Thankfully, in terms of colour co-ordination, the overwhelming presence of sombre greys is receding and there’s been a return to mood-boosting, bolder colours to re-energise interior spaces. Pantone’s colour of the year, Viva Magenta, is a wonderful example of a colour vibrating with passion and verve, expressing a new sign of strength. It’s a hybrid shade with a balance of cool and warm tones and it’s symbolic of our crossover from the physical to the digital world.
In joining the physical with the metaverse, the use of colour becomes more important. Colours are much more dynamic, multifaceted, and moving. This leads to the use of more effervescent colours, as the spaces are blended and merged with the surreal dimension.
However, an important aspect to consider when choosing colours for a room is the quality of the light and, given the drive to rely more on natural light in the home, window and skylight treatments are essentially part of the formula for creating stylish interiors. For more than 70 years, Luxaflex® has produced made-to-measure products that bring rooms to life, in a sustainable and environmentally-friendly way. Additionally, the new Duette® Colour on Demand range means you can also get your blinds in Pantone’s new sizzling Viva Magenta tone, as well as in more than 800 other colours.
