Fusion April Colour Story

This month, we’re taking inspiration from Easter and Spring with a collection of neutral and pastel colours with a pop of blue. Featuring Putty, Pebble, Picket Fence, Heirloom, Seaside and Soap Stone.


Welcome to April’s Colour Story from Fusion Mineral Paint. Whilst we know April can bring some showers, rain often comes with a feeling of possibility after it passes and we wanted to take a moment to appreciate the beauty this time of year can bring. Spring is often a time of transformation.

This is the month where we dust off the outdoor furniture, give everything a good clean and think about how to revive our surroundings. Maybe a new throw pillow or possibly a new wall colour? Imagine fresh, crisp linens on your bed, windows open letting in that brisk air and finally getting to sit outside and enjoy a cup of tea on a porch, watching the dew over the grass glisten in the morning sunlight.

April’s Colour Story is all about that soothing vibe the evokes a breath of fresh air that this change of season brings and features colours from Fusion’s best selling Penney & Co Collection.


In our inspiration photo for April’s Colour Story, you can find this comforting paint colour collection reflected throughout the space. From Heirloom on the bed throw to hints of Seaside mixed in on the throw pillows, your eye then catches Soap Stone on the ottoman. Putty and Pebble can be found on the whitewashed wood pallet walls with faux taxidermy to tie in that caramel colour on the pillows that complements all the blues featured throughout the space. Tying it all in, but still letting the accent colours shine, is the dresser turned side table with the light bright white reflected in Picket Fence.

By increasing the presence of any of these colours, you can change the entire atmosphere of the palette. As a result, you can utilise this neutral palette in any sort of situation: modern or farmhouse; warm or cool; cosy or minimalist.

Everywhere you look, each colour works with the next one and is picked up in the patterns and textures throughout the space, reminiscent of a luxury Bed & Breakfast – except you can recreate this look for your own home. We know this makes us want to run and refresh our bedrooms pronto!


Explore The Colours


This sophisticated neutral blends beige and grey and grounds any colour scheme. It is truly the perfect greige. Classic, vintage, modern, you name it – it works with every decor aesthetic. Pair with it soft greens for a natural feel or with bright blues for some fun!


A warm yet eye catching grey, it is a great stand alone colour but works will with other warm tones as well. Pebble is what we call a welcoming grey and pairs well with blues and greens for a lush and natural feel. You can also go modern by pairing it with Casement and our Brushed Steel Metallic.


This lovely bright white is a staple colour for any room that needs a punch of light. Picket Fence is a true white – just like the white picket fence you’re thinking of. It doesn’t feel more like Spring than imagining that surrounded by yellow flowers and tulips! You can pair it with softer neutrals to make it stand out or use it as a backdrop for more bright colour.


Our cosy vintage blue, perfect for giving new life to hand me down pieces in need of some love. It’s traditional, attractive and perfect for a refresh. Everyone who tries Heirloom falls in love with it! A little bit blue and a touch of green, Heirloom is cool, calm, and collected.


Everyone’s favourite deep grey, Soap Stone is one of those colours that is totally dependent on its surroundings. A slight purple undertone encourages creativity and charm and this grey will change its hues, dependent on the light that reflects it. It is close to a slate grey but a bit warmer.


Warm and golden, this tarnished gold adds luxury, depth and character to any piece. Mustard is a rich, deep yellow, and can almost be considered a jewel tone. It is perfect as both a bold statement and as a darker neutral.
