Choose life in colour
In a world of grey, the colour is what we see. We look to that ray of sunshine, the bright rainbow stretching across the sky and the beautiful bud of colour on a spring flower. Each touch of colour brightens our day and hints of fresh promise. Colour brings us an intrinsic uplifting sense of hope and optimism.
Nature has long had a strong influence on the colours and materials we choose and Mother Nature's guidance is growing ever stronger. We're seeing a renewed love of honesty in materials, favouring those that come from nature, such as timber. And yet we're also learning that we need to protect the things we love – natural look and wood stain finishes mean our materials continue sharing their natural beauty with us long after they might normally be ravaged by weather and everyday wear and tear.
We've all been reminded of the need to take (or make) time to switch off and tune in to what's really important: our own wellbeing and the health of those we care about. This turn towards self-care and wellness is materialising into a sweeping change of lifestyles and values, and a rethink of how we bring this into the design and decorating of the spaces we live, play and work in.
We're borrowing from the past and reinventing the highlights for today. Our minds are full of memories of innocent years of our own youth, where life remembered with rose-tinted glasses seems desirably simpler. And yet when we borrow from the past, we do so with a modern lens, melding old with new technology and new hues for modern takes on old favourites.
We're taking more care to pick pieces that will be part of our life journey for longer, reinventing them with fresh paint and wood stain colours and thoughtful repairs rather than casting them aside. We're using space smarter, carefully curating the beloved treasures that we surround ourselves with to tell our life story.
We're throwing off the shackles of conformity. The 'rules' haven't just been rewritten; they have been erased. Embrace 'free to be me' and throw colour caution to the wind. Don't choose a trend or a colour just because it is trendy. Choose it because it sings to you. Choose it because it brightens your day and lifts your mood. Choose it because you truly love it.
