Dulux Spring '11: Forest Falls

This spring season sees a strong botanical trend in the UK interiors market, with many of the core high street brands choosing to include floral illustrations and colours in their key collections. No surprise, then, that Dulux considers the Forest Falls shade of green to be the key colour from their latest collection of paints. With six shades to choose from, there's certainly room for working the punchy green hues into botanical schemes. I'd opt to use this colour to make a quirky statement - just like they've done with the silhouetted standard lamp. For me, it's those little, quirky features that make a house a home. P.S. Isn't that faux plate shelf kinda fun? It's great to see a paint brand illustrating how the gloopy stuff can go beyond your standard feature wall. Bravo!

  8. I would never have put those tones of greens together but somehow they really work. Green is the feature colour for my living room to go with dark chocolate brown leather couches and timer floorboards ... if only I can find the right shade of green rug I can start accessorising!

  21. Wow...talk about color statements! I never really would have thought to paint a piece of furniture the exact same color as the wall it sits in front of. I don't think it is something I would choose, but I see the intrigue in it and think it works!

    ReplyDelete
  22. ha! That faux shelf plate is such a great idea! Aesthetically and functionally- I'm so clumsy if I hung real plates above my couch I'm sure one of them would find its way ...crashing down on top of my head hahah Happy Weekend, Will :)

    xoox Will!
