A “restful and reassuring” earthy beige hue that apparently urges us to re-calibrate and re-charge.
Although I am a big fan of taupe and beige, I feel Dulux could have made a bolder choice to inject some colour into our lives during this pandemic. It is known that the feeling of space can affect our mood and although it is a very calming colour; I do not know about you, but I do not need beige in my life!! So, here are a couple of tips, that should you wish to follow this trend, are ways to enhance Brave Ground with accents that will elevate your mood.
So, how would you make it work for you?
Brave Ground is a bolstering and balancing colour which will create a firm foundation with any interior scheme.
Keep your scheme neutral and pair with natural tones which should always be enhanced against crisp white shades for a stylish, relaxing and inviting look. In this scheme texture is king, use sea grass natural elements against contrasted luxurious velvets and copper accessories. (Use complimentary paint colours from Dulux, such as, Paper Chain, Pressed Putty and Woven Nest).
Adding greens, sage and even emerald or lime green, keeping Brave Ground as the neutral back drop is perfect for a heart-warming look. The more jewel emerald tones will add a deep luxurious feel, whilst a contrast sage will feel more natural. Do not forget some fabulous plants to complete the look. (Try the following from the Dulux range – Putting Green, Enchanted Eden or Emerald Glade).
Do you have the courage to be more individual? If so, Brave Ground looks great fashioned with expressive colours like bold fuschia, red or coral. Style with modern furniture for a contemporary, minimalistic look. (Gorgeous suggestions from Dulux include Berry Pop, Lost Coral and Salsa Red).
In the mood
Want to feel calm and collected when you walk into a room? Then think shades of blue alongside Brave Ground. Powder blues, light navy and teals will add the right mood. These tones work well styled up with natural wood, reclaimed furniture and your favourite white ceramics. (We suggest Blue Babe, Cobalt Embrace and Teal Tension from the Dulux range).
The choice is endless, you can certainly use Brave Ground in a more fun and upbeat interior scheme!
