Colour of the Year
The budding interior designers or DIY-ers amongst you may be aware that Dulux’s Colour of the Year for 2018 is Heart Wood. A calming colour with lilac hues which encourages tranquillity in daily environments, an essential tool for creating a welcoming atmosphere.
2019’s colour, ‘Spiced Honey’ has been selected due to its ability to capture optimism and confidence. It is a mood-lifting ochre with the warmth of a mid-brown. Dulux claims that soft but serious colours can feel quietly supportive. Perhaps the reason why this timeless classic colour is being seen worldwide in architecture and interior design.

The Finishing Touches
So, you’ll have chosen the perfect colour combination and furniture to match. The room you’re upgrading will need some kind of sun and light protection, as well as privacy, of course. The finishing touches to your new room can make the biggest of differences.
Think about it. Do you want blackout blinds in the bedroom? Something to soften the sun’s glare through the glass roof or windows? These are the practicalities. But there are different colours, materials and sizes available to match the requirements of your dreamy new room. We offer bespoke solutions to all kinds of shading, noise and light reduction and privacy with our product range. With a variety of colours, we are sure we will find one to match or compliment the scheme. Let us help you to create a unique haven in your new room ready for 2019.

Once the interior design is complete, your next project could involve development of your outdoor areas as the spring approaches, ready for summer.
How about a retractable roof pergola or automated awnings? You can bring the inside outside in summer, and as the cool nights reappear, bring the outside inside.
