Red, over the rainbow
Colours and materials
The colour of Christmas, of a burning log fire, the symbol of new energy and rebirth. Let’s find out how to warm up the home and make it more welcoming with the latest “hot” colour.
Every season has its colours. Summer is packed with various shades of blue, while in winter, the colours orange and red dominate dusk time which leads up to the long, cold December and January nights. Then there are times during the year which are intrinsically linked to specific colours. For instance, if you think of the colour red right now, what springs to mind? Christmas, a burning log fire, a warm, radiant and welcoming home.
The colour red embodies our desire for joyful reunions. Decorating the rooms of your home, the kitchen and living room in particular, injects some festive fun into your surroundings. The colour palette for Christmas 2018 focuses first and foremost on red, followed by classic shades of gold, silver, blue and total white. And if we feel like having some fun and creating new colour combinations? Among the new offerings this year, the mix of fabrics and patterns in bright colours such as red, mustard and petrol green are ideal for creating the perfect folk style. Or how about plenty of gold on elaborate decorative patterns and damask fabrics in dark hues filled with brown, blue and burgundy for a more sumptuous Rococo style?
Red kitchens are magnetic, and completely eye-catching. Red is the highest colour in the rainbow, the first shade that a newborn can discern. Like a child, the attraction to red is irresistible!

The attraction of a red kitchen also characterises its beating heart and the ability of this colour to adapt to various shapes and materials.
In the Flux kitchen, metallic red emphasises straight lines and sinuous forms and - in this case too - makes it possible to play with colour combinations that make every composition truly unique. For those who like to fill the kitchen with passion!
"Bright reds – scarlet, pillar-box red, crimson or cherry – are fun and youthful. There’s definitely a red for everyone".
These were the words of Christian Dior. Ruby Red is the high-intensity hue that defines the polished glass elements in the Font collection.
This is not a common colour, and it breaks the mould from more traditional hues, to clad red bathroom furnishings with light and create something truly novel.
“The dreams that you dare to dream really do come true” as Judy Garland sang in the famous film “The Wizard of Oz”.
Red is a dream come true, especially now that it’s Christmas and we want to fulfil our dream of finally feeling at home.
