Ultra-Violet 18-3838 was elected colour of the year for 2018 by Pantone; not a surprising choice since last year the institute launched a new shade of purple called Love Symbol #2 in tribute to the artist Prince. But what about Dulux Valentine, what colour did they choose for 2018? After the blue grey of 2017, this year the paint brand has chosen Heart Wood as its go-to for interior design. Heart Wood is a soft and soothing pinkish brown and through combining it with certain complimentary colours it can create a convivial, relaxing, dynamic or cosy atmosphere.
Which colours should you pair Heart Wood with?
Heart Wood is used in small doses in interiors; on a wall, upholstery fabric, bed linen, or furniture, and finds its place in every room of the house. Timeless, this contemporary nuance is best when used to highlight other shades.
By combining Heart Wood with shades of powder pink, nude pink, gooseberry pink or with pink organza, you can create a soothing ambiance.
With other browns
Don’t hesitate to pair Heart Wood with an icy brown, taupe or a smoky brown. This combination will bring softness to your interior décor.
With blues and greys
Paired with blue or grey tones, Heart Wood creates an elegant décor.
With yellows and greens
By combining Heart Wood with vibrant greens or yellow, you will infuse your home with a breath of freshness and dynamism.
With earth and wood tones
The combination of Heart Wood with earth tones and natural woods will reinforce the warmth of the room, creating a cocooning atmosphere.
