Eau de nil & dusty pink

Eau de nil & dusty pink

We love these pastel colours of eau de nil greens and dusty pinks, pale greys and soft lavenders. They are colours that are soft on the eye and easy to blend with other pastel shades. You can also add some dashes of bolder tones and accessories for a more striking effect. The mood board we created features Laura Ashley wallpapers and fabrics in dusty pinks and eau de nil pastel greens. Eau de nil literally translated means 'water of the Nile', a soft gentle blend of barely there blue, green and grey to give the soft gentle colour of this pale washed green.

Look isn't this great!  We've actually found an Eau de Nil pumpkin! Very seasonal and doesn't it go beautifully with our current range of dusty pink and eau de nil green ceramic cupboard knobs.  These shabby chic ceramic knobs have been specially designed for us by our in-house designer Emilie and these and other cupboard knobs can be found on our website under Exclusively Emilie.

Finding accessories in dusty rose brings a lovely warm feeling to a room.  Even flowers like these hydrangeas adds such a beautiful colour especially when combined with natural neutral shades.

vintage tea set

Why not take some time to look for some dusky colour accents or even find some antique pieces to create a similar feeling.  We found this lovely tea pot and matching cup and saucer in an antique shop on one of our travels.

We often mix these dusty pink and eau de nil green colours with pale grey which many homeowners find is the perfect neutral scheme.  This mixed set of six ceramic drawer knobs that we have created is another one of our best selling lines, click here to see further details on our website.

Eau de Nil is probably not the first colour you would think of for your kitchen but in fact it has such a great neutral tone and works really well for a kitchen. If you are thinking about introducing these colours to your kitchen have a look at what we've found available from Smeg, isn't this such a beautiful looking fridge. They've even paired it will a dusty pink tall bin!  Imagine how lovely our set of cupboard knobs in eau de nil green and dusty pink and pale grey would look on your kitchen cupboards and drawers with this cool fridge.
