Tonal Combinations

When pairing colours with a dominant shade it’s always best to pair with tonal combinations as it will create a cohesive and well balanced interior design scheme.

It has green and blue undertones, so look at pairing with differing shades of green and cool tones of blue, or bolder hues such as navy blue to introduce some much needed definition to the colour scheme.

It will pull the colour scheme together and give a grounding effect to the look.

For a calming feel in a room, pair Mizzle with soft, creamy whites.

Creamy tones like Farrow and Ball’s “Wimborne White” or “Slipper Satin” will blend seamlessly with Mizzle, creating an ethereal and airy feel.

The subtle interplay of these light hues will open up your space, inviting in a sense of serenity and comfort.

You may choose to pair a white like this with Mizzle on areas such as on a ceiling, or above it on a half wall panelling look.

This will create a crisp contrast and immediately draw the eye up as you enter the room, giving the illusion of a bigger space.

Dusty Pinks

As Mizzle carries very soft, almost pastel like tones, it’s perfect for pairing with like shades such as dusty pinks.

The subtle contrast between the coolness of Mizzle and the warmth of pinks, such as Farrow and Ball’s “Setting Plaster” or “Cinder Rose,” will create an interior that feels both enchanting and inviting.

As Farrow and Ball Mizzle has a slightly blue undertone to it, pairing with shades of blue will create a cohesive and tonal colour scheme.

If Mizzle is the dominant colour in your scheme, you only want to introduce blue as an accent colour. Introduce it through a beautiful ticker stripe on a sofa like this, on curtains, cushions or throws.

  1. My kitchen cabinets are painted in mizzle green and walls are off white. It is a kitchen cum dining room. What contrast colour should I use on a dresser in the dining room to make it stand out. Thank you.

    • I’d either go for a defining colour I’d look at railings or Tar – love this on units. If you want something with a bit of colour and to make a statement, go for a warm terracotta something like Red Earth or Fox Red.

  2. Hi, I have a fairly open plan living room/ dining room . The living room section has much less light than the dining room . I was thinking of Mizzle in the living room with Peignoir in the dining room . Would these colours blend well ?

    • Hi Francesca, YES! These colours work really well together, I do tend to recommend using the same colour in an open plan space if it’s not divided by a door or wall though because it helps to create a more cohesive pull through the spaces. Alternatively, it’s worth considering a warmer colour that could be used in both spaces, Skimming Stone is a warm modern neutral that works well in most lights. Nicole x
