Stop! Discover a red kitchen made by Puustelli – designed using NCS Colour Trends 2024+

Puustelli has relaunched a kitchen featuring trend colors, designed by Stefan Nilsson, also known as Trendstefan, using the NCS Colour Trends 2024+ palette.

The kitchen is based on the colours from trend direction "Heart / Stop" in NCS Colour Trends 2024+.

The trend kitchen is a "Miinus" recyclable model, featuring sustainable materials, components, and production methods for a more eco-friendly alternative to industrial kitchen construction.

Aligned with future preferences
Puustelli and Stefan Nilsson are launching a trend kitchen, aiming to create bespoke kitchen solutions for the future. The kitchen, which showcases Puustelli's ability to create bespoke interior design, follows the success of last year's successful launch of the trend kitchen.

Developing trend colours
NCS Colour collaborates with international color experts to produce interdisciplinary trend forecasts, predicting 24 trend colors grouped into four palettes. The NCS System forms a descriptive model, identifying exact color positions and nuance. The Puustelli kitchen exemplifies the increasing embrace of chromatic colours, with pure red and reddish blue playing significant roles. Pure red represents action and intense feelings, while reddish blue represents intense desires. Stefan Nilsson believes red kitchens are both fun and exciting.

Diving deeper into the palette
The Heart/Stop palette from NCS Colour Trends 2024+ features pure red (-R), symbolizing positive feelings and stopping negatives. The combination of NCS S 1580-R and blue (NCS S 3050-R80B) is growing in interior design. Paler red can enhance the importance of red and create a sustainable space. The kitchen features two islands with rounded corners, exemplifying the trend direction Heart/Stop.

NCS - 45 years as colour experts


Colour research

The NCS System, launched in 1979, is a scientifically based colour notation system that defines, quality assures, and communicates colours on all surfaces. It allows for colour communication between all parties involved in the colour process, ensuring the result is exactly as intended. Today, it is used by architects, designers, material manufacturers, and retailers globally as a universal standard for colour communication.

40 years of NCS Production History

The NCS System, launched in 1979, has become the global colour reference for architects and designers, with products like NCS Index 2050 and CAPQ, continuously evolving while researching color perception and communication.

The NCS Colour Space, inspired by the Forsius Globe, was developed in the 1960s by Dr. A. Hård, Dr. L. Sivik, and Dr. G. Tonnquist. Launched as a Swedish national colour standard in 1979, the system has evolved with additional colours added in 1984 and a second edition in 1995, ensuring world-leading colour accuracy and consistency. Today, the NCS Standard Collection comprises 1,950 NCS Standard colours.

Revolutionising future colour communication

NCS Colour, based on the NCS System, offers innovative color solutions and management, with a global presence in over 80 countries.


The same colour must be produced on different materials and products from different manufacturers, making it crucial for people to recognize them. This is achieved through national and international standards, such as SIS, ISO, CEN, and CIE. NCS is a standardized colour communication system with colour notations and accurate samples, used in numerous standards and instructions for accurate colour specification.

Two Autumn DIY Painting Projects

As autumn approaches, it's an ideal time for DIY projects, whether they're exterior or interior improvements, to enhance the home's aesthetic appeal.

1. Maintaining the outside of your home
To prepare for cooler temperatures, give your home's exterior a thorough cleaning with a pressure washer. Apply a specialised detergent like Liquid Sugar Soap to remove grime, mould, and mildew, and let it sit for 5–10 minutes before rinsing. Use an extension wand for higher areas. Update your exterior paint to enhance visual appeal and protect your home from winter elements.

Hamilton's Professional Painter's Tape, a blue masking tape, can be applied and left for up to 14 days in direct sunlight, leaving no residue when removed.

2. Transforming a Kid’s Room into a Guest Room
As children grow, their bedrooms transform. Use the summer-to-autumn transition to transform a kid's room into a welcoming guest retreat. Declutter, keep cherished items, and use neutral colours for a serene ambiance. Paint, decorate, and transition seamlessly.

Autumn offers an ideal time for DIY home improvement projects, allowing for a fresher living environment and a chance to revive exterior and interior spaces.

We’ve all heard of Tiny Homes and the growing trend of people to down size – but what about the rise of Skinny Homes?

Situated in the Waterberg mountains of South Africa, the House of the Big Arch occupies an almost unseen presence in the wilderness of the existing natural reserve. Hidden amidst the dense trees is a long, narrow, skinny building designed by Johannesburg-based architecture studio Frankie Pappas, that appears to grow from a steep cliff out into the treetops.

Invest in 45.72 cm Paint Rollers

Invest in 45.72 cm rollers, paint tub, grid, and disposable tub liners for faster painting of large rooms or houses. Professionals use these tools, but some details are needed.

45.72 cm rollers are ideal for large-scale projects, especially when multiple rooms need painting and clearing.

These rollers are more labor-intensive than 22.86 cm rollers, especially when it comes to painting ceilings.

Good technique involves standing away from the wall, using a paint pole, and rolling the surface in a straight line, starting in the middle and alternating between passes.
