The collection combines historical muted pinks with much bolder shades such as Cape Red and Carmine – a significant 1960s colour as identified by English Heritage research.


Their latest offering – the Green collection, launched in 2018 – is the result of another extensive paint research project undertaken in National Trust houses and gardens throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland to find original colours, and to tell the stories of the people who first enjoyed them. It comprises 31 beautiful greens, each with a noteworthy origin, and each with an important place in contemporary interior design.


But if you feel like taking things a little further why not consider a wallpaper? Wallcovering manufacturers have definitely caught on that not everyone wants a feature wall, and that not every room can take a large pattern. There are a whole host of fabulous textures on offer, as well as some delightfully subtle prints. Mind you, if you do like to make a statement there are some truly mouth-watering papers to choose from. Geometric designs are very much in evidence, along with more daring use of colour than we have seen for many a year.


There are of course many other ways to refresh your home without spending a fortune. The humble cushion is often overlooked, but can become a little hero when it comes to adding pizzazz.


You may have found a fabulous fabric that you’d love to have as


curtains but can’t stretch to right now. It only needs a couple of metres to make four scatter cushions to throw on the sofa or bed. Alternatively, you can liven up your living room by adding scatter cushions in a vibrant plain velvet, or a gorgeous textured fabric, and teaming them up with co-ordinating accessories such as lamps or vases. Generally speaking the smaller the item, the more intense the colour can be without upsetting the balance of a room.


New bed linen can often do the trick in a bedroom, as can a change of bedside lamps (there really are some stunning lamps to be had at the moment !!!), or even just lampshades. A tired carpet or a bare wood floor will almost certainly be enhanced by a rug, or possibly two. Here again, the world’s your lobster. Choose from a myriad of tightly woven textures and patterns, or deep, sumptuous shaggy rugs you could easily loose a small child in.


Or why not refresh your bathroom and give it a whole new feel with something as simple as a change of colour in the towels.


So there you are. Hopefully that’s whetted your appetite, and kick-started your creative juices for the new decade. Happy New Year !!!
