Colour Design Trends 2019
This years colour blast is way overdue! So to give us a spring in our stride and step in to spring, we’ve come up with a list of Interior Design colour trends to brighten up your days and look forward to freshening things up this coming season!
Heres 6 reasons to get excited with colour this year...
We all thought those dowdy browns are way gone but now a spoon or a pot full of honey is all you need! Spiced honeybee Dulux is all about “awakening, kindness, resilience and optimism” and inspired by “the varied tones and remarkable properties of honey — natural, timeless and enduring, protective, rejuvenating and healing.” The browns felt that the world needed a great big warm honey earth coloured hug that would make you feel warm and cozy at any time of the day.
Are the greens the new greys? Greens are everywhere in interiors right now. It’s synonymous with nature and calming qualities, leafy botanicals and the great outdoors, which could explain it’s popularity for creating a contented home.
From rich dark greens to the light and uplifting ‘appley’ tones, greens can be used all over the home and have a powerful, restorative quality. Used in home offices, green shades aid contemplation and deep thought, and in any room have a calming soothing quality, so go get your greens!
Far from the true meaning of ‘the blues’ this wonderful colour with all its shades will always make you feel good.
Adding a touch of drama to rooms, the dark blues will give so much depth and delight to even the smallest room, and we promise, wont make it look smaller!
My favourite blue of the moment is a Farrow and Ball ‘De Nimes’. This quietly elegant blue feels wonderfully down to earth. It can be used on anything from a kitchen island to an airy drawing room, a small living room with roaring fire or a bathroom. De Nimes, like denim, with its blue hue is ultimately fashionable and yet always feels timeless.
Always my absolute favourite colour, so I’m so happy its still around!
Thank goodness there’s a lot of teal in the interiors world this season. Graham & Brown have embraced this glorious shade by naming ‘Tiru’ as ‘Colour Of the Year 2019’. This opulent shade has been especially popular thanks to the Eastern Asian influence trend.
Graham and Brown’s teal is inspiring a harmonious balance of flamboyant elements and other brands just work it so well teamed up with glamourous and lux shades of blush, lavenders and golds to really contrast and shine!
Pretty in nude pinks
We’ve had the striking rich colours so lets focus on our natural more feminine side.
A nude wall colour can go a long way to creating a soft and warming interior space. The paint range by Rockett st George, launched last month, features many delicious shades of nude. A rich nude is the perfect neutral tone to compliment trendy darker hues.
You’ll be surprised at how natural and calming and 'not too girly' these tones actually are when theyre on the walls, so we do recommend embrace it and give them a go!
They’re right on trend with the modern glamour, Scandi mixed with mix century of the moment and so are perfect for the living room, promoting a sense of well-being and happiness in the home.
The Ombré effect
Its not just hair that is creating this wonderful ‘merged’ colour palette this season, your walls are perfect for creating that washed out, washed in look too!
To create the perfect ombré look, grab your fave colours or different shades of the same and paint the top portion of your wall down beyond the colour divide point. It’s important to start at the top first, to avoid dripping on to the finished lower portion. Use small portions of masking tape to mark a horizontal line, to ensure that you keep your colour divide central. Where the two colours meet, use a slightly damp roller to apply a thin, feathered dividing line to create the merging of the two colours.
An ombré paint effect works best in rooms where you would love to relax, be it the living room, bathroom or bedroom. Due to the paint’s light and feathered look, it leaves a room feeling calm and soothing, plus giving it the total wow factor.
So there we ahve some Interior Inspirations for you, which I hope you can really go for, be bold and make a statement in your home! After all, its your space, your sancurary, you're get away from it all place, why not make it that extra bit special.
