16 Shades of Grey
Curated by H is for Home

Who said the colour grey is boring? It’s a fantastically versatile colour in interiors and judging by the recent first series of the Great Interior Design Challenge, it’s bang on trend!

Different shades look fabulous together in a room setting – from concrete to dove, gunmetal to charcoal. Grey works a treat as a foundation colour, setting off furniture and accessories in bold colours such as mustard yellow, lime green, hot pink and teal blue.

'Mellow Yellow' H is for Home Etsy List

Yellow is such a sign of springtime – daffodils, celandine, primroses. A wonderful, uplifting splash of colour after a long, dark winter. A promise of the warmth and light of a summer just around the corner.

Purple Haze
curated by H is for Home

Regular readers would be forgiven for thinking that my favourite colour is orange. We use it so much in our home decor, we sell a lot of orange vintage in our shop and I even wear orange on a regular basis.

Well, in actual fact, my favourite colour is purple – it has been for as long as I can remember! Unfortunately my favourite shade of purple, a deep violet, doesn’t suit my complexion at all so I don’t wear it. We have a few purple items dotted around our shop and we’ve used it as a colour in our home in the past. I don’t exactly know when and why it went; perhaps it’s time for a purple resurgence!
