Colour trends you will love

While it seems like just yesterday we were celebrating the new year, trend forecasters and designers are already thinking well into 2017 ­– and there’s a big shake up of interior trends predicted.

Terracotta

Warm materials such as terracotta tiles will replace currently popular cool and white tones.

Unlike in the 80s, they aren’t used as border tiles. Instead they will have a natural matte finish and be used as feature walls in bathrooms or for cladding fireplaces

Cork

Not only is cork a stylish material idea that adds warmth and texture to spaces, it’s also ideal for absorbing noise in our increasingly large, open plan homes.

Dark Green

Dark shades of green will become the new must-have dark interior colour as we say goodbye to navy and midnight blues.

Dark green as a paint colour for rooms such as a bedroom creates a wintery Scandi backdrop for tan leathers, reindeer furs, brass lamps and natural linen.

Upholstered bedheads

Beds will change dramatically in 2017, with upholstered bed heads set to replace the timber bed frames currently dominating the market.

They’ve been a staple in luxury hotel bedrooms and celebrity homes for a while, but now we’re all falling head over heels for the bedhead trend.

Jewel Tones

While pastel shades of pink and blue are currently having their day in the sun, they will soon be overtaken by jewel tones inspired by metals, space, stars, clouds and the cosmos.
