Decorating your home may at first sound easy, but finding the right tonal palette to suit how you want the room to look can be difficult. No matter how many paint swatches you do on your walls, sometimes you just want to give up and repaint the walls white! Though we know this is a classic shade that can do no wrong, sometimes we just want to have our homes reflect our personality and to be a warm homely place for us to retreat to after a long day at work or busy weekend.
To help those who are stuck for inspiration, below we have put together five on-trend colours that will put a smile on your face this year and have your home worthy of an interior decorations magazine.
Dark Saturated Blues and Greens
Bring the beauty of nature into your home with darker saturated colours that will provide plenty of punch, but still creating a relaxing ambience. Choose from a range of dark but vibrant blues and greens like Yves Klein blue, turquoise, forest green and dark lime.
These moody tones are perfect for living rooms and bathrooms, simply inviting you to curl up in a blanket or take a deep bubble bath.
Announced as Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2019, it would be rude not to adhere to this trend. A colour that is brimming with optimism, it would be the perfect injection of positivity to children’s bedrooms and the kitchen.
Feel pretty in pink and decorate your walls with a mixture of blush and warm rose. Tones of pink are also a popular décor choice as they bring both warmth, cosiness and femininity to a home. Pretty blush tones and dusky pinks are compatible with many other soft shades, like creams and greys – so a fitting colour for a bedroom.
An unusual décor choice, lilac always seem to pale in comparison when compared to the versatility of pink and blue, but it can really help create an atmosphere of a room. To avoid childish or grandmother connotations, keep the decor in the room modern and stylish, and make it the colour of choice for a room with big windows and plenty of natural light.
There has a been an abundance of terracotta and rust tones in autumnal fashion trends, yet it can really create a stunning summery impact in your living areas. Providing plenty of rustic warmth, stepping into a terracotta room will instantly transport you to nostalgic memories of warmer climates. We recommend that you keep terracotta shades to hallways, living rooms and dining rooms.
