Crave-worthy colour palettes
Colour experts Pantone are always looking ahead and selected two key colour palettes specifically for housewares and interior design for 2019. Returning to colours that engage and stimulate beyond the surface, work the “Cravings” palette into your home this Autumn, taking inspiration from the plate. Creating a space that is tempting for the eye designing a warm and memorable sensory experience. Using neutral walls and flooring work in accessories and eclectic colour block furnishings in shades of spicy reds, sweet flamingo orange, and jewel greens. Curtains do not just need to be for the window only but can work as a great way to inject colour into a space and as a wall decoration or artwork frame.
Continuing on from last season, this trend is a celebration of globally inspired patterns and textures. Taking your home on a journey, rich earthy pigments are thrown together offering a fusion of rugged textures with subtle details of woven finishes, tassels and poms infused into everything from the blind trims, to cushions and throws. To achieve the this look, work with powdered clays and mustard touches. Celebrating the beauty of imperfect finishes and effortlessly stylish this trend is an easy one to recreate with accessories alone. Offering a relaxed and homely feel.
