Lughnasa Colour Story - Coordinating Paints & Fabrics

In this post, I wanted to share with you coordinating interior paints and fabrics which work beautifully with the Lughnasa Deadly Nightshade collection.

One of the cornerstone's of the decision making process for my Deadly Nightshade Collection was to be able to suggest a range of interior's paints and plain furnishing fabrics that would compliment my collection.

I have put together a short list below of paints and fabrics which can be used alongside my designs, to help you build a layered and cohesive interiors space. And even, if you decide the options I have given are not for you - they will certainly act as a starting point to catapult you forward with your colour confidence!

The Colour-Story 

Lughnasa (pronouced 'Loo-na-sa') is a Gaelic festival marking the beginning of the harvest season. Historically, the festival starts on 01 August and was an occasion of dancing, feasting and the lighting of bonfires. This joyous warm palette is inspired by golden suns, dusty pink sunsets and the glorious teals of a clear summer midnight sky.

Featuring poisonous Deadly Nightshade flowers, berries, alongside poisonous Cinnabar Moths, bees and ladybirds.  You can look, but don't touch! 😜


PAINTS - The Pickleson Paint Company

Below are paint colours by The Pickleson Paint Co. that are perfect partners for my fabrics and wallpapers. I used samples of their paints to colour-match my fabrics and wallpapers.  You can order samples from their website.

The Pickleson Paint Co. was born from a desire to create beautiful paint that’s truly sustainable. They do everything they can to make sure the paint doesn’t harm the people who use it or the environment, whilst giving them the opportunity to transform their home. They're here to provide you with genuinely amazing paint. Great coverage, quick drying and non-toxic.

What I also love about them, is that the paint samples provided on painted paper - you do not get a pot of paint. This is really important to me, as pots of paint (although the pot is likely to be recycle-able), the paint is not -  so if you don't use it all up and take it to your local recycling centre, the pots of paint either end up in landfill or incinerated. With the paper samples, you can recycle them or use them for a craft project. Yay!

Of course you do not need to use this exact paint or company, but the colours will hopefully start you thinking about what would work alongside my wallpapers and fabrics.
