There are three responses to a piece of design — yes, no, and WOW! WOW is the one to aim for.

As you have probably noticed, our gorgeous new ‘Great Gatsby’ collection is full of stunning, rich, and bold colours. We thought it might be fun to show you a colour combination that you may not have thought of, let alone tried before. I would never have thought that red and purple together in a project could work, but, well, take a look at what our design team have done below, and Im sure, after seeing these, you too will be a convert.
