Switch it up with… Trilby

1st November 2018

Trilby with paint brushes.

Raise your hat to this traditional, honest grey!

Trilby is a grey shade that’s more versatile than it first appears; it’s surprisingly at home in both large and smaller rooms, creating a feeling of intimacy and sophistication.

Because of its yellow-based undertone Trilby is a grey that even works in that unforgiving, north facing light, which can often make rooms appear cold and dark. Trilby will add warmth to such spaces, providing an impeccable finish. In larger living rooms and kitchens it will act as a modern ‘neutral’ backdrop. Treat Trilby as you would a lighter neutral and delight in how well other colours sing against this steadfast shade.

For timeless appeal pair Trilby-painted walls with warmer off-white woodwork and cornicing (Feather Pillow is a classic). Or use it to create a feature wall next to a little dose of palest pink (we’re still lusting after @lustliving’s dream pairing of Trilby, Cupcake and White in her immaculate living room!)

Finally watch as something magical happens when this traditional, honest grey is paired with bolder colours. Yellows, blues and greens are particular favourite for this gracious grey.

Why not test out Shallows with one of our brand-new paint swatches! Each swatch has been individually painted with real Earthborn Claypaint so you know exactly what you’re getting when you order. Place the swatches around the room to see how the light affects the colour at different times throughout the day.

Order a paint swatch of Trilby here and head to our Instagram or Pinterest channels for even more inspiration on how to switch it up!
