Hello 2019!

Hello and Happy New Year to you all. We hope you had a lovely Christmas and an exciting New Year, to welcome 2019 we want to use our inspiration blog to commemorate Pantone’s Colour of the Year - Living Coral; Living Coral. This vibrant, positive colour is just what 2019 is calling for.

At First 4 Blinds, we can’t wait to see how Living Coral will influence interior design and trends this year. We think it will look amazing alongside more neutral colour palettes as well as moody, dark colours like deep chocolate and warm auburn. Even though the year is just beginning, we have already caught wind of a few new trends we can’t wait to share with you including the latest designer interior collections as well as some wellbeing advice to keep yourself grounded and focused - let’s make 2019 the best year yet!

We’ve put together a few Coral images to help set the tone, maybe they will give you some inspiration to incorporate this beautiful colour into your scheme.

Start with your Front Door

We love these coral pink front doors, they are so uplifting and welcoming. We especially like the combination of coral with pastel mint green (also set to be a highly influential colour this year).

Bring Coral indoors

Take a colour associated with life under the sea and bring it front and centre into your home. The beauty of coral is that is compliments many colours and textures including the marble and metal combination or the more industrial concrete aesthetic. We love the textured wallpaper seen in the image above.

We will be back next week with a new article, but in the meantime, if you would like any further advice on decorating your home, please feel free to get in touch: https://www.first4blinds.com/contact-us/ And for more design inspiration and previous articles, find us on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest.
