In everything we do at polytec, we have a grey undertone to ensure all products connect - not compete. Grey is here for the long haul as a staple in our palette that underpins most schemes.
White is still significant. However, grey is the most significant in its influence of all other decorative finish colours - and can be seen across the board in solids, timbers, stones, through to metallics. One example is polytec's new Blossom White - which has a slightly grey tinge - that helps it connect with other products such as Caesarstone White.
In solids, a wider spectrum of grey is present - from mid-tone taupe greys through to mid-light cool greys, dark charcoal and near blue-black.
Grey makes it easier to mix and match products within the polytec range as well as products in other categories such as flooring, carpets and tiles. The addition of grey in a colour removes the 'starkness' of a colour. Grey helps to soften and make a colour feel more grounded or blended with other elements in a space.
Accessorising with Metallics
One micro interior design trend now seen within larger macro trends is the specification of metallic elements within a scheme. polytec metallic accents ranging from bronze, gold, copper, rose gold through to platinum - are appearing alongside our core range of solid, timber and stone products.
Many polytec products provide a 'chameleon effect' - allowing a colour to take on a different appearance or overall effect - depending on what other colours it's specified with. For example, a patterned product will take on a different look when it appears alongside a cool grey or a warm grey.
We're moving on from a past trend of specifying horizontal surfaces in one colour and vertical surfaces in another. On the increase is the use of colour blocking - specifying horizontal and vertical surfaces in a single colour.
