THE WINNING BOARD FROM THE HEALS & GRAND DESIGNS PINTEREST COMPETITION

heals grand designs competition winner

We are pleased to announce that Thomas Lagan was the lucky winner of the recent Heals and Grand Designs Pinterest competition. Heals loved the way Thomas' board mixed Heals' designs with found images to create a sense of space. Evoking urban, city living, his rich palette of blue and grey tones was accented by gleaming copper finishes.

Grand Designs loves how Thomas has blended natural elements with a moody nautical vibe, and matched this in both theme and colour to some of the stunning pieces from Heals. The tonal palette selected is on trend for spring 2016, where Pantone 19-4049 Snorkel Blue and 16-1548 Peach Echo are key colours - the dark blues and greys that Thomas picked out, which are highlighted with flecks of gold, copper and orange reflect this perfectly.  

Thomas' inspiring board has won a £3,000 shopping spree at Heals, congratulations!
