Graham & Brown Color of the Year 2021

As we start thinking about sheltering at home this winter I’m happy to share Graham and Brown Color of the Year 2021: Epoch – an emotive plum that encourages recharging while cocooning.

Each year, UK wallpaper and paint specialist Graham & Brown announces its Color of the Year along side their Wallpaper of the Year choice. Full of movement, color and exuberance, the Graham & Brown Wallpaper of the Year, Timepiece, marks the start of the 75th Anniversary celebrations of the brand which will run throughout 2021.

Timepiece is an amalgamation of prints dating from 1946 to the present day. The result is a striking wallpaper that stands to represent the essence of future and past designs.

In addition to the seasonal Amethyst color-way, Timepiece is also available in Moonstone (grey colorway) and Midnight (navy colorway)color options. And for the first time ever the design can also be produced as an amazing made-to-measure wall mural.
