Are you one to follow the pack or do you just like having your interiors up to date? If so, here is your guide to picking a colour to plaster all over your walls this year.
PANTONE COLOUR OF THE YEAR
Think blue jeans, blueberries and the sky at dusk. This colour will truly make an impact in your home with its bold presence. Although this shade of blue can make such a statement, it also brings about calmness and reassurance to the space. Because it is such a classic colour, we do not have to worry about it going out of style any time soon.
This colour palette is uncomplicated and simplistic, it is really just a 2020 take on neutrals. Try warm tones and texture to create a welcoming and happy space. Think raw materials, vintage items, time-worn textiles, and natural fibres. This is the safest colour choice to make as it is somewhat timeless and can suit most spaces. However, try not to make the space look too flat by overdoing it on neutral colours! Remember tone and texture can play a big role in transforming a space also!
The comeback colour palette takes vintages styles and combines them with contemporary pieces for an eclectic look. Use tonal shades of blue as a backdrop to create a calming and peaceful vibe. The bold blues alongside warm muted tones take us back to the ’80s, so have fun with your styling pieces.
We are starting to see green and nature-inspired tones more and more in interior design. This colour palette uses these zen tones to crush the city living and create a soothing calmness. Taking inspiration from Japanese styling cues, this trend combines black timber, handmade ceramics, and origami-like prints to connect colour, texture, and pattern.
If you are looking for something more comforting, this is the colour trend for you! Combining rich and warm tones of red and brown, ‘Indulge’ creates a warm and vivid sunset palette that sparks emotion in spaces designed for lingering.
INCORPORATING THIS INTO YOUR HOME
Using Classic Blue:
We will see the interior trend shift towards a more classic style with bold statement pieces. Introduce classic blue into your living room with a statement couch. This will provide a great centerpiece and will provide styling cues for the rest of the room.
If you are looking to keep it simple, try incorporating classic blue in smaller accent pieces. Try cushions, table runners, books, styling pieces or even artwork. Even just a pop of blue can help transform the room and liven up an open space.
If you are wanting to make more of a statement and don’t mind committing to the colour, you might opt for an accent wall or even go all out and paint a larger space. This will provide a rich look, however, it won’t be too hard to work with as the colour is quite versatile.
If you are looking to take this colour to the next level some great out-of-the-box ideas are:
- coloured vanities
- coloured kitchen cabinets
- coloured wallpapers
Using the Dulux Predictions:
With such a wide range of options in Dulux’s 2020 colour palette, your styling options are endless. However, due to the nature of the colours outlined and their impact, the colours tend to suit certain environments or geographical locations. For coastal and beachy locations, lean more toward the grounded or cultivate colour palettes.
Happy colour hunting for your home! We hope some of these ideas have helped you plan out your interior vision for 2020.
