Why be a wallflower?
Abigail describes this colour as ‘[Mercer Green] teams beautifully with almost every other hue. Its deep, intoxicating color creates a stunning accent. Strong and reassuring, it adds instant glamour to whatever it touches. Beautiful in living rooms, bedrooms and dining rooms.’

As the name of this blog may suggest, I am a HUGE fan of metallic. Last year saw copper become absolutely massive and although I don’t think it’s completely had its day, in 2018 I’m expecting us to see much more gold and mixed metallics, maybe even with a little silver thrown in dare I say?
If you’re a little nervous about painting a whole wall gold like me, why not dip your toe into the trend with some metallic home accessories. These golden ants on the console table in our hall are a real talking point, available from Audenza.
I have copper accents in my kitchen which I selected before copper became so mainstream that even all the high street stores have offerings in it. A kitchen is a purchase that you cannot change on a whim with every fleeting trend and I’m still so happy with the choices we made as my Marmite kitchen gives me all the thrills in all the right places.

So for now all it needs me to do is wish you all a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
Lots of love as always G x
