relaxation and sleep. It’s a simple solution with Country Sky™, as the calming quality of the colour soothes with its air of calm and serenity. We’ve gone all-out with colour-saturation on the walls, door and woodwork, save for the skirting, cornice and ceiling, which complement in fresh and lively Wiltshire White™. The result is a room that beckons you to bed with a knowing wink – sweet dreams, this way.

A room to relax in

In today’s busy world, switching off can be easier said than done, which is why it’s essential that your living room lulls you into a sense of relaxation. May we propose choosing a touch of Country Sky™ to add a little tranquility? Use it to paint the ceiling and cornice, extending all the way down to the picture rail, so that when you’re lying on the sofa and look up, you’ll be inspired to drift away… A matching door and surrounding woodwork create an equally dreamy entrance, while Swedish White™ on the walls and fireplace helps the whole space feel light and bright. A chill-out room that doesn’t feel cold, who’d have thought it?
