TREND ALERT: 2018 A/W INTERIOR COLOURS

May 23, 2018 | JJ Taylor

 

There are four beautiful new colours for this season! If you’re looking to spruce up your space for autumn and winter, perhaps a colour change is just what you need.

 

COLOUR TREND #1 – EARTHY TONES

We’re seeing a lot of earthy hues in both furniture and homewares at the moment.

While there are loads of different tones that might be considered “earthy”, the focus here is on those really warm hues with a bit of a reddish tint to them. Think clay, burnt umber, tan, russet, mahogany, and chestnut. Having a bit of warmth in your interiors will really go a long way, especially now that the weather’s a bit colder.

TIP: Brown leather sofas, dining chairs, and ottomans present an easy and effortlessly stylish way to work this colour into your interiors.

COLOUR TREND #2 – MIXED METALLICS

With this colour trend, it’s all about accents. You want to use metallics with a light hand. A hint of iridescence carefully placed against a neutral backdrop can transform a space from casual to chic, but too much metallic can be just that – too much.

TIP: A few scatter cushions with metallic designs on their covers; a metallic gold lamp; a few copper pots on a wooden shelf; a side table with a dimpled bronze surface or metal accents on the legs; a statement wall mirror with an ornate silver frame. Any one – or any combination – of these can be all you need to master this colour trend.

COLOUR TREND #3 – MOODY BLUES

These ‘moody’ blues are truly timeless. Blue has been a colour of choice since antiquity. It’s a colour of royalty, and also a lot of peoples’ favourite colour. If it’s yours, then this is a particularly excellent colour trend to jump on board with!

TIP: You can then complement these blue focal points with accents in lighter or darker shades of blue, depending on your base colour. Cushions, ottomans, throw rugs, vases, tableware – the options are endless.

COLOUR TREND #4 – SOFT SAGE

Sage is 2018’s reigning neutral champion. This calming tone has soared in popularity over the last year, and it’s easy to see why. There are a few different shades of sage, ranging from an earthy, mossy green hue to a pale, almost silvery tone.

TIP: you can use this trend with wall art, cushions, table linen, tableware, and elsewhere. It’s also popping up in furniture, particularly in upholstered seating.
