Aah nearly at this end of the 2015 palette! This is the penultimate colour and one of my absolute favourites.
A glorious dark, graphite grey. Team it with acid yellows, soft pinks or fiery oranges and you’ve got a contemporary classic or tone it down with white, softer greys, beige and taupes for a traditional feel.
However you want to style it, Titanium will work in any setting.
It’s no surprise then that Farrow and Ball’s ‘Downpipe’ is one of their best-sellers. I went to a F&B talk, earlier in the year, and apparently there’s even a fan-club dedicated to it.
This colour features heavily in my own home. I love how it can be mixed and matched with everything. Much softer and more elegant than black but edgier than brown or blue. It’s the perfect foil for any other colour and, up ’til now, I still haven’t found anything it doesn’t go with.
I love it.
So back to homeware for these picks. I could have gone for fashion again like the last post but really wanted to see what lovely homeware I could find, to drool over. And there was LOADS. I certainly wasn’t disappointed! In fact there was so much to choose from, it was really hard to curate just 8 pieces.
But here they are:
1. Grey Wire Mesh Memo Board — Rose & Grey
2. Felt Weave Shade — Next
3. Grey Metal Lantern — Zara Home
4. Jacqard Weave Cushion Cover — H&M
5. Archie Dining Chair — Blue Sun Tree
6. Marcell Media Unit — Made.Com
7. Balthazar Table Lamp — Loaf
8. Knitted Throw — Marks & Spencer
This is the second grey shade to feature in this year’s palette.
The first was Glacier Grey; much, much cooler and, personally, I’d find it a little tricky to live with.
Titanium — on the other hand — is a lovely warm shade — lots of red in the mix — and feels cosy yet cool, in an interior setting, in equal measures.
The next shade is the last in this series. But don’t panic — given the fact that there are over 2000 solid colours in the Pantone system — this feature can run for quite a while yet :)
