Here are all of our standard colors ever since we started working with Katzkin.  Everything is still hand sewn in house, but I was so impressed with the quality of their leather!!  We still offer Spinneybeck for those who have an odd color or the desire to pay 4-5x extra for the interior...
1st page and a half are standard, anything beyond that has a small premium.

Wow, that's an impressive array of colors, Carey. 

Lane, I know you're leaning toward Oxblood and/or brown, but for me grey looks awesome against a blue exterior, especially when you'll have some blue visible on the inside: parts of the door, dash, A-pillars, but especially the door sill. 

Good luck deciding, with Carey's myriad of interiors it'll be a tough decision.

I have to admit that I’ve started looking at some darker browns as a possible alternative to oxblood.

Stan was alluding to this in his post above- from a design perspective, when putting colors together, usually when 1 color is quite strong (your car will be an attention grabber from the moment you see it, even from a block or more away!), as is your exterior Oslo blue, what generally works best in the interior is something that, even if it's quite different, is something that's a little 'softer' or more 'neutral'. Putting 2 colors together, both which are screaming for attention, is harder to do. It can be done, but it will be a real hit/miss thing, with the results not known until it's too late. The red interior of the Spyder Chris showed above works because the silver, even with a blue hue, is somewhat softer or 'unassertive'. The same with Gordon Nichol's Speedster- that wow red/wine/burgandy interior of his is surrounded by a more neutral exterior (in this case white).

If you are thinking of a brown interior, something along the lines of what either Alan Merklin or Wingd gave examples of, note that the exterior paint of none of those cars are strong attention grabbing, look at me! colors. Even though they're all gorgeous in their own right, they're somewhat subdued compared to their respective interiors. With a strong interior color in your car there will just be too much going on. Look for something a little softer and it will be stunning. 

Hope this helps. Al

I am going with more of a Charcoal gray, but as seen in this pic, that lighter gray just pops out. Kinda like the 50's customs with their white interiors …blaubl

What I found really helped me in choosing my colour is to goto the leather manuf site. The reason is that a palette like the one above does not always clearly tell you what is the root of the colour and it  may have hues of a base colour that you won't see until it is too late.  Ever paint a wall and you thought it was green and you find some blue in it. 


Well the site showed  me the root of the colour and hence I found the root of some colours we were considering had roots/tones that we feared would come out.

Check it out .

Good of you to offer choices Carey but cat skins seem a little much.   

 

Here is the colour chart I was speaking of https://www.spinneybeck.com/in...colorbook/categories

 

CLick on the side for a type of leather 

VO0957    This is the VOLO in my car.

BTW the sample looks a bit dark here on scrren here is also a pict of my interior.

FYI I have had this in two IM's so far.

It looks good and ages well and won't show deep cracks like the deep red colours

Lane.... Your welcome to do what you want but it may give you some ideas.

Thanks Bob, my daughter helped, me to choose the body colour and put together all the colour combination of interior and top colours.  We were going for a classic look.   Henry loved it.  Actually, another IM in England has pretty much the same colour palette.   Sure am happy IM has returned to building cars.
