“Come, let’s have a bath.” the bath is a white stone, deep, egg shaped affair, very designer.”~ from that book!
Is it over for Grey? That was the heading of an article I recently read. But what about those of us who haven’t yet reached grey, what about those of us who are still on beige? Not to mention those people who haven’t even reached beige yet
Sorry to disappoint, but I am not debating the latest erotic book. I am referring here to an article on Houzz,the web site and online community that discusses interior design, designer trends, decorating, and general home improvement.
I have (unknowingly) given a slight nod towards recent trends; the colour of my kitchen walls are similar to that of a large African elephant, the offical name is ‘Elephants Breath’ which unsurprisingly is a greyish beige/beigey grey.
Talking of beige, it can be a useful colour for a sofa, and very practical when it has a small brown fleck running through it, and especially when a grandson with a bar of contraband chocolate in his back pocket, sits on it for half an hour. The melted chocolate cleaned up a treat (see what I did there?) but had the sofa been of the plain grey variety, the outcome of the melted chocolate incident would have been a slightly different story.
The previous sofas were electronically adjustable, brown leather, wipe clean, and what a bonus that was, and also very comfortable.
Their predecessors were floral and reminiscent of a bygone era, so much so that visitors half expected to hear the air raid warning sirens when they entered my home. To give you a better idea perhaps I should confess that all that was missing was the big brown wireless.
So, if you are in the market for new sofas/settee/couch or even a chair, I should bypass grey, that way you’ll be bang on trend, but first check out Houzz, after all, you’ll need to know what’s coming next! And if there’s nothing there that tickles your fancy you could always try floral. I like floral!
