Interior / May 2, 2018 / .
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!
Your home should speak to who you are. It should be like a personal memoir of your trips, your loves, your life. There is nothing worse than walking into someones home to be greeted by beige walls, brown furniture and one mass produced print on the wall, pretending to be art. The above mentioned room just screams BORING! and we know our readers are far from boring. So, do not be shy when it comes to your home decor.
With consumers becoming more aware of how their throw-away shopping habits affect the planet, is already seeing a move towards handmade and eco-friendly products that have character and longevity. Imperfections are being embraced, and natural finishes such as these raw pink plaster walls are cossetting in our hectic lives. Toughen them up with a contrasting element, hard with soft. Hard materials seen here such as leather, steel and wood are contrasted by the soft hand-woven jute rug, linen cushions and houseplants. Tones of terracotta, cream and sage work well with this pink palette and can be added to your room with throws, rugs and cushions. And if you want to add a touch of glamour, throw in a couple of brass candlesticks or picture frames.
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.
