A refreshing interiors palette for summer

, ,

With summer in the air, a natural moment for reflection and re-evaluating our living spaces, Neptune’s new spring summer 2021 collection has been revealed at the perfect time as we look forward to lighter days ahead

Suffolk 5ft dresser with Ink and Burnt Sienna


In partnership with Neptune 

After a long, chilly winter, there’s nothing better than the very first glimpse of a blue sky, or the sun rays through the window. The new season collection at Neptune perfectly captures this. Neptune’s seasonal colour palette of Flax Blue and Burnt Sienna (€49 for 2.5 litre matt emulsion), signifies the blooming petals of the linen flax plant, and the warmth of terracotta sunroofs. We are reminded of the beauty of nature, and the simple pleasures that accompany spring, as we get ready to throw open the garden doors and bask in the sun. The two shades have been chosen to reinvent some of Neptune’s most popular pieces with a seasonal influence, like their Chichester dresser (starting at €1,860), and their Larsson wardrobe (starting at €2,180).

Flax Blue, as described by Martin Lenehan at Neptune by Global Village, is “a shade that can be used anywhere in the home, from the kitchen cabinets to a fresh lick on the bedroom walls, it is a light and easy addition”. While not overstated, Flax Blue will never go unnoticed as a fresh and breezy colour.

Burnt Sienna on the other hand, is one of Neptune’s earthy hues of orange and is the “perfect contrast to Flax Blue”. Burnt Sienna pairs nicely against darker, deeper shades, as seen on Neptune’s Suffolk dresser with Ink, creating a dramatic, yet summery effect, evocative of hot, sun blushed terracotta tiles, or alternatively pair it with Salt, Neptune’s crisp, off-white tone that allows Burnt Sienna to pop.

Bedroom boudoir

With home comforts still at the heart of their design, Neptune have also introduced two new headboards. The Clemmie (single starting at €475) is an intricate, scallop-shaped statement piece, featured in Lara Burnt Sienna fabric. The Montague (double starting at €715) stands as a more minimal piece, created from the traditional Lloyd Loom craft technique to create a frame for the rattan. “Both pieces have the ability to completely transform the bedroom,” says Martin.

Let spring in

Further new products include printed fabrics Lara, Gabriela and Thea (all starting at €75 per metre), perfect for adding texture and a pop of colour and pattern to any piece of furniture, as well as their Ashcroft Butler’s Tray table (starting at €390), a piece that combines traditional style with versatility. Their new Shaftesbury ribbed glass pendant which is classically refined, and adds texture and sophistication to any room (starting at €220), and there is an array of other accessories to pair and decorate with.

Neptune’s SS21 collection is now available online and in store, with the hope to reopen in April.
