Overmat stands for quality in treatment, finishing and maintenance of flooring. But we’ll take it to the next step! This year, we hope to inspire you, on a monthly basis, with trends on interior design and colour(-usage). Stylist Ms. Marloes Wolfs provides us with an inside view in her discipline and shows us how the Floorservice products can be integrated in these trends.
A new year, a new colour!
In these trend reports, colour is an important topic. Nothing as versatile and widely applicable as colour! In order to provide direction within the trends, the Dutch paint-manufacturer “Flexa” (Axzo Nobel) always chooses a “colour of the year”. This year the colour of choice is “Heart Wood”.
“We have chosen this colour in order to let you get back in touch with the calming and serenity of nature’s naturel colours”. Heart Wood provides different effects in various combinations and depending on light influences. This allows the colour to range from pink, to beige or even lilac.

Natural colours and earth-tones
An important base of these colours, and some of the striking trends for 2018, is their link to nature. Warm earth-tones like clay and aubergine match perfectly to Heart Wood. Brown-tones will also reappear more often and fit perfectly in this colour-pallet.
Various colour-ranges, perfectly fitting to the Heart-Wood trend, are to be found within the Floorservice assortment. Think of our wide range of brown-tones and greyish tones with a slight hint of purple.
For a deep and warm brown tone you might want to choose a thermo-treated ash-wood. By covering this with the Floorservice Color hardwax-oil Profiline – Tanami ( with its distinct metallic look) and an end-sheen of Floorservice hardwax-oil Classic – Glossy, you’ll create an extra shiny metallic look with lots of depth plus vivid colour. A very special and catchy effect guaranteed!
Is your treatment of choice a combination of our Prime Stain colour – Wyoming (on oak), with a finish of Hardwax-oil FF matte, you will create a very soft earth-like colour. The undertone of the Hearth-Wood colour fits perfectly to the naturel but lightly greyish wood-tone created. It even brings-out a slight “old-pinkish” tone which goes very well with the pink/purple glow in de paint-tone.

Practical colours and practical gains!
Whereas the choice for a deep brown tone combined with Heart Wood creates a rich and saturated finish, the combination of Prime Stain Wyoming and hardwax-oil FF matte makes for a lighter experince; emphasising the purple undertone of the Heart Wood. By choosing hardwax-oil FF you’ll profit from its versatile application possibilities. This oil is suitable as a finish on various substrates with ditto primer-options. Hardwax-oil FF comes in the following versions: Satin, Matte and Ultra-Matte.
