The colour scheme of your home will have a greater impact on the overall feel than anything else, so it’s worth taking the time and effort to get it right.  When deciding on the perfect palette, remember that wall colours never work in isolation - they are inter-dependent, especially if you are after the paler tones. The lighter the colour you choose, the more it will be affected by its surroundings.

You need to consider everything else – room orientation and outdoor light, your furniture, floor covering, the colour of your curtains, sofas, your art and accessories. The full colour effect will be the result of all those elements working together, and remember that the mood will change throughout the day.

With The Aark colour palette, tried and tested in many homes, you can be confident in creating a welcoming and easy atmosphere . If you are after modern, contemporary greys and blues, warmer classic country tones or somewhere in between, our collection of essential neutral shades has all the tones that you need.  You can layer them, from lighter to darker, from warmer to cooler, to create your own unique interior, a perfect expression of who you are.

For inspiration have a look at some of the rooms we have created.

This paint shade has been my best friend from the first time I used it for my all white flat (heavily featured in the press). A warm greyish creamy white paint – and yes there is such a thing – that goes extremely well with architectural shades. I always use it for ceilings, cornices and all woodwork. If you want an all white colour scheme, this is the one. It is both flattering to your skin and provides a perfect backdrop to your modern art.
