Colour of the Month // Ombre Naturelle, by Le Corbusier


This month I have the pleasure of exploring the many and varied effects of Le Corbusier’s Ombre Naturelle. It is an immense, deep grey with warm undertones.

Ombre Naturelle embodies several characters, and is therefore an amazingly flexible colour choice. By it’s nature, it exudes opulence, and in formal living areas will provide a fabulous sense of old world sophistication. Along side crisp whites, neat geometric forms and modernist fittings it shifts to exuding confident masculinity. Yet up against rustic elements it begins to look more natural, evoking memories of Scandinavian woodlands, at once wild, cosy and crisp.

Colour of the Month // Vert, by Le Corbusier


I am so excited to begin the Colour of the Month series! For the first few editions (at least) I’m going to go with colours from Le Corbusier’s Polychromie architectural, purely because it contains the most fabulous and reliably delicious range of colours. All were deveolped by Le Corbusier in the mid twentieth century after [30!] years of testing and careful consideration. I have very closely translated these colours into actual paint colours by Resene so that you can lather your walls with confidence.
