Repair helps us revive our relationship with nature and embrace a more holistic and ‘circular’ way of living. Our comfortable, carefree existence begins to fade into the past, as we adopt a wabi-sabi sensibility that appreciates the beauty in faults and flaws.

As we heal our rifts with nature, we fill our spaces with humble and authentic tones, inviting in an interplay of beautiful imperfections. The worn and weathered is reborn alongside the new and modern. Optimism and peace is restored.
Mix your well-loved vintage pieces with new, modern furniture items to create a cosy, character-filled space. It’s the flea market finds and hand-me-down furniture that help to build stories and memories.
Soft, natural greens intermingle with authentic neutrals and earthy hues of cinnamon and sienna. A pop of yellow adds an optimistic note to this natural and holistic palette. Colours displayed should be used as a guide for your colour selection. To ensure best accuracy, test your colour choice at home by ordering Dulux Sample Pots and A4 Colour Swatches.
Hues such as Cinnamon Sand can create a warm but natural colour palette that is perfect in a cosy space. Natural linens, rough painted brick and weathered architectural details create a homely and relaxed atmosphere.
Cinnamon Sand is a beautiful warm brown-based orange which is muted, however full of life and joy. This colour is great for a cooler south-facing room or a formal space or study. This works well with a neutral white such as Natural White™ and a deep warm charcoal such as Namadji®.
Repair is about using what you have and making it special through the process of mixing and matching with newer, modern pieces. Look for well-loved vintage items that may need some extra care spent to bring them back to life. Use a backdrop of neutral hues such as Ōhai Half, allowing furniture details to shine.
Uplifting colours smooth out the rough edges with their authentic optimism. Highlight cabinetry with colour you love and pare back strong schemes with natural finishes such as timber and concrete.
Staying within a colour family is an easy way to create a harmonious colour scheme. Combine mustard with yellow-based green and warm timber finishes for a cohesive look and feel.
