Golden Glow – The English Home

Posted April 1, 2016 In: /

The popular sunny yet mellow tone of golden yellow bursts onto the scene again as it brightens interiors with its cheerful glow.

Dulux has named Cherished Gold as its colour of the year for 2016 and pretty golden hues are pervading many new collections in papers, fabrics, tiles and rugs. We believe that this new hue of yellow is more than just a fashion and has an appeal that will last for years to come.

Golden yellows are perfectly partnered by shades of grey or mink that provide a sophisticated foil to their vibrancy. These smart and gentle colour combinations allow for a little playfulness with patterns, whether pretty florals or bold geometrics.

Choosing the right shade of yellow is important to ensure a chic finish. Pale pastels and acid brights are off the menu; instead seek out warm golden tones that offer richness and opulence. Thanks to the colour’s popularity, there is plenty of choice for the decorator to create a gorgeous scheme with longevity.

A light, bright, open-plan kitchen-diner with white cabinetry benefits from a dose of colour and some golden rays of sunshine. Combining blinds with curtains offers versatility and an extra level of decoration that helps designate the living space of the room with a homely feel.
