Get The Natural Look With Albany Paint And Wallpaper

February 8th, 2024

If you’re looking to create a calm and serene interior, introducing natural textures and a neutral colour scheme into your space is the perfect solution. Decorating with natural living in mind is also a great way to become more sustainable in your daily life. Here’s how to get the look with Albany paint and wallpaper!

A neutral colour scheme:

For a neutral colour palette, we would suggest using a combination of rich chocolates, soft oatmeals and soothing taupes with red and yellow undertones for a warm and earthy feel, bringing you right back to nature. 

Make sure you use a white with warmer undertones on the ceiling and trim. 

Avoid using brilliant white anywhere as this will make the room feel colder. 

If you would like to include an accent colour, choosing something with warm undertones will add interest whilst keeping the scheme coherent.

Shaldon – a muted beige which is perfect for adding neutral warmth to your space.

Roedean - a soft, warming brown.

Burnt Butter – a rich, caramel brown with warm yellow undertones.

For a more environmentally friendly option, use a water-based finish such as Albany Vinyl Matt or Albany Durable Matt as they are low in VOCs and kinder to you and the planet.

Natural wallpaper:

One way to make a space feel softer is to use a textured wallpaper. 

This immediately makes the space feel warmer and more inviting as it tends to mimic the feeling fabric. 

The Albany Natural Living collection contains a range of wallpapers which are PVC free, using an innovative formula, relying solely on a specialised polymer. 

The wallpaper coating has been specifically designed to be free from plasticisers and solvents, making this collection ideal for sensitive living spaces. 

If you want to add a slight texture to your wall, Plaster Effect adds a beautifully chic look whilst Woven Plain has a slight texture to produce a woven fabric look. 

If you would like your space to have more of a literal reference to the outdoors, Jungle Leaf and Living Jungle are beautiful designs paying homage to flora and fauna.
