Wendy Rennie, Haymes Colour and Concept Manager, says ‘embracing the old, aged, authentic or rustic offers the perfect alternative to the increasingly minimalist approach that we are seeing in interiors”.

“By incorporating items that add sentimental value, we can add a sense of our true selves back into a space, something that can quite often be lost along the way when following too closely to trends”.

“When we acknowledge and cherish those things that contribute to our story so far, we also leave room for the new.”

Slow Life features textured shades of iron, copper and taupe, all part of the Haymes Artisan Collection range of finishes.

Textured finishes and furnishings are a key element to creating authentic spaces, and the availability of textured wall coverings like the Artisan Collection makes it easy to incorporate subtle or bold texture to your interiors. Perfect for the minimalist wanting to corporate some subtle character into a space.
