As 2019 comes rolling in, so does a burst of energy and optimism in our lives. Sitting still isn’t an option and people are more than ready for action! Our goal is to create a space which reflects this sense of awakening, embracing the positivity in our lives. A home where thoughts turn to actions and dreams to realities, a home where we, and others,Can let the light in!
Our colour of the year, Spiced Honey, lies at the perfect conjunction of ‘stimulating’ and ‘calming’, truly capturing the essence of our “Let the Light In” theme. While its ochre tones resonate optimism and confidence, lending it a certain stimulating energy, its earthy mid-brown and burgundy tones balance it out by representing the calmer, softer side of this contemporary colour.
The THINK home creates an atmosphere of calm and claritywhere we feel free to be ourselves. It’s a simple contemporary space, combining hotel chic with real-home warmth. The THINK dweller spends time at home to re-boot their brain, away from the sensory overload of the outside world. They love to be surrounded with a careful edit of inspiring objects and art. The relaxed paint colour palette has our warming, honey-hued Colour of the Year at its heart, combined with an inviting mix of rich neutrals and touches of soft pink, intense burgundy and sophisticated deep blue. Polished woods, mid-century furniture, graphic rugs and textiles emphasise the smart, yet soothing, coherence of the look.
The DREAM home creates a space where we can be still and silent. Somewhere to sit and drift in perfect peace, to become lost in the moment and to wonder ‘what if?’ The DREAM home dweller loves the way their surroundings allow them to stop rushing and relish the here and now. They appreciate a home that is elegant but relaxed, with whimsical playful touches. The dream palette is serene and grown up, yet soft and warm.
A gently muted mix of romantic powder pinks and blues create calm, with our honey-toned Colour of the Year bringing depth and sophistication to the look. Plain pale woods,simple hand-thrown vessels and pretty fabrics add to the contemplative, centred feel of this home.
The LOVE home creates a happy and welcoming ‘open house’ atmosphere, where we can surround ourselves with the people and things that matter to us. The LOVE home dweller cherishes things that have a special meaning for them and this is reflected in the offbeat and unusual objects that adorn their rooms, as well as the lush plants that they like to nurture. This palette, our warmest of 2019, is filled with richly pigmented shades including deep forest green, bold teal and intense terracotta red, tempered by our honey-inspired Colour of the Year and pale neutrals. With wooden furniture and botanical prints, it all goes to create a relaxed yet cosy home that’s perfect for sharing with loved ones.
Home can be a place that sparks action and allows you to give things a try, whatever the outcome. It’s the four walls that listen when you first voice an idea, where you solve a problem under the jets of the shower. The ACT home dweller is bold and brave but also fun and uncomplicated. They look to their home to charge them up with energy and momentum. The playful pop-y palette combines vivid red and green with paler pink and blue, underlined by crisp greys and whites. The golden tones of our honeyed Colour of the Year ensure that the palette stays warm and inviting. This home is brought to life with reclaimed furniture that has been painted and personalised by the owners. Bold graphic shapes, low-key cork and plywood with vintage rugs, create a space that inspires action.
