This year, Tour de France, the great cycling race, starts off in the northern region of Yorkshire and to say that the county has embraced it would be an understatement. With every bend, road and field featuring different decorations – from yellow bikes cleverly hung on walls, to fields displaying ‘Welcome to Yorkshire’ signs – it seems everybody has caught the Tour de France fever.


Here at Crown, we love interior design and in our eyes, almost anything can spark inspiration. It may not be an obvious trend, but cycle inspired homeware seems to be more popular than ever. We love these cushions designed by Ella Doran, which would just go perfect with our beautiful and subtle grey, Spotlight.

And it’s not just accessories featuring bikes that people are going crazy for. Some are bringing their bikes indoors and making a feature out of them by hanging them on walls – that’s what we call adding personality!

It’s a tournament that means many things to many people. And as well as plenty of amazing football, this year’s World Cup promises to deliver some truly inspiring uses of colour too.

Whether you love or loathe the beautiful game, as the tournament gets underway there’s no denying it’s going to be a truly stunning spectacle. Big and bold, World Cup 2014 promises to showcase colour like never before – providing a fiesta of original ideas that can be used to create and inform bright, fresh interior and exterior designs.

The tournament set the tone as it launched on Thursday with a dazzling light show – drenching Rio’s Christ the Redeemer monument in the colours of every team strip.

And just like the host nation, this is an eclectic, wide-ranging palette that doesn’t hold back. Using it means being brave – combining shades and textures to create a style that mimics Brazil’s melting pot culture to create unique, on-trend spaces. There’s certainly plenty to choose from.

As well as the shimmering style of carnival – combining hot shades with textured metallics – there’s Brazil itself, defined by the vivid greens and lush tropical shades of the rainforest landscape and the sugary, dusky pinks of its mountain-framed sunsets.

Then there are those amazing kits. Brazil’s strip is as iconic as their playing style – upfront, in your face and jubilant and the yellow and green combination says everything about the country’s strong sense of national pride.

Both colours are great for creating bright, feature walls or for using more sparingly to inject new life into tired and outdoor spaces.

So sit back and prepare to be inspired!
