East Coast beaches in the winter may not be the first thing that comes into mind when thinking about colour palettes but to me this is one of the best palettes for a home.
I recently went to visit my parents in my hometown of Cleethorpes. Upon the coastal walk with my Dad, I marvelled on the colours and hues of the east coast. Rich wet sand, the sea had a vast range of grey- blues with hints of mauve, the sand dunes looked wild and weathered with grey- greens, opaque skies balancing all of the colours.
Here’s my perfect wintry English seaside colour palette using Farrow and Ball paints as references.
1. Calluna No.270
2. Pavillion Gray No.242
3. Bone No.15
4. Sudbury Yellow No.51
5. Vert de Terre N0.234
6. Brassica N0.271
What can I say, I’m a designer, I love grey, the sea side in the winter is picture perfect. I’m definatley not a photographer so here are some amature snaps of the beach, including a little seal cub being rescued with a broom (15 mins down the coast) at Donna Nook.
