50 shades of... colour! by Jill Barrett

Posted on 13 February 2018

We are knee-deep in ‘trade show season’, which is something we look forward to every year - it’s our chance to get out of the shop and see all the lovely new trends and designs for this year.

This year has lived up to all our expectations - finally we seem to be out of the grey austere winter shades and into some wonderfully vibrant colours. A great example of this is the Pantone Colour of the Year, ’Ultra Violet’, which represents communicates "originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future.” Who knew!

This is beautifully illustrated by the gorgeous ‘Waterperry’ collection by one of our firm favourites, Sanderson.

So that's the "Colour of the Year", but I'm starting to see bolder colours more and more, encouraging people to become a bit more adventurous and individual in their home. So, for more ways to brighten up your life, there is the ‘Zapara’ collection from Harlequin, the stunning ‘Library’ collection from Blendworth, and the cheerful ‘Pepino’ duvet cover and accessories from Scion.  All great ways to make a statement!

Now, if all this colour is just a bit too much for you AND you’re a William Morris lover, then I have some fantastic news. You might remember the lighter and brighter Pure Collection, inspired by the huge archives of the William Morris & Co - “offering fresher renditions of iconic classics, better suited for the modern home”. Well ….. one of our long established suppliers, Bedeck, have brought these classic designs into their range of high quality soft and sumptious duvet covers!  Created with honesty and simplicity in mind, these neutral fabrics offer a relaxed sanctuary to come home to after a long day.  This have just arrived with us, just in time to lift your spirits after a long, cold winter!!
