Mini Moderns founders Keith Stephenson and Mark Hampshire were amazed when they came across Newlife Paints via Twitter. “We thought to ourselves: Paint made from paint that has been thrown away – surely that’s too good to be true? But once we had visited Newlife Paint’s factory and met Keith Harrison, the brains behind the operation, we were convinced that this was an amazing opportunity.” Read More

Color crush grey and yellow

More color inspiration with grey and yellow; everywhere I turn this color combination is wildly popular.  This is a sweet, feminine color choice for your decor that by no means too excessively sweet. The colors are peaceful and serene and allow you to mix and match so many other shades of color into your design. Not to mention the fact that yellow and grey are wonderfully gender neutral. Pale grey and soft lemon yellow, is a match made in heaven.

One of last year’s trends gray & yellow is still one of my favorite combinations. And it’s still equally relevant.

Trend watch: Copper, Brass & Gold

Copper, brass & gold in every form, from retro throwbacks to new innovative shapes, the copper gold and brass is in abundance. This fall there are the golden hues of metal that applies us. Copper, brass & gold adds a unique quality to a space making it instantly seem more glamorous and collected, so it’s no wonder why it’s making a comeback. Somehow anything plated in gold or shinning in brass is elevated into an object of desire.

Grey and concrete

Grey is a neutral, balanced color. It is a cool, conservative color that seldom evokes strong emotion although it can be seen as a cloudy or moody color. Grey is a perfect neutral, which is why designers often use it as a background color. Grey can be dramatic, elegant and timeless but also calm and relaxed color.

 

color

 

Grey colors range from almost black to almost white and sometimes carry a hint of blue or brown. Grey and silver are sometimes used interchangeable although silver has a shinier, more metallic sheen. Grey is also associated with industry and man-made materials like concrete and metal. In the past, people thought gray was a drab, boring color, but now it is very trendy and modern. Read More

Brown and Wood

Brown is a natural, down-to-earth neutral color. It is found in earth, wood, and stone. Brown says stability, reliability, and approachability. It is the color of our earth and is associated with all things natural or organic. Using brown in our spaces can help to create a very solid, stable environment.

Brown is a warm and safe color, it encapsulates or desire to have natural things around us. Brown is often the color we call wood or timber; it is grainy and fundamentally earthy. Because it is natural it goes with almost any color. Read More

Black and white

In the world of interior, black and white definitely have their place. The use of black and white can add a touch of class to a room, as well as a stunning and dramatic decor.

The use of black and white in decorating gives a fresh, clean, and unquestionably sophisticated and elegant look to any room. White signifies purity, innocence, minimalism, as well as a very clean feeling. White definitely goes well with any other color. Black is bold, elegant, mysterious, sophisticated, but it can also convey a conservative feeling as well.
