Albany Earth Tones - A Calming Colour Palette For Today

February 1st, 2021

Albany paints has a long-standing history of transforming people’s homes with colour. The pandemic has caused turbulence to many people’s lives and has affected the way we use our homes, whether for home-working, educating our children or relaxing in. With this in mind, Albany has created a calming colour palette, based on earthy, grounded shades to help create a restful interior. Available in Albany Durable Matt, Vinyl Matt, Acrylic Eggshell, Eggshell, Gloss, Vinyl Silk and Soft Sheen.

The palette can be used to make a monochromic scheme (the use of one colour, in different shades), which can produce a soft, soothing atmosphere. If you prefer a little more contrast, but still want to keep it calm, mix and match harmonising shades to find your ideal combination. Sample pots are available to order online at and Albany always recommends trying the colour in the room, paying particular attention during the time of day that the room will be used.
