Mylands’ Spring 2020 Colours
Walpole No.42, Morning Blue No.32, Observatory No.34, FTT-018
We’re delighted to announce our colour palette for Spring 2020, with blues in four contrasting tones, from bright and bold through to soft neutrals.
Our Spring 2020 colours include Walpole, Morning Blue, Observatory, and FTT 018 from our Film, Television and Theatre paint collection. Selected by our in-house colour experts, the palette has been carefully curated to reflect the versatility and perennial popularity of blue - from the understated calm of Walpole’s off-white with soft blue-green tones, to the high-impact electric blue of FTT 018.
Morning Blue No.32
Blues give a fresh feel to a space and evoke feelings of calm. Often thought of a cool colour, these blues will bring warmth to a space through the soft tones and depth of pigments. Each colour can be used on its own or combined with any others within the palette for a harmonious and sophisticated interior. They can also be used with contrasting pinks, greens or greys for a layered look.
Dominic Myland, Managing Director, explains:
‘We have selected this palette because we have seen them growing in popularity recently as result of their prevalence in many different areas, be it nature, art, interiors or fashion. It’s all about blue, its enduring appeal and its versatility. People are often drawn to blue as it is hopefully the first thing we see when we look out of the window in the morning and the last thing we see in the evening as those darker, blue black tones fill the sky. Light blue can be very soothing, and more saturated blues can be stimulating or act as a quieter backdrop for other colours within a space.’
