The first leg of the Olympic Torch relay is underway today! Anyone wanting to get a glimpse of the mighty gold Torch as it travels up and down the UK should find it passes within a 10 mile radius of their house!
With the whole of the country gearing up for London 2012, this month’s interior design trend is for all things fire-inspired!! Bold reds, burnt oranges and bright yellows are a catwalk fashion for summer 2012, and this ‘flaming fantastic’ colour palette has made the transition into the home!
These vibrant colours create an energized space and you can highlight these tones with gold accents, using accessories and soft furnishings; such as wall-hung gold mirrors and cushions with golden threaded patterns.
Alternatively, using the main colour palette of soft, natural tones, you can add character and exuberance to the home by accentuating the smooth, neutral colours with dazzling gold or striking red touches. This type of colour-mixing is reminiscent of the “Hollywood Glamour” days in the 1930s and 40s; creating an elegant combination of rich earthy tones with vivid reds and golds!
‘Go for Gold’ with these Ayers & Graces mirrorsâ€¦.!
