The Great British Summer of Colour

Colour inspiration can be gleaned for quite literally anywhere, however, when it comes to choosing colours that are quintessentially associated with the British summer there are three main sources of inspiration, namely, strawberries & cream, the seaside and, for those who love sport, Wimbledon!

 Wimbledon has a long history, and so do its colours, purple, dark green that date back to 1909, although the reason for the colours changes is not stated in the records. Notwithstanding, it is well recognised within the world of interior design that purple and green sit peacefully next to one another in all the various shades. So, if you’re looking for a touch of Wimbledon, (or maybe want to celebrate the UK’s success ) opt for darker purple and dark green. If you’re looking for a more retro décor lime green and aubergine are the colour choices you should go for. For those looking for a more gentle hue summer lavenders and pale greens are the ideal choice.

What could be more British than eating a bowl full of scrumptious strawberries and cream, picked from your own garden or from a local producer. These fabulous colours evoke the feeling of long, hot lazy summer days, picnics and summer weddings. Red and cream look stunning in most types of home and as red is the colour associated with stimulating the taste buds what better place to use this colour scheme than the dining room or kitchen.
