We love nothing more than taking some time out with tea and biscuits to have a nose in the latest lifestyle and interior magazines. They are packed full of the latest trends from light shades and statement baths to copper kitchens and dramatic mirrors.
What we love most about what we do is that we can add new light shade designs and colours at anytime. With each lampshade being handmade in our Essex studio, we adore experimenting with the latest colour combinations and exploring new elements.
So what is on trend this autumn/winter?
Quite simply, it is the grey and yellow combination!
And we LOVE it!
You only need to browse a few pages on the Ideal Homewebsite to see exactly what we mean.
Yellow is the ultimate mood boosting shade, with a mellow undertone it is cheerful without being too in-your-face or in its boldest form will give rooms confidence and freshness. When teamed together, yellow and grey are a match made in heaven as the pair work in harmony with one another. Calming grey tones down the strength of yellow and in return the uplifting, warming shade gives grey a personality and strength it wouldn’t have on its own.
This colour scheme works perfectly in any setting; for instance, we love our Scion Spike Hedgehog grey and yellow lampshadefor a children’s bedroom. It is a bold light shade softened by an endearing design. It can be teamed with a delicate bedside lampfor those dreamy bedtime stories or as a pendant lampshade for a larger illumination.
The best thing about this fantastic colour combination is there endless variations. With so many different tones of grey available, it is very simple to achieve an understated soft look or a bold and eye popping finish.

Well, if you are not quite ready to reach for the paintbrush and make that yellow and grey change then we offer a very easy way to bring this trend into your home this season.
