Key Spring / Summer Colours For Your Home

Spring is always an exciting time of year for me — the garden wakes up and the sun appears from nowhere, like a lost love and brings with it hope and anticipation for the long stretch of summer ahead. My designer head gets swept along and all at once I’m buzzing with inspiration and ideas for the year ahead. Part of my job is to be constantly aware of emerging trends and this year, the up-and-coming trends are bigger, better, more exciting than ever before. Ella Melrose Interiors is delighted to share our spring summer paint palette with you….Capturing the beauty of the natural world, botanical greens, passionate pinks and blushed neutrals introduce an abundance of decorating possibilities for this summer.

Expert styling tips create the perfect interior as colours and styles blend to make a scheme that is uniquely yours. Our stock of Sanderson paint with its new spring summer palette is available in three finishes, carefully curated for elegant family living. Making a big splash this spring is Rose Quartz- a pastel blush , along with the light blue , “the new neutral” and has fast become a staple for walls, furniture and accessories alike. As a warm-toned pastel, it works best when contrasted with hard, cool materials like Carrara marble. Brass or copper accents pull the whole look together beautifully.

Rose tinted rooms… Cleopatra is said to have carpeted the floor of her boudoir with petals to seduce Mark Anthony. Today we can rather more easily fill the rooms with roses and their pretty hues- perhaps with motifs in bold large scale prints and unexpected tones, updating classic chintzes and adding fresh interest. Layer with rose-hued accessories to bring a modern-day romance and optimism to your home. Colour may be a predictable starting place for me as someone who makes absolutely no secret of the love for the subject, but where better to start when the sun is streaming in through the house. Then it’s flooring and the shift of the geometric pattern from wall to underfoot. Finally, it’s furniture and the emergence of simple artisan pieces that have a delicacy that is often interestingly balanced with an industrial edge. It’s an uncomplicated, clean look but you just can’t help looking. And then looking again. Our love for all things geometric has dripped off our walls and accessories onto our floors. Depending on the choice of material the look can be traditional, sharp and contemporary, or rustic. Using geometrics on both the wall and floor will maximise the impact and give a lovely sense of design continuity. It’s a bold look but the geo trend is here to stay, so be brave and don’t worry about it dating quickly!
