Autumn colour trends

Saturday, October 15, 2016

I don’t live by colour or style trends and I am certainly a believer that interior decoration and design is a very personal thing and shouldn’t necessarily be dictated by a trend. I do however think that colour trends are a great thing to keep your eye on, to keep the creative eye inspired and to allow for experimentation. Pantone the one and only ‘colour authority’ have just released this year’s autumn 2016 colour trends and I have to say, I’m a fan! I’m writing this post in the hope that I can inspire a few people to spruce up their living space and have fun with colour even if you’re a bit of a colour commitment-phobe. 

Pantone’s autumn 2016 colour palette is inspired by tranquillity, strength and optimism and is totally led by the blue family. I have always gravitated towards blue as an easy colour to live, whether it’s a sapphire, cornflour, sky or steel blue. My grandma once told me that if you ever have to choose a colour that’s easy on the eye whether it’s to cover a cake or to decorate your home, go for green or blue, – you can’t go wrong – the sky is blue and the grass is green and those things will never change! Harmoniously grouped with these dusky blue tones, anchoring earth tones and exuberant pops of vibrant colours also appear throughout the collection. Their goal was to create a palette that represented consistency, stability, confidence and warmth. They’ve nailed it!
