Autumn 2022 Colour Palette

As the Autumn months roll in, we try to keep up with the ever-changing environment balancing between light and dark. A reminder of impermanence in the world and the past being the only constant. At Craig & Rose, we reflectively explored historical items, artworks, and our archive to influence our Autumn 2022 forecast.

Nostalgic Monochrome

Create feelings of nostalgia by painting the colours of vintage photography in your home. Influenced by the photography process, the addition of toners helped preserve photographs, altering the appearance of sharp black-and-white prints to a palette of saturated browns with a reddish undertone.

This palette is timeless and has been transcending time for decades. The saturated mid-tone emphasises architectural features and structures. Try Clove Brown eggshell on the woodwork with Pale Cashmere on the walls, ceiling, and cornice. The neutral palette can extend into soft furnishings and furniture, juxtaposed with retro statement lighting.

Wellbeing Whites

Too much of a good thing, white applied monotonously without consideration for the surrounding environment can have a physiological effect on our health. To choose the right white, consider the lighting, the undertones and how you want to feel. For lighting - be aware of how the sun's exposure naturally shifts throughout the day. But also, how artificial lighting and the warmth of bulbs can alter the perception of white. The use of warmer undertones can neutralise colder lighting or vice versa. However, they can clash with 'white' furniture and objects if they don't have similar undertones. Lastly, how do you want your home to feel? In North facing rooms, we love how Chinese White can provide comfort and warmth to counteract the dull natural lighting. In South-facing areas, White Doe holds its own during the brightest hours and delivers a restful feeling throughout the day.
