From serene bedrooms to lively living spaces, the versatility of Blue Nova allows for endless creative possibilities. Blue Nova's deep, rich undertones create a perfect backdrop for a range of complementary colours. Customers should consider pairing it with soft neutrals like creamy whites or sandy beiges for a soothing atmosphere. Alternatively, experimenting with contrasting shades such as mustard yellows or warm corals will inject energy and warmth into a space. Blue Nova possesses a unique quality of transforming its appearance under varying lighting conditions. In natural light, it emanates a soothing and peaceful aura, while artificial lighting accentuates its bold and dynamic features. 2024 colour trends: Beyond Blue Nova While Blue Nova CC-860 takes centre stage, other exciting colour trends are expected to shape design choices in 2024. Here are some trends to keep an eye on: Earthy tones with a twist Building on the natural colour trends of previous years, 2024 introduces a fresh take on earthy tones.

These colours bring a sense of innovation and connectivity to interior spaces. Biophilic hues Biophilic design, which incorporates natural elements into interiors, continues to gain momentum.
