Blush has been one of the most popular colours since 2016. Not only is it versatile, but it’s a great way to add warmth to a room without going overboard. 

Blue reminds us of being outdoors and works best paired with white and green. Due to it’s hue, blue can be used in so many ways and unlike yellow, doesn’t have to be kept to small doses.
