Near Neutrals

Near Neutrals

While grey is an important pure neutral tone for interiors, we have a range of beige and taupe shades within our playmat collection, known as Near Neutrals. These calming shades offer a subtle background, ideal for styling against focal, warm textures or bolder colours.

Near Neutrals are made by mixing a pure neutral (black, grey, white or brown) with a touch of a primary colour (blue, red or yellow.) Choosing whether you prefer a brown or grey tinted Near Neutral will help you choose the playmat for you.
