Sometimes when talking to clients I find myself using the term 'linen colour scheme' which is met with a blank stare - who can blame them really seeing as though it's a totally made-up term and makes absolutely no sense to anyone but me! Basically, it encapsulates a beautiful, subtle palette made up of gorgeous neutral tones in greys, beiges and whites. So soothing, so calming, so restrained, so sublime! It makes for such a great canvas onto which you can throw almost any accent colour you like.
Here are some lovely examples to drool over :)
