Our latest show units are launching this weekend. We experimented with a variety of colour in these projects and looking forward to sharing the images with you. Watch the feed for an insight to the different colours & styles we choose in the two bed apartments and three bed duplex.
We are back in Howth after an exciting few days at the design shows in London. Its great to see such young vibrant, up and coming design coming through. We started at the Chelsea Design centre and ordered new fabric collections from Romo, Sanderson, William Morris & wonderful textured wallpapers from Casamance, all can be viewed at our office soon. We were thrilled to open up new accounts with House Of Hackney, La Maison Pierre Frey and La Gournay. We had a quick scout around Decorex, 100% Design, Design Junction and the London Design fair in the wonderful Old Truman brewery on Brick Lane. We visited the guys at Relay Design Agency to see their cool studio and view their Skandi funiture range for upcoming commercial projects.
As ever, every one wants to know what are the next big colours for 2019? Mustards, Buff, Honey, Gold, Muted Rose & French Blue are big contenders. We have chosen MUGA from Paint & Paper Library, GOLDEN HONEY from Sanderson, YELLOWPINK from Little Greene, SULKING ROOM PINK from Farrow & Ball, DE NIMES from Farrow & Ball as favourites. Below are some images of these shades coming through.
Botanical images are very popular on fabrics and wallpapers COLE & SON new collection BOTANICAL BOTANICA is a pure delight, bringing dramatic floral garden prints into your home.
Today we met with our new branding designer Marti to discuss rebranding Pollard Design. Business cards are so important to make a first good impression. We have decided to change the grey and bring colour back. I think most of us are tired of grey and want bold colours back. I also agree that a good quality card feels confident. I know its easy to look up contact details on our phones but I still like to have cards on my desk to remind me of different things. We are also going to upgrade our website and carry our new logo and branding theme right through. The website is such an important aspect of a business especially in our field, people want to see images and what looks we can achieve. I know most people don't have have the time to go searching and want instant images, so its important to have a website that is easy to navigate. January is a good time to get jobs like this on the road and hopefully we can unveil our new logo at House Event at the RDS this coming May. I suspect there will be a lot of tweaking of colours and type fonts as we need to get this just right so it looks good for years to come, although Marti was very positive and explained colours can be changed at no great expense if we change our minds down the line.
