Light Drizzle Blue

Wedgwood Blue has always been a favourite, but 2020 will see a more watered down, paler version appearing. Light Drizzle Blue is cool, calm and collected and would be right at home on both classic and contemporary properties.

Graphic Charcoal

Battleship Grey has always been popular, but in 2020 we’ll see things getting darker, bolder and more dramatic with Graphic Charcoal. Not for the faint-hearted, this colour would look great on any type of property as it’s both modern and traditional at the same; a very versatile shade.

Creamy Mushroom

With white, cream and ivory all popular choices when it comes to front door colours, Creamy Mushroom is a new alternative for 2020. With a warmer more organic feel to it, we think this colour is going to be big, so make sure you get in there first!

Red Pepper

If you want to add a pop of colour to your home, Letterbox Red has always been the go-to statement colour, but 2020 will see a warmer, dirtier, more mediterranean red trending; Red Pepper. Think grilled red peppers and juicy ripe tomatoes.
