One of the clearest lines of development in the interior decor area is the movement towards coloured walls. Bye bye boring white! In particular, dramatic darks and – a new favourite of mine, even called the “new white” recently – the colour spectra with names like ‘nude’, ‘sunrise’ and ‘sand’. Light neutrals encompassing sandy light browns to pale sunrise yellows….A neutral but warm and uplifting background for many styles. This, dear friends, is a “trend colour” I firmly believe in.
For furniture and details it’s a well-used, even traditional, colour (just think of all light wood and leather) but for walls, trick is to find the right hue. I’m actually into it right now – our bedroom wall is currently a patchwork of four sandy shades. (Will come back on the exact colour choice later).
