For a number of years now grey has been the neutral colour of choice be it a paint colour, upholstery fabric, curtain fabric or in the finishes of your home. Colour trends for curtain fabric and upholstery fabric are constantly evolving. They are a reflection of the current events in the world, be it political, economical, social or environmental. Therefore COVID-19 has had a huge impact to these trends as we spend more time at home.

There has been a shift to warmer greys with beiges increasing again in popularity. Greys haven’t disappeared as they are the most neutral of neutrals being a combination of black and white. We are seeing warmer earthy tones as they create a sense of calm and wellbeing. Often these neutrals are being combined with bold splashes of colour or more pastel shades to enliven your interiors.
