Interior Colour Trends - Autumn/Winter 2018

As we say farewell to the summer heatwave and look forward towards autumnal evenings, followed by cozy dark winter nights we take a look at the colour trends for the seasons ahead.

We see three key themes emerging: autumnal elegance, the new neutral and shades of pink.

AUTUMNAL ELEGANCE

Our autumnal palette takes its inspiration from shades in nature, led by a full selection of greens. Green is emerging as the follow on trend from deep, inky blue -  and it’s easy to see why. Reassuring and calm, green is a classic choice: from deep sophisticated greens like Angelica and Deep Adam Green for furniture and front doors, to earthy neutral tones like Olive Laque and Tapestry Green for living room and bathroom walls, greens help to bring the outside in and create a sense of balance.

The autumnal palette is completed by shades of yellow and orange, echoing the low sun and falling leaves of the season. From muted, leafy shades such as Russet, Kitchen Gold and Jarosite, to the sunny shades of Lamplighter and Moorish Yellow, yellows and oranges are here to stay as a key trend.

The beauty of this palette is the way the tones work together to create your autumn palette. Use highlights of Deep Adam Green and Jarosite for some eyecatching accents, or team Olive Laque with Jasper Yellow for a calm and muted space.

THE NEW NEUTRAL

Pearl Effect

 

Always in style, neutrals are a versatile choice for your home. They add timeless elegance and can be layered with textures to create the ultimate cozy retreat.

But neutrals don’t need to be subtle – more people than ever are turning to neutral colours with a touch of shimmer. Artisan Pearl Effect in Urban Pearl or Mocha Pearl is a contemporary way to incorporate neutrals in your home.

For added neutral texture, our Artisan Stone Effect in both European Stone and Castaway Stone is proving popular to create a feature within a living space.

Teamed with Elegant Cream, Coachella and Dark Truffle in Chalky Emulsion for walls or Eggshell for woodwork, and with a sheepskin rug and wool throw, this look is reminiscent of a sophisticated take on scandi style.

SHADES OF PINK

Pink isn’t just for millennials. Its history is rooted in luxury, from Renaissance artists embracing it in their colour palette (such as Rose Pink and Dried Plaster) to the Victorian Camisole Pink, which conjures up images of silk and satin.  Pink has represented both masculinity and femininity over the ages and now can be seen as more gender neutral, as reflected by the recent trend for Rose Gold.

Pink can make a room feel either warm or cool, depending on the undertone. Alhambra Stone is a warm pink that echoes the setting sun on the sandstone walls of the Alhambra Palace, while Mackintosh Mauve has a delicate and floral muted tone that works well with cool greys.
