After a sweltering summer, the clocks have gone back, the evenings are darker and the season of log fires and warm blankets is here at last. At Opticolour, we’re celebrating this cosier mood with the launch of four new colours that are perfect for the winter months and beyond.
Tapping into the current trend for dark interiors, we’re launching two dark options and two contrasting options that coordinate beautifully with the latest interior decoration styles.
This moody blue (main photo) has taken over the interiors world and can be seen on walls, sofas, painted furniture and textiles in all the most fashionable homes. And no wonder – it’s a sophisticated but versatile shade that combines with every colour from dark grey and green, to pinks and yellows, to white and cream, and with every style of interior decoration whether rustic, industrial, mid-century or traditional. A modern classic shade, its cosy vibes look set to stick around for many years yet.
Cinnamon Burst is bronze glass with a metallic sparkle finish. It would look wonderful next to dark coloured cabinets and furniture and would work particularly well in a space that featured other bronze or gold detailing such as hardware and lighting. As a warm metallic, Cinnamon Burst would also add a cheerful glow to whites, creams, neutral colours and wooden finishes.
Another interior decoration trend that is fast becoming a classic choice is grey walls and furniture. Chalked Mauve is a mid-grey with purplish undertones that creates a warm and welcoming atmosphere. It would be perfect combined with white and wood in a Scandi-inspired space, but its neutral tones would sit well with many other interior styles. We love it mixed with plum, blush pink, gold, emerald green, and classic black and white.
Turtle Green is a very dark green with a rich velvety appearance. Dramatic but warm, it mixes well with a variety of colour palettes – adding depth to neutrals and providing a contrasting backdrop for brighter shades. With its air of opulence and luxury, Turtle Green also nods to icons of traditional British life, such as classic racing cars and Barbour jackets. Metallics such as gold and copper really come to life against this elegant green.
