We’ve chosen a very dramatic colour for this week’s Home Tones post… petrol blue. It really grabs your attention. It’s often used quite sparingly in room schemes so as not to overpower it – perhaps a feature wall, furniture upholstery etc. People are being quite brave about embracing darkness now however – note the trend for dark greys in interior design – so we think this shade could be used quite liberally in a space – perhaps in conjunction with the aforementioned greys, fuchsia and violet. We often see flocks of starlings on nearby farmland and their feathers are very beautiful when you look at them close up – an iridescent combination of purple, green and this petrol blue. Take your colour combination cue from nature!
