This calm and serene blue colour palette from Little Greene is perfect for a coastal look. A lovely group of blues that are truly neutral - with no green or violet undertones - just a subtle grey. I've added a darker navy blue to ground the scheme and provide a strong contrast with the lighter blues.

These soft, muted grey/greens from Farrow & Ball could be used for an indoor/outdoor space. They run from a mid tone green through to white with a dark black/green as an accent colour. Very close to the colours of the aloe plant these greens have subtle blue notes running through to add to their complexity. 

A neutral summer scheme need not look flat and boring as you have the perfect backdrop for layering textures like woven baskets, wicker, wood and natural fibres. This palette of colours from Little Greene is warm and earthy - add a dark accent with a hint of green for that finishing touch.

If you are looking for the lightest of touches in a blue, look no further than this subtle colour scale from Little Greene. Perfect on walls, wooden panelling and even floors for a coastal look. Again, add a darker accent - here a deep saturated blue for depth of colour on a painted piece of furniture beside a bath.

What a fabulous Farrow & Ball dusty pink, paired with a wonderfully nuanced blue. Add a darker blue for contrast and even this on trend wallpaper - "California Sunrise" by Caselio. Your darker accent could be used on window frames, architrave or skirting boards to highlight them as features.

You can't go wrong with the combination of a dark blue and light grey/blue for that summer look! These timeless Farrow & Ball blues work perfectly with warm, grey neutrals for a balanced scheme. Add some striped linen fabric, from Ian Mankin, on soft furnishings for a classic coastal look.

This bright and vibrant Farrow & Ball colour palette was inspired by these stunning tiles by Claybrook. A wonderful partnership of mid tone greens and a neutral with subtle pink undertones. If you're not keen to use these greens on your walls you can use them as accents by painting doors or woodwork.

I love this Miami style pastel combination of colours from Farrow & Ball. They are soft and muted - adding colour to your scheme - though not in an overwhelming way. This gorgeous tile from Fired Earth is the perfect way to add pattern to your summer look - buy a few to use in the centre of your dining table!

If you like a minimalist look - how about this lovely palette of Little Greene colours? Soft, warm neutrals, with a pop of dark blue/black create a smart, contemporary look. Keep the neutral colours on your walls and use your darker accents on painted furniture, like the kitchen units and island, in this image.

Scatter cushions are a great way to add colour and pattern to an otherwise neutral scheme. This Anna French cubist fabric is a wonderful addition with its muted greens and warm, earthy reds. I've created a Farrow & Ball palette to tie in with the fabric creating a small pop of colour and a focal point.
