We’re feeling blue and loving it. The colour that dominated the runways for the Spring 2018 fashion collections in New York is finally making its way into homes.

In colour psychology, blue creates a feeling of calmness and serenity; its darker tones signal security, stability and sophistication.

Laminates already come in a huge variety of designs, such as wood, stone, fabric, and metal, as well as in the usual solid colours. What more could you ask for?

The experts at the Pantone Color Institute have gazed into their crystal ball and released their colour palette forecast for the first half of 2019.

We love that the palette is made up of wonderfully organic tones that are closely tied to nature and can be easily translated into a home environment. Read on to find out how you can embrace this multi-dimensional trend with Lamitak laminates.
