IF HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS, LET’S CALIBRATE IT FOR CALM

New season interior paint colours to style your entire home for tranquility.


Now the only Australian family-owned paint company, Haymes Paint continues to inspire with an evocative new collection of serene colours that inspire calm and beckon moments of introspection, whilst still hitting interior trends.



‘Calibrate’ Volume 13 of the Haymes colour library takes us on a journey away from the stressors of the built-up world and all the associated technology, to deliver a trio of palettes that use colours to deliberately summon restful experiences of interior spaces.


“Finding a balance is among the many demands of our everyday lives and is where we need to find our equilibrium.”


Touches of trending hues such as mint and terracotta are evident, observed earlier this year in design week in Milan by Haymes Colour and Concept Manager Wendy Rennie. Interspersed throughout are clever neutrals that serve as visual resting points yet draw subtle tones from each of three well-rounded palettes.


1. Equilibrium – Oxygenating and fresh

“Studies show that colour has a psychological effect on our interiors,” says Wendy, who repainted her entire kitchen over from red after she had children. Haymes offers a colour style service to get the best results for each household. “Things can be functional, representational and still beautiful. The ones you push boundaries with are those you’re the most happy with,” Wendy suggests.



Colour names are meant to assist when building a colour scheme. Wendy takes joy in naming the colours for how they make you feel when you see them, such as ‘Refuge’ and ‘Dream’, a colour which, she says, “Is a really floaty, nice neutral.”


In a nice nod to the longevity and traditions of a family-owned business, some colours are named for the members of the Haymes family and their personal relationships to things and people who come into contact with the process – even the accountant has a colour!
