The romantic allure of the colour blush can swoon just about anyone. Soft and charming, this pretty shade works as a neutral backdrop colour without overwhelming your space. For those who love matching appliances to interior themes, you are in for a treat! Keep the room light yet playful with Solar Sonic in Blush. Nothing is worse than having an automated laundry system that does not fit. Fret not, book a free site measurement to confirm the fit before purchasing it. 

Grey (Solar Pro in Eclipse)

Grey is another tricky colour to work with – too dark and it becomes dull, too light and it is not far off from white. Surprisingly, this versatile shade works with an assortment of colours, from dark ones like black to neutral tones like beige. Play it up with gradients for an elegant interior that never goes out of style. Not vibing with a dark theme? The Solar Pro comes in White and Silver too. 

Teal (Solar Pro in White)

Fun fact: Teal is a colour for restfulness. Despite the zen mood, it is also a great choice for those who prefer loud colours over subtle shades. This dramatic hue pairs great with Solar Pro in white, creating a calm background for the contrast to pop out against the neutral colour. 

Rust (Solar Pro in White)

When minimalist colour palettes become mundane, it is time to make way for bold choices. The epitome of fall colour, rust is an earthy shade that oozes cosiness. As uncommon as it may be, rust goes well with various neutral tones such as white, cream and even light wood furnishing.
