It’s always a wise idea to think about what you’re going to use your new glass extension for before you start building it, as well as how you plan to decorate it. That way, you know you’re going to be happy with the end result and won’t end up wasting money unnecessarily on something that you’re only going to be happy with for a couple of months.

Paying close attention to the latest trends in interior design can certainly prove fruitful when it comes to home décor, especially if you’re new to decorating and aren’t quite sure what you like and what you don’t.

If you’re looking for a fresh new colour for the walls at home, what about taking a look at Pantone’s new Colour of the Year – Living Coral.

As Laurie Pressman, vice-president of the Pantone Color Institute, explains: “Colour enhances and influences the way we experience life. As a shade that affirms life through a dual role of energising and nourishing, Pantone 16-1546 Living Coral reinforces how colours can embody our collective experience and reflect what is taking place in our global culture at a moment in time.”

If you’re not keen on having this shade on your walls, it would make a lovely accent colour and the Institute recommends that you make excellent use of cosy blankets, shag rugs and lush upholsteries in order to create a truly nurturing, comforting and warm feeling at home. And let’s not forget that you can use it to great effect as a big splash of colour if you’re looking to make a statement through the use of decorative accessories or wall art.

Also have a look at the Dulux website to see what they expect to be big news for colour in our homes over the next 12 months. We’re particularly taken with the warm yellows and mustards that the company predicts will be here, there and everywhere in 2019… and you’re advised to remember that you don’t need to throw colour at every wall at home in order to make an adventurous statement and achieve a daring look.

Try to experiment with smaller architectural details that you may have to play with, using these shades to transform them into something seriously special that will really show your home off at its best.

It’s also going to be all about bringing the outdoors in this year and what could possibly be better than having a glass conservatory or extension to achieve this with ease? The big panes of glass really help to create a unique look and feel at home, and you’ll be seriously amazed at the amount of natural light that comes flooding in.
