It’s about that time of the year when we start fussing over home improvement projects and preparing for the festivities. We often come to a halt when deciding on colour schemes for our space because trends change with the seasons.

Based on Pantone’s colour reports, we’ve chosen some hues that are not only winter-worthy but are great for welcoming the new year with.
