Let us introduce you to Otto’s Gold, an opulent, right and classic bold yellow shade from our Proper Good Paint™ range.
One of the more statement tones within this collection, Otto’s Gold feels luxury yet approachable. Its warm undertones are comforting and bring a optimistic energy to a space. In colour psychology, yellow is said to promote happiness more than any other major colour, and is believed to promote analytical thinking, increase mental activity and improve energy levels too – which is why it works so well in a home office or living area.
Some of the most successful colour combinations to match with Otto’s Gold include those you might find in the natural world – think greens, aqua blues, timber or wood effect, as well as natural stone. You may also have noticed that the mustard tones found in Otto, work particularly well with dark blues too, alongside mahogany and for the ever daring – black.
Picture a welcoming hallway, with Otto’s Gold coating the walls, and a stunning natural stone on the floor. We think the warming beige tones found in our natural limestone flooring work particularly well. For that extra luxury feel, go for Bergamo Limestone in Honed Finish, or for those who enjoy the more rustic side of interiors, take a look at Calcot Limestone in Tumbled Finish.
In a dining space, we love seeing Otto’s Gold on the walls, with a brilliant white ceiling. For accessories, pair with a dark stain wooden dining table together with matching chairs, upcycled scaffolding board shelves, wooden sideboard and leafy green house plants.
For those still working from home who want to create an inspiring office (or corner, we know what it’s like to set up a last minute working space at home), why not try the latest trend of painting a half wall? Using Otto’s Gold on the bottom half, and a crisp white on the top to create that strong contrast, you can create a space that feels both homely and motivating. Hang a large circular mirror over the dividing line for that extra special touch of detail.
