It’s the month of love this February! While Valentine’s Day might feel a little different this year we think looking for, and celebrating, silver livings is good for the heart and soul.

Recently, the Pantone Color Institute unveiled the colours they think will style the runways and decorate the hallways in the year to come. This year, Pantone took the unusual step of unveiling two colours: Ultimate Grey and Illuminating (Illuminating being a bright sunny yellow)

According to Pantone pairing these two contrasting colours was a carefully considered choice – Illuminating is hopeful, enthusiastic and Ultimate Grey is strong and dependable.

We love the idea of using to very different colours to create something new, unusual and beautiful. Pantone’s 2021 Colours are a wonderful way to give a space in your home an updated trendy twist.

Here are just some of our favourite ways to fall in love with a little colour this February:

INTRODUCE NEW COLOURS TO YOUR BEDROOM WITH A FRESH DUVET SET
Is there anything quite as nice as falling asleep in soft, new linen? Give your room an instant (and relatively inexpensive) makeover with a happily colourful duvet set to lighten and brighten your mood for days to come.

 

 

TAKE SOME COLOUR OUTSIDE
We still have a whole month of summer to enjoy. Take your favourite colours outside for an all-year-long comfy balcony or patio. Create a neutral foundation with your furniture of choice and simply add a splash of personality with bright cushions and other accents like tablecloths.

 

 

SPOIL YOURSELF WITH SOFT FURNISHINGS
Of course, some colour trends do come and go. A clever way to incorporate a dash of colour without breaking the bank is with accessories you can easily swop out. Think scatter cushions, lampshades, throw blankets and even area rugs.
