Beautiful new colours by Jotun – Rhythm of Life

I grew up 20 minutes from the Jotun paint factory in Sandefjord, Norway. Here in the UK though, you can’t buy the new paint collection Rhythm of Life, but I wanted to show you some colour inspiration. I’ve decided to paint my home office / studio beige and will be...
