Bring It Back
There is strong movement to bring back a more simple time. Retro patterns abound with bold, graphic patterns and nostalgia are the key to designing many colour schemes. Decades are identified by a single colour, pair or trio, in the mood that shaped that decade. see the colors
Colours that shaped the decade.

Inviting Entrances
Nothing says “Welcome” more than a bright front door. It is the “house jewelry” that makes a house a home, that stands out from the ordinary. Many colours found on front doors have a historic or cultural meaning steeped in tradition, tied to a style or the colour of the body of the home. see the colors

Nature Transformed
Nature is transformed into organic shapes with an ethereal quality. Leaves morph into exotic, otherworld shapes. Trees and shells become a modern pattern infused with playful light. The idea of nature exists, but in digital form that expands the definition of what is natural beauty. see the colors

Reality Exposure
Across the globe, visual arts, social media and tribal mentality provide a never ending source of inspiration. Colourful evening gowns, costumes and especially the garb worn by rockers, spurn young and old to imitate their colours and styles. Clean and bright colours led by trademark Rocker Black. see the colors

Shadow Play
In the morning, light colours appear as shadows with a softness that belies it’s true hue. Softened edges give the observer the feeling that there are no borders, one colour fades into another. Gentle colours ease our souls, relax our minds, and offer us peace of mind. see the colors
