At Mylands we’re proud of our British heritage. Our story began in London in 1884; four generations on, it’s still our home today and the source of all our colour inspiration.
In this series, we celebrate our pick of the best of British summertime and the myriad of colours associated with long lazy summer days, seaside resorts and legendary sporting and social events – all with a quintessentially British twist. Use one or more colours to inspire your decorating this season and beyond.
As one of the oldest and most prestigious tournaments in the world, Wimbledon requires little introduction. Lush green lawns, a strict white dress code, juicy red strawberries and cream; these colours herald the start of the great British summer. Simply add sun!
Henley Royal Regatta
Established in 1839, Henley Regatta has stood the test of time – just like the classic colour combination blue and white. Inspired by Henley’s river setting, rowing boats and festival spirit, this colour palette fuses blues, yellows and whites with royal results.
Coastal chic meets nautical nostalgia in this charming palette inspired by the great British seaside. From rugged coast to bustling shores, colours are an eclectic mix of fresh watery and earthy tones enhanced by bright shades evocative of colourful bunting, Neapolitan ices and terraced huts. Life’s a beach!
Lazy Summer Days
Long, lazy summer days evoke laid-back, easy living with a dreamy palette of soft, soothing shades. Perfect pastels, muted tones, off-white and neutral hues are combined to create exquisite interiors with effortless style. And relax!
Joyful rainbow-themed shades contrast and combine for a festival feel. Anything goes in this bright, bold riot of colour; enhance with tropical prints and accessories for a striking summer scheme that’s perfectly hot right now.
