Interior / June 25, 2018 / .
The use of colour in interior decor is extremely important for bringing personality and character to a room. Even simply adding a pop of colour can change an interior space dramatically, whether it be through a daring paint colour choice or by adding a variety of home accessories and furniture. Previous interior colour trends have seen minimalistic neutral interior colour schemes and pastel colour palettes, we have a feeling this years interior colour trends will be a lot more daring.
You can literally turn any wall of your home into your own personal art gallery. Everyone should display some form of art in their home, whether it is a rare oil painting or a cherished drawing from your childs pre-school days. The road block that most encounter is how to properly hang art. The best way to ensure there are no mistakes, and nasty nail holes to fill, is to trace and cut-out the frames outline on paper. Simply tape the paper cut-outs onto your wall, trying numerous placement options until you have the desired outcome.
The indigo blues are still in fashion but recently we tend to use it through accessories and art, rather than large joinery items or furniture pieces. Together with an element of gold or brass, these create a rich composition, even in a new build apartment. Scaling it down and refining rich tones helps to animate the atmosphere while ensuring that even the most conservative of clients have a fashionable interior. We will always ensure that those pieces are easily replaceable if the fashion changes. This style of combining trends/colours gives us an opportunity to be creative within our environment.
There is a general trend of people moving away from grey and very neutral schemes and increasingly embracing bolder, deeper-hued tones for walls and kitchen cabinetry, rather than limiting bolder colours to accent accessories and cushions. This is a guest room I recently completed in a traditional country house setting, although the colour would work just as well in a city bedroom or study. The depth of pigment in the salmon peach walls lends a masculine tone to what could otherwise be quite a feminine room and the overall effect is more modern.
