Trends change and also return, as we are seeing right now. Magnolia was once an interior colour of choice in many homes in the 80s & 90s. Now this off white shade is back but with an update and we are calling it vanilla.

Bright white has its place in homes but tends to need a lot of up keep and can be seen as quite cold. Choosing an off white shade will bring warmth to a space, and layering up furniture and soft furnishings creates depth and cosiness.

Texture and pattern will give interest to this colour in soft furnishings and accessories. Combine with other neutral colours and use black as an accent for a stand out look.

Vanilla is not boring, it’s bold!
