Summer’s biggest blonde ambition is a platinum hit
Do blondes really have more fun?
If the age-old saying holds any truth, a whole horde of celebrities are about to have their biggest and brightest summers yet.
Throughout the spring season, we’ve noticed the major platinum blonde movement seizing Hollywood. A number of stars have made a visit to their colourists’ chairs to fulfil their platinum blonde ambitions.
Similarly, beige is the new comeback kid of décor in 2018.
What’s the common thread between the two trends? Answer: both trend’s absence of colour.
Beige as our pet neutral got left behind sometime after its’90s heyday, but some designers are giving beige-based neutrals a fresh look.
Beige can be soothing, sophisticated, flattering, rich and mellow, formal or casual, and a perfect launching pad for bolder décor choices.
Beige is open to interpretation. To some, it’s as light as off-white; to others, it goes all the way up to an earthy midtone.
Beige has many aliases — think ecru, buttermilk, biscuit, oatmeal, vanilla, almond, cafe au lait, camel, flax, sand, string, straw, dune, ivory, eggshell or chamois.
A sure-fire way to pick up a dated beige palette is to add contrast. With the warmth of brown and the coolness of white, beige is quite a discreet neutral that borrows cool or warm tones from surrounding colours, so you don’t have to stick to warmer colours to tease out its subtleties. Inky blues, rich amethyst and peacock turquoises are 2018’s best colour picks that’ll add instant luxury.
Be sure not to miss out on what this quiet achiever can accomplish, décor-wise.
