Today I share with you our interior design colour forecast for this spring/summer 2019, exploring the top 8 Pantone colour ideas to try for the year ahead and rug recommendations that fit into each:
Just seeing this colour signals excitement! Adding depth and intensity, Jester Red combines rich elegance with urbanity. This might be an unexpecting colour for spring/summer but taking colours that usually dominate another season has become quite a trend.
A deep blue reminiscent of the midnight sky, thoughtful Eclipse is both serious and mysterious. Blue has been a popular colour in homes for a few years and it isn’t going anywhere soon. In fact, it is becoming a base colour for many spaces. Recently we have seen it in accessories and furniture, like pillows, throws and entire sofas covered in the royal colour are becoming a prominent staple in a room.
Sweet Corn tempts with its soft and buttery attitude. Warm and creamy shades of white are sure to never go out of style nor clash with existing furnishings as it makes for one comforting go-to hue. Variations of white are to become more year-round staples.
Once again the power of pink will have a lasting effect this spring. The tantalizingly theatrical Pink Peacock fans out to a feast for the eyes. It’s not only a colour that grabs attention, but it has that instant glow that is attached to it.
Terrarium Moss is a deep green that evokes lush countrysides and flourishing foliage, depicting the beauty of the natural world. From muted to moody, this deep green colour trend can work to emulate the feeling of lush botanicals and the healing power of nature in your home while setting the tone with a strong foundational hue.
Princess Blue, a majestic royal blue hue, glistens and gleams. There are abundant variations of blue out there - charcoal blue, ice blue, grey-blue, and very pale powder blue. All are great options when looking for paint colours that are far from every day yet subtle enough to not take over a room. There’s no limit to the number of routes you can go with this exacting tone.
Brightening our day, sunny Aspen Gold stimulates feelings of joy and good cheer. For those looking for a pop of colour, Aspen Gold is great for instantly creating rich focal accents and works as a smart paint colour for accent walls and even trimmings.
Grounded and strong, Brown Granite is understated, authentic and timeless. The popular 70’s hue looks fresh again thanks to a newfound appreciation for everything natural yet moody. A great grounding colour that offers more versatility and pairs beautifully with shades of lilac.
