Cohabitate - Volume 11, Haymes Paint

The ultimate palette for creating an easy breezy space, where people can come together, communicate and spend time free from technology and the chaos of everyday living. The colours are light, airy and breezy in peach and pink skin tones, with a real focus on pastels being a starting point for introducing more colour into the home using minty greens, fresh lemon and duck egg blue.

Colour is one of the easiest ways to create a separation in a space without physically closing it off. The Cohabitate palette from The Colour Library Volume 11 by Haymes Paint is all about using colour to create spaces that foster conversation and togetherness, while still allowing a space to have multiple breakout areas that can serve a multipurpose.

Ultra Violet - Pantone's 2018 colour of the year... what do you think?

 
 
pantone-colour-of-the-year-ultra-violet
 

We all love finding out what Pantone's colour of the year will be - and this year it had everyone talking more than ever!

18-3838 ULTRA VIOLET is the colour and Pantone has said  "Inventive and imaginative, Ultra Violet lights the way to what is yet to come." 

 
 

Complex and contemplative, Ultra Violet suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now. The vast and limitless night sky is symbolic of what is possible and continues to inspire the desire to pursue a world beyond our own.

Enigmatic purples have also long been symbolic of counterculture, unconventionality, and artistic brilliance. Musical icons Prince, David Bowie, and Jimi Hendrix brought shades of Ultra Violet to the forefront of western pop culture as personal expressions of individuality. Nuanced and full of emotion, the depth of PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet symbolizes experimentation and non-conformity, spurring individuals to imagine their unique mark on the world, and push boundaries through creative outlets.

Historically, there has been a mystical or spiritual quality attached to Ultra Violet. The colour is often associated with mindfulness practices, which offer a higher ground to those seeking refuge from today’s over-stimulated world. The use of purple-toned lighting in meditation spaces and other gathering places energises the communities that gather there and inspire connection.

Exterior Paint Trends 2018...

 
 

The end of 2017 is soooo close, 10 sleeps close to be precise... so it's time to start looking to the new year and what trends will be flooding our screens and pages. 

For our first trend report of 2018 let's talk about exteriors! The exterior of your home is just as important as the interior, however it sometimes gets forgotten about, neglected or just left until last, and it's time that changed.

The exterior of your home is the first thing people see when they visit you, it's the first thing you see when you arrive home and it gives everyone an idea of what they can find inside... So whether it's cute and quaint, modern and bold or minimalist and refined, it's time to bring your exterior into 2018 and the easiest way to do that, is with paint!
