Colour trends: Summer/Autumn 2017
The emerging palette for 2017 sees two clear trends: Monochrome Metallic and Back to Nature
Monochrome metallic reflects our love of sophistication and classic, timeless looks. Think designer chic and hotel room style.
Back to Nature encapsulates the warmth and natural hues that we trust, from deep aubergine to dusky blue skies and the burnt reds and yellows of autumn leaves and sunshine.
Shades of Grey, white and black show off the architectural features of a space. They project a feeling of quality and calm. Layering monochromes with metallics and textures is the best way to add softness and light. Silvers and coppers provide the perfect partnership for monochrome schemes. Gold adds an extra element and can also be co-ordinated with off-whites and creams. Add woollen blankets, sheepskin rugs, or organza curtains to complete the look
Colours include Zeitgeist, Monogram, Chapelle, Almost Grey, Moonstone Grey, Exposition Gris, Dutch White, Marble Dust, Pantry White, Stainless Steel, Starlight, Urban Pearl and Copper.
Back to Nature
This palette embodies the rich variety found in nature, with deep, burnt tones, muted greens and blues and yellows reminiscent of holidays. This look creates feelings of belonging, authenticity and relaxation where the key is colour co-ordination.
Colours include Whiting, Pale Oak, Sung Blue, Swedish Blue, Delphinium, Deep Adam Green, Moorish Yellow, Lamplighter, Fresh Plaster, Etruscan Red, Arabian Red, Damson and Russet.
