Inspiration – Oatmeal

Oatmeal is always a favoured colour in my design schemes – it’s the perfect shade to balance warmer hues in a room and it also adds warmth to cooler tones.

It’s a very liveable colour and it looks great in the form of rumpled linens on a bed. upholstered onto a tailored piece of furniture or as an accent throw in a room. Farrow & Ball have some of the best oatmeal paint colours from Shadow White and Shaded White to my new favourite Drop Cloth. Knubb-ily (apparently not a real word!) weaves or those with a herringbone pattern are classic materials that will stand the test of time.

At this cooler time of year, nothing – in my humble opinion – beats a bowl of steaming porridge to start your day. Actually, who am I kidding, I have porridge 12 months of the year. It’s genetic.

Watch this space as I’m currently in the throws (no pun intended) of designing some 100% Shetland wool throws. I am working with an amazing mill in Scotland and can’t wait to finalize the designs and colours. One of the colours is guaranteed to be oatmeal!
