Jotun 2020 Colour Collection

03/10/2019

Earlier this week our favourite paint brand, Jotun Middle East, launched their 12 new colours for 2020, and along with a few other folks, I was lucky enough to get first glimpse. My love affair with this brand goes back quite some time, so I was suitably excited when the launch invite landed on my desk. Seeing the new palette in person was a real treat and, as always, Jotun didn’t disappoint. Some of the highlights of the launch event included a commendable performance by Jotun’s very own staff band and the reveal of Jotun ZERO, an eco-friendly, non toxic product with the ability to absorb toxins in your home. Amazing right?!

If you are in the mind space for a decorating overhaul, or simply fancy experimenting with new, on trend shades to freshen up a tired looking space, one of the new colours is likely to appeal.

Local Green 

“Expands the horizons of the home to encompass the world beyond it, bringing the nature and greenery that surrounds us indoors. It’s a shade associated with sustainability and conservation, comforting us when we’re indoors, while connecting us with our local environment outside.”

Curious Mind

“A chalky yellow tone with the versatility to act as a neutral or an accent as the space demands. Mature and masculine, it is perfect for individuals who prize learning and aren’t afraid to explore and experiment.”

Grounded Red

“Grounded Red reconnects us to the earth, helping us draw strength and stability from the ground beneath us. It is a raw and honest colour – transforming the room into a warming, protective cocoon.”

Free Spirit

“Free Spirit is a colour for wanderers and explorers. Its soft, organic tone carries echoes of the leaves of the jungle and the waters of the lagoon – a reassurance of stability and peace with a promise of exciting travels to come.”

Daydream

“A muted plum-like shade that’s easy to get lost in. Opulent and unusual, it’s an ideal colour for rooms and spaces devoted to cocooning and conversation. 
Sit back, forget everyday concerns for a few minutes, and let your thoughts flow where they will.”

Statement Blue

“Statement Blue can be used to create bold and unique interior spaces, bringing confidence and clarity to the home. Evoking the serenity of an open sky and the profundity of a boundless ocean.”

Humble Yellow

“A colour for the listeners. A smooth, sophisticated colour that gives space for other accents without disappearing into the background. It’s a visual proof that being humble can be a sign of strength.”

Adventure

“Evoking the plains of Africa and inspired by the continent’s rich textile culture, the warm, earthy tones of Adventure remind us that the whole world is out there, and that there are always new colours to explore.”

Lively Red

“Lively Red represents a commitment to be playful and to let a little lightness in. 
Warm and energising, it is a colour that offers a sense of safety and stimulation in equal measure – a shade that invites us to relax and smile a little wider every day.”

Exhale

“A light and subtle colour that evokes the stillness and silence of water. Although it may seem impossible to make more time in the day, you can always stop for a second and inhabit the moment. Exhale is a reminder to make time your own – sometimes a deep breath is enough to refresh and recalibrate.”

Wisdom

“A dark and cosmopolitan shade. It is ideal for those areas of our homes devoted to cultivating the intellect, such as studies, libraries, and workspaces. A quietly powerful statement colour, Wisdom encourages clear thinking in an atmosphere of suavity and masculine elegance.”

Serene Blue


“Evoking the freedom and possibility of the sky and the sea, Serene Blue speaks softly but makes a strong interior statement. Confident but complementary, it sets the mood of the room while giving space to other accents and objects.”

Drop us a comment , we’d love to know which colour you’re most drawn to?

  • It's been a pretty slow weekend here. Hope yours has been chilled too?
  • On the blog this week, we are sharing some of our favourite digital art resources. During these times of restricted movement, it's more convenient than ever to be able to purchase artwork that can be downloaded, sent to print and frame via online framing specialists like @draftframes and delivered to your door. I'm all about the convenience factor here! Link in bio for some of our go-to's

  • My Fronteriors co-founder, @liveloudgirl and I are going to be hosting a live Q&A session over on the @fronteriors account this Sunday.

  • I've been thinking about all the kids rooms we've designed and installed over the past few years, many of which had desks included. Unless they're kids in senior school, I usually view desks as a 'nice to have' addition if space allows. But I'm guessing those desks are getting a lot of mileage these days with Dubai schools continuing online learning until at least the end of the academic year. #crazytimes #stayhome #staysafe
  • A quiet afternoon was much needed to round off the weekend. Hope you all had a good one? Just peeking out on the left there is my new, improved @fronteriors Billy bookcase. More on that tomorrow.

  • She's been cursed with my coarse, wiry locks (that take 400 hrs to dry), if only I'd been blessed with that gorgeous colour. Suddenly wondering why I've never tried it. #hmm #maybe
  • I'm out of the house and in someone else's home and its feeling like a big adventure after so many weeks amidst the same walls. We are finally  starting to install the spaces we've designed for a family villa that we've been working on remotely for several weeks. Installation days are not what they used to be for us. This one is happening over a number of days. Fewer handymen and painters on site, masks, a safe distance and a whole lot of handwashing. Its feels strange but its definitely a step in the right direction.
  • The kitchen. It's always been the heart of the home, but over the past two months, it's been more of a command central in the home. All the cooking, baking, copious tea and coffee-making, school planning, live lesson participating, news watching (we have a TV room to the left), snack foraging.... you name it, it's been happening right here.

  • If you'd told me a few months ago that I'd spend 8 straight weeks within the confines of my home, leaving only a handful of times for essentials, I'd have laughed out loud. And that's coming from a real homebody. Life sure is unpredictable.
