Bang on Trend with Colour


Bang on trend seems to be the in-phrase at the moment; trends come and go but as I see it there seems to be a move away from the bland magnolias to embracing colour in all its forms.

I may have recently written a post about the new colours from Farrow and Ball here, and of course you all know I have just painted my living room in a deep blue which is truly delicious, but I have been asked by Kent Blaxill, prime stockist of Farrow and Ball, to widen your horizons with colour matching.  Go off piste and add those fabulous brighter hues to add that pop and zing to a scheme.    Deepen those neutral walls to a dark grey, deep red or even a dark brown.  It’s amazing once you try, how colour can transform a once rather dull space.

Farrow and Ball’s key colours for this year are a reflection of the landscape and the seashore bringing a hint of nature back into our homes using colours such as Cooking Apple Green, Stiffkey Blue, Purbeck Stone and Mole’s Breath.

Bring in the brights, a perfect time to update that neglected space using colour in a way that heightens the senses and makes one smile, Arsenic, Citron, St Giles Blue, Yellow Cake, Nancy’s Blushes and Charlotte’s Locks.

But if you really do love the paler shades there are a myriad of whites to choose from the brighter end of the scale to the slubbier hues at the other.

If redecorating a whole room is not on the agenda then how about a weekend project of updating a piece of furniture bringing it back to life and creating a new focus for the room that it is situated in.

So why not pick up those paint brushes over this Easter break and give your home a Spring spruce up and yes you can buy Farrow and Ball brushes from Kent Blaxill too!
