Black, white, grays and charcoal still in vogue for 2012

The versatility of black, charcoal, white and beige will still be in vogue this season. Elegant color schemes can be developed with the range of colors called Re- Set from Dulux. Classic whites, beiges and silver grays are being used with metallic and soft pewter finishes.

A more casual look can be achieved by going back to basics and keeping it simple using off white, grey, charcoal with touches of timber. An inside out feel is achieved by repeating the same colors in the outdoor areas. The trend of darker shades for outside spaces will this year be replaced with soft whites and grays.

The aim is to create a sense of spaciousness and accentuate natural light inside and out. The classic less is more and back to simplicity as a backdrop is highly desired.
