Bold Bright Barrier Planters

22nd June 2015

Dark Grey maybe the new Black but bold & bright is also Back.

Colour trends in 2015

We are using more bold & bright primary colours to add vibrance to white and grey interiors. These retro/modern colours haven't been so popular since the 1970/80's and I'm glad they're back.

Bold & Bright Cars

My first car was an second hand Orange 1972 'K Reg' Mini Clubman. Orange is can also be seen making a come back with the latest Mini.

These bright colours look great in Modern offices. Here are some pictures from a recent Interior Planting Scheme that we installed in the Midlands.

Main Reception:

A 1.6m long Barrier trough finished in Acid Yellow looked a treat from as you walked into Reception. It also screened the entrance into the main open plan offices and was planted with dark green Cordyline plants.

 Walkway into the Open Plan offices:

We used a line of Lime Green Planters alongside the walkway from the Main Reception into the open plan offices. At the end of this walkway we used a line of four barrier planters to screen the main office from the Reception entrance and to guide people to go left or right.

Open Plan Offices

Open Plan offices often need strategic screening. Instead of using plain white or grey screens, healthy living and breathing Plant Screens make a much better alternative.

Having Plant displays in staff break out areas is a great way of creating a relaxing and welcoming 'Chill out zone'.
