Nature Inspired

1970’s apartment building about to have an internal makeover

I’m currently creating a colour palette for a block of apartments. The block was built in the ’70’s and I must say, some of the designs of that era leave alot to be desired.

Bricks that are not being changed

The bricks are a combination of blonde and chocolate and I have been asked to come up with a colour scheme for tiles, carpet and paint for the public spaces inside the building.

Tiles, carpet, walls all need refreshing

I noticed a tree at the entry to the building that was losing it’s bark.

A myriad of colours on the bark

The colours of the bark were glorious and so I decided that I could come up with a scheme based on the colours in the bark. Afterall, if nature can put them together then they will certainly look good beside each other.

So, I was very intrigued today when I received an email from Dulux announcing a new colour palette that has been inspired by nature.
