I enjoyed reading this. A really interesting and informative article. I also noticed the way wood seems to ground many of the schemes.

I recently took the plunge and put a mural up in my bedroom. I like the way it subtly brings in greens and adds colour in a more interesting way.

Like isburr01, I can't see these colours working in our climate either, the last thing we need is warmth, we need to use fresh, clean, clear colours to keep our homes looking welcoming and restful. While it is great to see colours being used again, this is where I feel trends in colour is just ridiculous, they just do not take into account all different lights and climates. Greens, blues, aquas, soft yellows and pinks do look great just not these shades, I just feel suffocated and flat looking at these rooms.

Anything but powder pink for me – smacks too much of a hairdressing salon. Surely the downside to 'colour trends' is that they date by definition, whereas classic combinations don't.
