As we enter 2016, and new projects come into our design studio, we take the opportunity to explore the colour trends that may influence us in interior design this year.
Pantone Colour of the Year 2016
Pantone have, for the first time ever, released two shades for the year of 2016; ‘Rose Quartz’, a soft, warm pink hue and ‘Serenity’, a tranquil cooler blue. Together the colours have been selected to work in harmony in response to consumers who are seeking a sense of calm and well-being within their stressful lives.
It can be expected that in the coming months, ‘Rose Quartz’ and ‘Serenity’ will be seen in many interiors. The two colours complement each other well, making it easy to incorporate them into wall finishes, furniture, furnishings and accessories.
Dulux Colour Forecast 2016
Closer to home the Dulux Colour Forecast 2016 has been released.
Entitled ‘Design Age’ the range of colours reflects the past, the future and the unknown. As consumers strive to personalise their individual space; designers, creators and makers strive to meet this demand with the customisation and personalisation offered by bespoke design. We’re experiencing a time where handcrafted overshadows mass produced. The new range of Dulux colours, targets our desire for unique and adds a sense of luxury and distinction to our lives. The range of colours have been categorised into four trends; ‘Bio Fragility’, ‘Infinite Worlds’, ‘Retro Remix’ and ‘Future Past’.
Bio Fragility sees subtle hues inspired by natural and living matter; showcasing soft and muted flesh, moss and stone tones.
Infinite Worlds shows a mix of darker green and blue tones contrasted with vibrant reds, pinks and coral tones, as well as accents of glowing metallic reminiscent of space.
Retro Remix incorporates an experimentation of colour combinations influenced by the lighter pinkish tones of 1960s & 70s with contrasting acid bright colours and faded browns & olive greens.
The final trend takes influences from the Steampunk era as well as modern design to showcase decadent and quite traditional hues, such as deep forest greens and rich browns with injections of mustards, pinks and purples. These hues form Future Past.
Inspired yet? We are and you'll definitely be seeing some of these trends in our upcoming projects.
