Green – a colour that needs no introduction.

From rich olives to soothing sage, greens have blessed our interiors more than ever over the past year as we seek to inject into our homes a refreshing, relaxing, organic feel.

Quince is Neptune’s new-season spring shade.

Pleasingly uplifting, with a crisp, yellow-toned character, it brings freshness to contemporary and traditional interiors alike.

At once antique and modern, serene and invigorating, it pairs beautifully with natural wood and marble, and is equally at home in a dining room as it is in a study.

Victoria Twinberrow, our Neptune design expert, discusses ways to update a spring scheme with Quince’s chartreuse hues.

Quince mood board


If you typically lean towards a neutral palette, balance Quince with something softer.

Pare down Quince walls in a sunny sitting room with woodwork in Shell – from skirting boards and ceilings to statement cabinetry like the Chawton modular unit – and pale linens for spring freshness.

In Shell kitchens, a Quince island or larder is a stunning centrepiece finished with copper or black handles.

In bedrooms, the clean, elegant lines of Neptune’s new Aldwych wardrobe in Shell are brightened with playful touches of Quince in Odette cushions (available in-store), upholstered headboards like the George and window treatments.

The brightest of spring colour combinations, Snow used in tandem with Quince is both uplifting and fresh.

Dial it down with oak furniture in a dining room – think Neptune’s Moreton dining table and Wardley spindle-back chairs left natural, or painted in contrasting custom colours.

In a home office, the partnership is both bright and invigorating, best when Snow walls and wooden floors are warmed by a Quince desk, bookcase or shelving unit.

In a conservatory or garden room, team with woven rattan furniture like the Chelsea for a light, modern look.

Warm Black

In both contemporary and traditional interiors, Quince and Warm Black - another new paint shade from Neptune with its deep, liquorice tones - are natural bedfellows.

Add drama to a sitting room scheme with the blackened steel and glass coffee tables of the Coniston collection, or sit a Chawton sideboard painted in Warm Black against a Quince wall.

Quince kitchen cabinetry is perfectly paired with black worktops and the black frames of Neptune’s Quince prints.

Add Far East flair to a Quince bedroom scheme with a Warm Black Aldwych wardrobe and dressing table.

Evoke French country charm with Quince used in tandem with Saffron, Neptune’s rich, earthy yellow.

Perhaps the most surprising of colour combinations, dial down the rich yellows with Ink or Navy accents – think panelling or cabinetry in a dining room or kitchen, or walls in a masculine bedroom.

Quince and Aqua Blue

Aqua Blue

There’s something of the Alpine about Quince when its green tones are paired with the green notes of Aqua Blue.

Against a backdrop of Aqua Blue walls, add Florence cushions in Odette fabric to a neutral sofa.

Or flip the balance with Quince walls and accents of this versatile green-blue in lamps, throws and cushions.

We love the new Jane Apple Blossom Lampshade, available in-store, which brings both shades together with the warmth of old rose.

Deepen an Aqua Blue and Quince bedroom scheme with textiles in the grey-blue of Harry or Chloe linens in Mineral, and intersperse with Florence cushions in darker Denim.
