Interior / April 4, 2018 / .
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.
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.
What most of us do not understand is that interior design takes a very keen and knowledgeable eye. We may be out shopping and see something we love, but that does not necessarily mean that it will look perfect in our home. Interior designers understand how color, lighting, room size, scale, and placement all affect how items look in a room and dictates whether they will make or break a room design.
2018 is the year of the colour pop on the interiors scene and this living room completed by us last year perfectly illustrates how embracing bright colours will help you achieve a room that wows. This room really makes a statement with purposeful hits of bold colours in the deep sumptuous teal velvet on the seating, vibrant yellow lighting and splashes of pink in the accessories it creating a fresh, energised and personality packed room. The statement art above the sofa incorporating all the colours in the scheme brings cohesion and cements those colour pops!
