Abode's February Colour Showcase

Good evening and welcome to Abode this week. For us compared to January, February has flown by! We’ve been busy on Pinterest collecting examples of some of our favourite springtime colours and trends we’ve noticed this month. Featuring lighthearted yellow tones, atmospheric sage and some statement fireplace inspiration in between, our February Colour Showcase offers just what you need to get through these cold, snowy days…

HAPPY YELLOWS

Our favourite thing about the colour yellow, in its many shades, is its instant impact on our mood. The positive associations of sunshine and summer days are the perfect addition of optimism to any room. We love yellow so much that after last week’s article we couldn’t resist a second mini-feature! In the image above you can see the variety of tones of this vibrant colour. Even in a delicate pastel form, it's able to transform a room. We love how the photographer has used different types of sunflower to emphasise the colour of the paint after all flowers are the perfect home accessory during springtime, and what better way to add a touch of sunshine to your home than with a sunflower?

FABULOUS FIREPLACES

Continuing on the subject of springtime, this statement fireplace is such a treat! We absolutely love these bright green tiles. They almost make us think of the Emerald City in The Wizard of Oz! If your home is lucky enough to have a working or ornamental fireplace, why not consider decorating it? This image makes the most of nature not only in the colour choices but also in the decoration. The natural wicker baskets and wooden candle holders look great against the polished green and neutral grey wall. And again we think the gorgeous British flower displays are a lovely touch too. Emerald green is one of our favourite shades and seen here in a brighter way using polished tiles is an excellent use of the rich colour.

ATMOSPHERIC SAGE

Last but not least in our colour showcase this month, we have sage. We think that this colour although technically a greenish-grey can be considered a neutral shade, especially when paired with white. Having this soft yet affecting colour throughout the room creates a modern and rustic look. At First 4 Blinds, we love the use of oat coloured blinds. We believe sage would look just a beautiful as interior shutters, perhaps even with white painted walls behind?
