Bring the warmth and comfort of one of the colours of the year, to your home – terracotta.

It’s last rise in popularity was during the 1990s and there was possibly a fair few terracotta walls on our screens in Changing Rooms but now its had a modern relaunch and using tones of it across a room from walls to furniture to small homewares can look incredibly effective.

Using the colour as a palette across an interior will bring warmth to the room.

home: trend [ 2019 paint colours ]

Every year we see different trending colours and popular shades in magazines and online. This last year has seen pink take over our lives, the introduction of the Millennial Pink has made way for a lot more softer shades, earthy tones and neutrals.

Of course vibrant red, teal and yellow has all made an appearance this last year inspiring those who want to be more adventureous.

Looking ahead to 2019 we have picked out four colours from four top paint brands, with what they believe will be colours of next year.

Dulux – Spiced honey [ top right ]

This shade is full of warmth and calmness, perfect for a living room or bedroom. The warm amber tone can be worked with other shades including plums, greys, and greens to create an appealing colour pallete.

Farrow & Ball – Sulking room pink [ bottom left ]

Pink shades are hanging around and we love them. With colour inspiration coming from raw plaster, putty, and stone this pink tone is a great addition to these popular colours. This versatile shade will work in any room and create a tranquil space.

Graham & Brown – Tori [ top left ]

Moving away from the pack, G&B have gone down a more intense and rich direction with this gorgeous teal shade. Very regal and and with a luxurious quality Tori would create a striking backdrop to any room. It will also compliment the must have earthy and nuetral shades that we have previously mentioned.

Crown – Redefined [ bottom right ]

Crown have created pallets to inspire us and Redefined is the one we have chosen. Taking inspiration from terrazzo – the multi coloured marble chips – form the shades. We see whites, clay, pale grey and pinks all working together. Use these colours in blocks for impact.

We love it when new paint colours are announced from Dulux, and for 2017 it’s Denim Drift. This lends itself perfectly to a new denim inspired trend for Autumn/ Winter 2016 running through to next year.

The great thing about this trend is that amongst the traditional washed denim colour you can bring in different tones to either bring drama or a subtle airy feel. Introduce blues through ceramics and accessories to hint at this trend. Marble and splattered paint effects look great in blue and can add interested to a shelf or table top.

Use soft furnishings in accent shades of blue against neutral tones of white, cream and grey. [ Try and avoid stripes as not to end up with a nautical feel ]

Bring drama to a room with a large piece of furniture in a deep blue, or paint a feature wall in a dark tone and add black, grey accessories like shelving and framed prints.
