Spring into colour

This year’s spring colour palette is a fantastic mix of neutrals and brights; the Pantone Fashion Colour Report Spring 2013 includes a range of 10 colours ranging from nude Linen to vibrant Poppy Red and moody Monaco Blue. In this article we explore how to integrate them (a little or a lot) into your home décor this season.

Feeling blue

This season’s serene Dusky Blue and moody Monaco Blue create a calm, cool, refreshing décor palette. Anchored by neutral Linen, this combination takes inspiration from sky- and seascapes, tempting us slowly out of the doldrums of winter and setting us on course for summer.
A popular colour in all seasons and across all trends, blue is found in many homes. If you are committed to this colour, consider making a confident statement and have your shutters custom finished in the blue of your choice.

AMERICAN Decowood shutters are both cost effective and eco-friendly and can be custom finished in style, shape and colour. With as many as 23 painted finishes to choose from, there will definitely be a colour to suit your interior design style.

If you prefer to keep your permanent features a neutral colour, then pay respect to the changing of the seasons by adding accessories in Monaco or Dusk Blue; cushions, artwork, accessories such as vases and candles or a painted feature wall will invite the spring into your home in a subtle, versatile way.

Decowood shutters are available in a palette of six standard shades of white. Durable and easy to keep clean, they are ideal for any room in the home.

Not only customisable to your colour of choice, AMERICAN shutters are able to manufacture shutters in unusual shapes such as triangles, arches and domes. With green living a way of life for now and the future, why not make the boldest statement possible and colour your life and shutters green.
