A neutral palette is every designers go to, however it isn't quite that easy to pull off. To create the feeling of warmth and comfort when using whites, the trick is to layer the subtle tones and textures throughout the space. Texture brings shading and the tactility necessary for comfort - it is the human condition to be contented when surrounded by a soft, relaxing and serene environment.

Neutrals also help to make space feel light filled and large, by exploring materiality with interesting profiles such as timber, or the gentle embossed patterns found in Axolotl Concrete and Terracotta you can still add plenty of interest and edge to the space.

Zinc has the remarkable ability to embody both cool and warm tones and can transform depending on its application and surroundings. We consider zinc the opposite of the sterile stainless steel that we have come to know in modern times. This trend exemplifies how metallic tones can be utilised to create soft and layered designs, tying in beautifully with natural timbers, plush carpets and soft furnishings. This palette can be successfully incorporated into new or heritage projects, products such as Axolotl Lustre glass with a soft reflective nature can be utilised internally on feature walls and splash backs, Axolotl Metal and Sheet Metals can clad façades or doors externally. But of course these products can be utilised in many other ways, view our gallery to get inspired, or use your imagination, the options are endless.
