This month Dulux announced its Colour of the Year 2017. The winning tone is a shade of blue called Denim Drift.
This calm grey-blue tone is a soft, versatile blue – a bit like the sort of denim you might see on a sun-faded pair of vintage jeans – hence the name.
Blue tones are definitely making a comeback as we enter the Autumn/Winter season and we’ve taken a look at just a few of the flooring options you’ll find in our Surrey showroom which will blend or contrast perfectly with the Colour of the Year 2017.
Two tone walls and neutral flooring
Denim Drift is ideal to contrast with crisp whites or a dash of darker blues on the walls. A scheme like this lends itself to a neutral flooring choice with subtle shades to complement the look. Our perfect picks for this include
Alternative Flooring Quirky B Daisy Gloriosa Carpet
Kardean Portland Stone Luxury Vinyl Tile
Mix Denim Drift with brown earthy tones by introducing wood floors
Blues partner perfectly with warm, earthy colours so introducing wood flooring alongside blue tones creates a lovely contrast. Our picks include a traditional earthier oak and a contemporary clean light oak wood floor.
V4 Woodflooring’s Eiger Phoenix Titanium White Oak Floors
Karhs Oak Decorum Wood Floors
Add a rug to deliver or blend with Denim Drift styling
Deliver immediate Dulux Colour of the Year style with a Denim Drift inspired rug, or to create a lovely contrasting softness to the scheme pinks work well. Two of our favourites are
Brink and Campman Pearl Rose shaggy rug
Alternative Flooring Quirky Dotty Duck Egg rug
Serene blue bathrooms
This colour is a natural for bathrooms. Blue tones promote calm, relaxation and soft flowing water. Luxury vinyl flooring is ideal in the bathroom for looks and practical benefits. Teamed with blue tone walls our picks of vinyl flooring that deliver on colour of the year style include a contrasting wood look floor and a subtle Denim Drift diamond inspired option.
Karndean Knight Tile Mid Worn Oak
Rhino Step Avellino Grey/Blue Key Diamond Effect Vinyl Flooring
These are just a handful of ideas to inspire you to use Denim Drift in your interiors. The beauty of blues are the endless flooring options that work with them and our showroom is awash with them.
