Happy, cheerful, jolly, sunny….. there are a hundred ways to describe yellow! And we just love our April colour of the month: sumptuously golden mid-century yellow, Beeswax Candle (Y1-B1-1) for an upbeat, modern take on the retro-inspired home.

Part of our 2019 Colour Forecast’s Luxury colour story, Beeswax Candle is undeniably autumnal echoing the mid-century period which calls for clean design and uncluttered spaces. Used in just the right amount, it’s perfect for a sunny, grown up interior.

Warm, sophisticated and inviting, Beeswax Candle is a great colour to introduce to your home during the cooler months. With the power to brighten a dark space and warm up a cool room, use it in the right amount or according to your taste for maximum effect so it doesn’t become overpowering.
