Yesterday I sent a pair of funky little wall shades to a customer in London.  They featured a design I haven’t used for a while, but in contemporary colours.

It seems they are very much on trend as a double-page spread in the Times’ Bricks and Mortar supplement today announces that grey is taking over as the new neutral in interiors and will dominate homewares this autumn.
