Interior / June 22, 2018 / Oriane.
We spoke to a collection of established interior designers and asked for their predictions of the colour trends we can expect to see on the interiors scene. Featuring dark colour schemes and palettes of pinks that can be used across the home, we provide you with the latest interior colour trends you need to know about.
Mixing different textures, contemporary furniture with brown antiques and vibrant colours to create a unique, beautifully bold room. Bright velvet cushions, a purple leather ottoman mixed with printed fabric, ceramic lamps and artwork, silk velvet sofas. Forget your bog-standard grey or neutral rooms, the only beige thing about this room is the suede walls, why use paint when you can use fabric?!
The textural elements of a room often get over looked. Interior designers are schooled and excel at this textural design secret, a neutral backdrop creates a welcoming interior when mixed with warm textures such as rough hewn wooden elements, shiny tiles, nubby linens, and brushed velvets. If walls are painted in a bright orange, for example, then the bold color takes center-stage, making any textural elements disappear into the backdrop. This is not necessarily a bad thing, when done properly, but it can make a room feel unwelcoming by omitting a layered, textural design.
Be bold. A dramatic sitting room with a basalt painted feature wall and citrus yellow shelving to highlight. An electric fire brings the room to life and looks fantastically real with its flickering flames and perfectly sawn, round logs that we recessed into the wall on each side. Leather sofas sit elegantly in the space with zingy velvet cushions that pop. I love the way this room sets a formal yet cosy atmosphere. Socialise with friends or recline the sofas and it is the perfect cinema room. To get the look: use dark paint, neutral flooring and furniture. Then let it pop with accessories. Add a fire if you can for warmth and a beautiful focal point.
