Apologies for being a little quiet on the blog lately – we are rounding up the school year (one day to go!), finishing off decor projects, preparing for a big birthday weekend in our house and getting ready to retreat to some cooler weather in South Africa next week. Suffice to say it’s been a ‘lil busy (read as chaotic) around here lately.
Let’s get down to some pretty paint business, then. If you haven’t already seen the six beautiful tones in Jotun’s SS2015 collection, then consider this your treat for the day. For anyone planning a little home improvement or DIY work over the summer, there is no doubt something here that you are going to fall in love with here…
Jotun Minty Breeze – 7163 // Currently Jotuns most popular shade, and by far my favourite, the mint tone is subdued and discreet, yet commands attention. Minty Breeze is a classic and works well in any space, even with colourful décor. Oozes zen vibes, don’t you think?
Jotun Objective – 1973 // Part of the grey family, which is becoming increasingly popular in interior design, Objective has a strong sense of calm, adding comfort to any space. Super chic, me thinks. Though competition for the top spot.
Jotun Soft Mint – 7555 // Soft Mint is a tender rendition within the blue-green palette. Classic pairing for this tone is neutrals and whites. I love this shade almost as much as Minty Breeze, but I prefer the slight grey undertone in the latter.
Jotun Soft Skin – 10580 // Derived from earthy tones, Soft Skin’s pinkish tone gives it a very feminine touch. The shade works well with greys and black. Great for girly spaces.
Jotun Velvet – 10246 // This lighter, soft amber tone is a sophisticated take on browns, with a tinge of yellow. To create a timeless look, pair this shade with grey, white or black décor. It also works brilliantly well with golden hues.
Jotun Warm Blush – 2859 // Inspired by the warm blush of a cheek, this warm tone is reflective of spring-summer weddings and romance.
Warm blush & soft skin would work well with my copper & blush moodboard, as featured last year.
Paintbrushes at the ready… Go!
