AKD LOVES GREEN AND GOLD

Derived from the wattle tree, our national colours are a natural pairing.

An analogous scheme is formed when colours sitting side by side on the colour wheel are paired together, such as green and yellow. Although often over-looked in interiors, they are often found playing fondly together in nature, evoking a sense of serenity and harmony.

Drawing on the inspiration of Mother Nature, it’s a wonder we don’t consciously couple this patriotic pair indoors more often.  

Would you consider injecting a green and gold combination in to your home? Who dares wins I say!
