The best paint colours for the laid back family

The laid back family likes to work smart, not hard.

Convenience is key to a happy home, they don’t like things to be over complicated.

This is also the case when it comes to decorating their home. Luckily, for the laid back family, our Lifestyle emulsion means with a lick of paint (normally just one coat) they can transform their home quickly and any future scuffs and splashes can be easily wiped away.

To make the decorating process even easier we’ve picked the best paint colours for the laid back family, so they can get back to what they do best – chilling.

Sunday Stroll

Perhaps the best day of the week for the laid back family, we selected Sunday Stroll our mellow green with grey undertones.

This hue is best suited for spaces such as bedrooms and bathrooms where promoting relaxation is paramount.

Whether used alone or as part of a scheme, Sunday Stroll is guaranteed to make every day easy like Sunday morning.

Cat’s Cradle

The laid back family need a colour that will wrap around them, making them feel calm, and Cat’s Cradle does just that.

A true neutral with equal amounts of red, yellow and blue undertones, Cat’s Cradle effortlessly turns any space into a sanctuary.

Team with similar neutrals for a sophisticated tonal scheme or add pops of colour in soft furnishings to add a bit of energy into the space.


There’s nothing cosier than sitting in front of an open fire with a good book and a warm drink.

Inglenook, our true taupe, can help to replicate this feeling all year round with its soothing hints of lilac and grey.


Darker hues can work really well for the laid back family. Browns, blacks and charcoal greys can all be used to create calming cocoons.

Saturating your walls and ceiling with our deepest grey Hidey-Hole will create a space that invites you in and offers an escape from the stresses of everyday life.
