Join the colour Movement
In our new series of blogs, we are taking a closer look at our latest colour trends to show how both trade professionals and DIY enthusiasts can create new colour schemes with confidence. Here we explain how you can take your interior decoration in a new direction with the urban street art inspired ‘Movement’.
Movement – a colourful journey
Colour is both emotive and evocative; it can transport you but it can help you rediscover the magic of your own surroundings. This is the thinking behind Movement, which celebrates the diversity and energy of multicultural urban spaces, taking inspiration from the adventures of global travel and bright colourful street art. Fun and adventurous, this exciting and vibrant palette pairs neutral greys with pops of vibrant purple, teal and mustard.
By using more than one of the complementary shades, you can make a real statement by creating a talking-point in reception rooms and other spaces used for entertaining. The use of the more muted greys tones also makes this trend perfect for rooms where a more relaxed and reflective design is desired, with the scope to add further interest and personality through the use of textured paint finishes.
Making the first move
As the name suggests, Movement is a journey and like all our trends, it can be easily adapted to suit your own personal taste. The diverse spectrum of colour has wide appeal and can be used individually or as a collective to create a bespoke style, with the freedom to go bold or create a more understated look to suit.
With a colour palette inspired by colourful streetscapes and the adventure of travel, Movement lends itself perfectly to the use of directional geometric shapes, such as chevrons and stripes. Preparation and planning are key to achieving this look, which is why we have created this step-by-step video to help you on your way.
