LIGHT AND DARK - COLOUR TREND

 

Continuing the theme of “looking both ways” i.e back to the past and forward into the future, The Dark and Light Palette blends tradition with modern innovation.  One of the key trends has been the importance of Darkness.  

 

Just as we need a dark sky in order to see the stars more clearly,  so it is with this palette.  The Dutch Masters of the 17th century epitomised this with their clever use of light playing against dark hues.

 

This can be translated into an interior scheme where there can be the juxtaposition of a dark and moody paint finish with rich and textural upholstery such as velvets to provide lustre, sheen and contrast.

Many of the colours in this palette combine coherently to reflect the tones of both dusk and dawn.
