With a new year brings new trends and new colours to get excited about, and this January sees the launch of Dulux colour of the year – Tranquil Dawn. A shade of green, that is close to a moss green and is a extremely calming colour. It is also very adaptable and can be used alongside pinks, stones, blues and earthy shades.

‘A colour inspired by the morning sky, to help give homes the human touch’

Similar shades of green are being seen in accessories and furniture. You may not want to necessarily layer green on green, but use this as an accent to create your space.We love the combination of pink & green, especially if you’re using it on a wall. Pink tableware and ceramics can also compliment a green wall and then add terracotta’s, yellows and blues to build up a gorgeous pallette.

Jumping on the colourful back of ‘it’ colour millennial pink, we have a new shade in town for 2020 – neo mint.

Not a shade many will put as first choice for a room colour or furniture fabric, but bear with us. This bright, mint colour is described as ‘an oxygenating, fresh tone that harmonises science and technology with nature’.

It’s a calming colour that will work well with our hectic lives and give us positive vibes.

We are starting to see it online in accessories and wallpapers, as well as chairs and some larger pieces like sofas. Of course we wouldn’t imagine anyone would go mint throughout a whole room, but we suggest adding accents alongside paler shades.

Neo Mint may not be for all, but keep an eye out as you may become to love it!

As quite often with trends they come and go, and then come back again, and one of those is marble. With so many marble products available it’s coloured examples we look at today.

Gone is the white marble and in comes black, green and pink. You will start to see this on coffee tables, kitchenware, shelving and lighting. This material works really nicely with mixed metal & black accents.

Marble also goes beyond table tops and can be seen on home accessories including clocks, bookends and coasters. Get your little marble fix without breaking the bank.
