Beige, grey, and green: Subtle colours for a harmonious home

The longing for comfort, tranquillity, and nature is reflected in the colour trends for 2018. Soft pastels and subdued natural and neutral tones dominate the wall design colour palette. With a mixture of various subtle tones, you can create harmonious contrasts for a relaxed atmosphere. The design line Gira E3 makes for a stylish finish to these trend colours.

Tasteful colours for every home: Contrasts in pastel

Whether sky blue, lavender, or mint green: pastel tones combine well in multiple ways

Light greys are an unobtrusive partner of every other trend colour, and can influence the spatial effect of a room. Rose, coral, or apricot lend a feminine note to a room without becoming kitsch. A beige or light amber, or terra cotta yellow wall in combination with mauve grey and anthracite make for an even friendlier feel. Matte pastels with their high proportion of grey create an exceptionally sophisticated look.


The perfect frame for the design line Gira E3

The design variants of the design line Gira E3 show how versatile neutral or natural colours can be. The frames come in nine subtle tones, from light to dark grey, sand and grey-beige, to umbra – you can combine the frames with inserts in pure white or contrasting anthracite. In this way, the refined design becomes the perfect finishing touch to your interior.

An elegant balance: Matte green sets the tone

Also for this year, green remains a key colour in wall design. For the colour of the year, the expert Caparol selected a deep, dark, exquisite forest green. With this tone you can establish the peaceful feeling of a stroll in the forest – right in your livingroom. .

Floral rose and soft red nuances offer a hint of romantic exoticism. Also, an intensive ocean blue or a fresh arctic blue can bring a calming effect to the subdued green tones. The blue shades can, for example, be combined with a smoky emerald green, light mint, or a wall colour in a faded grey-green, like Morgentau by Alpina. Architecture and untreated wood furniture set a homey, warm contrast to the cool colour concept. On the wall, Gira’s switch series E3 with a grey-green or blue-green cover underlines the Nordic, airy design.

Matte colours instead of rich touches

The interplay of subtle berry tones, earthy olive, and a deep night blue is particularly elegant. For an excellent completion of this colour palette, you can use the Gira Esprit Linoleum-Plywood design line in dark blue, light grey, or anthracite.

Whether Nordic calmness, sensual elegance, or soft comfort: colour combinations with matte pastel or natural tones connect the desire for harmony and peace, offering a great variety of options. With subtle colours in your home you can experiment without taking too big of a risk.
