Update your interior décor with the latest colour trend: New Nordic Pastels - a modern take on summer's favourite hues. To help you get this look, Bemz is launching two new colours in our popular Panama Cotton fabric; Peach and Aqua, both essential for creating this unique style, and available for all Bemz covers. Starting today, April 25, you can get 10% off the New Nordic Pastels palette until May 2, 2013. So kick start summer by adding some easy Nordic elegance to your home with this bright, cool palette!
The modern New Nordic palette is a move away from sugary pastels, focusing instead on sublime bright shades, colour-blocked with stark white, neutral beige and refreshing hints of neon.
Colour-blocking, combining two or more larger blocks of solid colour, is the key to this look. Think serene Vanilla Yellow, Peach and Aqua colour-blocked with neutral Absolute White, Sand Beige and Silver Grey. Accents of primary colours True Blue and Grass Green, as well as refreshing hints of neon give the necessary playful touch.

A few examples of typical combinations are Vanilla Yellow with Silver Grey, Peach with Sand Beige and Aqua, and Peach with Vanilla Yellow, all set against a cool white base. Dashes of bright colour adds visual depth and interest to the otherwise minimalist interior.
New Nordic interiors are free from clutter. The living room’s clean lines are cool to the eye, with textiles adding warmth and comfort.
Furniture is simple and stylish, in materials like natural, unfinished wood. A sleek Söderhamn sofa with a Bemz cover in new Peach paired with accent cushion covers from the Bemz Artist Series collection to add a pop of colour.
Textiles are where the New Nordic look really comes into its own, making colour-blocking easy and affordable. Use Bemz sofa covers and chair covers in modern New Nordic Pastels as a base, while bringing the look together with cushion covers in neon digital print or trendy dip dye or ombré accents.
