Weathervane R216B

Into the Wild

Stormy greys and ocean blues can conjure up the dramatic feel of the wilderness, but when used indoors they can make any room feel like the perfect winter retreat.

Mirror the serenity found in isolated Nordic landscapes by using silver shades of grey such as Valspar’s ‘Ganymede’ (R2C). Hues of blue are a must to maximise the wintery feel of this trend, so pair with a deep navy such as ‘Mythical Nights’ (R198A), to create an idyllic space to relax in.



Top tip from Sue Kim, Senior Colour Designer at Valspar: “There is beauty to be found in the wild and this trend perfectly mirrors that. It works in any room, especially bedrooms, working to create a haven amongst the chaos. These serene shades work best when paired with exposed wood and stonewashed fabrics.”

The wilderness trend creates a brave contemporary look, but if you find it’s not quite for you, then use Valspar’s Love Your Colour Guarantee® to buy a different shade and get your money back on the first. It’s the perfect chance to try something new in 2020.
