Colour Trends for 2018

According to the paint brand Dulux, the shade for 2018 is a muted heather-grey.

The company has declared that its colour of the year for 2018 is Heart Wood, which sits somewhere between smoky taupe and dusky mauve.  It’s a warm neutral with a hint of heather and although most people think of neutrals as being black, white, grey, brown and beige, this versatile shade also fits the bill.

80 colour experts meet together with professionals including social and economic forecasters as well as architects and tech leaders to pin down ‘the mood of the moment’

They consider what is happening in the world and how we behave – like where we go on holiday, what we’re buying, any political or wellbeing influences and their conclusion this year was of ‘instability’

Uncertain times

“We don’t trust the news, we don’t know what’s going to happen next,

we have divisions in our society and it’s affecting how we’re living”

says Marianne Shillingford, Dulux’s creative director.

“So, we are taking comfort in our home, where we can feel safe, secure and nurtured.

We can control how it looks, who comes there and how we interact with the world from it”

Heart Wood links perfectly with many textures and materials and is a useful addition to the existing trend for nude pink, deep indigo and warm metals like copper and brass, but more conventionally, it also works well with off-white or soft beige.

Top Window Dressing Trends for 2016

Looking for a fresh and new style in your home?

Window dressing is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to update your home

Window dressing is one of the most easiest and fastest ways to update your rooms – and won’t break the bank!

This year’s interiors are all about a chic modern look, and what better way to achieve that than with some stylish new blinds.  Here are our top tips to achieve the look:Keep it Simple

Keep it Simple

Less is more when it comes to choosing your window dressing.  Use clean and simple lines to enhance the space available and avoid a cluttered look.  Cassette Blinds and Vertical Panel Blinds are an ideal solution for achieving the simplistic look, while still offering privacy and maximum light.

Use Patterns Wisely

Use texture and tone to create warmth in a room rather than cluttering things up with too many complex patterns. That doesn’t mean you need to avoid bold designs, but try to choose colours that will compliment the window view all year around.  Roller Blinds  are ideal for adding some pattern to a colour scheme.
