In a world of ambiguity, there's something comforting about the reliability of mathematics and science. While languages change, numbers stay the same, unifying us no matter where we are in the world.

This design trend encourages us to look at our homes in an analytical way; to set objectives and identify tangible goals in order to live the best life we can. The hues that make up this trend are sophisticated and sleek: a carefully curated blend of masculine neutrals, such as putty, plaster and brick, and full bodied accent colours, like dark emerald, bright teal, scarlet and ochre.

If creating a thoughtful home appeals to you, why not try incorporating some of the key neutral colours of this trend into your existing interior? These measured and mature neutrals work well when paired with natural materials, such as dark wood, marble, oak and concrete. If you’d like to add a graphic edge, use a stencil to paint a meaningful number in a vivid accent shade, such as teal or scarlet, on any wall that you’d like to draw attention to.
