home: trend [ colours of 2018 ]
Every year we are given a top colour from the big names in paint, and every year we ponder on whether to follow the trend or stay well away! This time around there is a mixed bag with the one everyone is talking about from Pantone – Ultra Violet.
Love it or hate it, it’s refreshing to see Pantone share a daring shade to get us all discussing. It’s not a paint colour that many are going to go crazy for, but don’t rule it out. Accenting a room with accessories or soft furnishing in a purple tone will certainly bring a new dimension to a room and make a statement.
Farrow & Ball and Dulux have opted for a more safe colour pallete for 2018. F&B has launched Drop Cloth, a dark cream that brings warmth to a room.
‘We’ve named this colour Drop Cloth in honour of all the painters and decorators who have worked with Farrow & Ball paints for so long, as it’s the traditional name for a dust sheet. The colour has a subtle touch of mystery about it’
Drop Cloth is a great backdrop to put on your walls, allowing for stronger accents and accesories of colour to stand out and compliment. We love this colour for its subtle and understated finish.
Dulux bring us Heart Wood, a warm neutral tone with a touch of heather. Combine with other natural colours for a relaxed, balanced space or try navy blue and gold for a luxury feel. This colour can cover a large space and not feel overwhelming, and would actually work in any room.
