Colour trends for spring/summer 2011

As part of the ‘Home and Happiness’ series, I thought I would continue to think about the things that make for a “Happy Home”, rejuvenate a space and lift your spirits. Typically at this time of year we look to add an injection of colour into our rooms and according to Mix Trends the interior colour of choice in Spring/Summer 2011 is Pale Sky Blue.

Pale Blue NCS S1020-R80B       
This particular blue would look stunning with browns, reds and most importantly PINKS! It is also hugely versatile, as it can be used in many different rooms, from bedrooms to sitting rooms to living rooms to kitchens!

This year this colour has leapt from smaller accessories and fabrics, for instance Sophie Allport designs who sell great tea towels and oven gloves…

…to larger items like sofas and chairs, for instance Hans Wegner Wishbone Chair in Light Blue, a sure sign that industry insiders believe this is a colour, like grey, with great potential for longevity.

So why not add an injection of colour to your kitchen whether it be a tea towel or a dining chair! Or to any other room for that matter…
