Summer-ise your home. Let the sunshine into your life and space. It’s easy with our colour of the month, yellow.
Why is yellow our colour of the month?
It’s the sunniest colour in the spectrum and one of the most uplifting. Yellow represents warmth, comfort, energy and power. Plus it’s also linked to feelings of hope, faithfulness and devotion.

Yellow also signifies a desire for a fresh start and hope for a better future. It’s the ideal colour for a new year.
What’s on-trend about yellow?

Louis Vuitton, Versace and Ralph Lauren all played with pastel, lemony yellows, while Issey Miyake, Elie Saab and D&G used stronger, brighter yellows with very happy results.
