Design Inspiration: Blue walls are the big colour trend for 2017

We love blue walls at Colourandpaint.com and have been adding to our blue colour story for the last couple of seasons. In fact blues feature in all of our designer paint colour palettes. In order to help our customers  to work with colour combinations we have collaborated with interior designer Yasmin Chopin on putting colour palettes together from our full range of colours.

They wanted a mini gym included in their home […]

Dulux choose a denim Blue as Colour Of The Year 2017

We are huge fans of blue at colourandpaint.com (we have 40 different hues!). So we are delighted to see that Dulux has nominated “Denim Drift” as their colour of the year.  So why blue for 2017? ‘Blue is the colour of life; it is the clothes we wear, the sky we gaze at and the water that revitalises us,’ say Dulux.’Blue has been, and will continue to be, a constant in every aspect of our lives.

Zandra Rhodes’ apartment is a riot of colour says ES Magazine.

Zandra Rhodes’ apartment is a riot of colour says ES Magazine.

ES Magazine, one of our favourite publications along with sister paper The Evening Standard (I’m still amazed that publications of this quality are free) is always a great source of interior design inspiration. In today’s edition commissioning interiors editor Dee Acharya takes a look at Sandra Rhodes Bermondsey apartment and not surprisingly, it is a riot of colour. Dee describes Dame Zandra’s style as “maximalist” as every surface is covered in collections of some sort from stones and crystals from the Atlas Mountains to Carol McNicol ceramics. The walls are citrus and the Amtico venial flooring is is hot-pink. In the article […]

Choosing the perfect colour scheme for any room

Choosing the perfect colour scheme for any room

Colour schemes effect how we feel. What colour is your bedroom? Might sound like a rather odd question, especially when we’ve only just met, but actually the colour of a room can convey certain emotions. The infographic below by Fit My Bedroom looks at the anatomy of colours, from hues to tones and shades. It then moves onto the psychology of colour, which colours convey which emotions. So, for example, if you had a room painted in Crazy Horse by Fleur, your room would make people feel a mixture of joy, creativity and maybe even sophistication. On the other hand, Forest Oak by Liberty would make […]

Liberty bursting with spring colour

Our favourite shop’s windows are bursting with beautiful bright spring colours. The colour in this window is Mallow. Liberty is the home of colour and design and the spring windows show this off to wonderful effect. Elsewhere in store the effect is repeated across the product ranges and interiors department. We spotted Montbretia –  one of the colours from our Liberty Art Fabrics Paint collection (a bold coral red) used to great effect in the furniture department. If you are thinking about using strong colours a visit to this wonderful emporium of great design is always worthwhile for spot of inspiration. […]
