WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE: PINE
Offering a more refined and sophisticated approach to previous colour trends, deep shades of pine and forest green are taking the leap from nature into everyday interiors. These earthbound shades of green create a fresh and elegant accent on cushions, lounges, drapes and rugs, inspiring an ambient setting that is peaceful and balanced. Diverging away from summer tones such as emerald and citrus, pine evokes the deepest and darkest depths of the forest in an organic style statement, especially when complemented with pastel shades like dusty pink and apricot.
ROMANCE IN FULL BLOOM: LILAC BLUSH
Think of a warm and captivating sunset and that is what embodies this stylish and sophisticated colour trend. With an array of sweet and dreamy shades, from lilac suede to possum pink, Blush comprises an almost neutral colour palette that is soft and subtle. A dusting of these tones will bring a warm and graceful air to tired interiors, adding a classic touch to furnishings and drapes. Pair a blush pink with a stormy blue to create a style statement that is simultaneously bold and refined. Or, to create an aesthetic that is more versatile, blend soft pastels with raw elements such as concrete and timber for organic tones and gorgeous natural textures.
BLUES OF THE ABYSS: STORM
Deep, dark and moody, Storm is a captivating colour spectrum that acts as a focal point in any environment. A stunning range of inky and rich blues create an aesthetic that is reminiscent of the ever-changing shades of the ocean. With colours that develop tone according to natural light and space, this versatile palette has the power to transform any interior, creating a perfectly luxurious ambience when used in abundance. Alternatively, incorporate this deep rich hue in more subtle ways, using delicate blue florals in traditional settings, or pairing with sharp geometric designs for a refreshing and vibrant approach.
Indeed, a splash of colour can transform any interior into a new space! With Mother Nature as the inspiration, this trio of tones will bring a fresh perspective to your home, allowing the earthy colour palette of any landscape to come alive on walls, floors and furnishings.
