Colourful trio of trends for 2019
We’ve launched three core colour trends which are set to shape interior design schemes for the first half of 2019 and beyond.
Our aim is to encourage everyone, whether specifying or painting, to have the confidence to experiment with colour, which is why we invest so much into developing fresh new colour trends each year. Several new colour schemes are devised each year to appeal as widely as possible to help decorators, DIYers and homeowners to find the perfect fit for every project.
The schemes are created by our own expert panel who devise a distinct identity for each trend as well as highlighting the hero shades and complementing tones within the three colour schemes, which this year have been identified as ‘Redefined’, ‘Movement’ and ‘Immersed’.
‘Redefined’ is based around a contemporary clash of chalky pinks and lilacs together with cement and charcoal greys to create a refined and sophisticated look. Concrete pavements and bright urban nightlife is the basis of the ‘Movement’ trend which pairs textured deep greys against a mix of vivid purple, teal or mustard along with bold geometric lines. While ‘Immersed’ takes its inspiration from the ocean with colours ranging from deep midnight blue to soft pastels and shimmering aqua marine shades.
Kathryn Lloyd, who is one of our colour specialists and part of our expert panel said: “Colour is at the heart of everything we do and we know how important it is to the success of any project, whatever the size or sector. We understand that colour is very personal which is why the trends we’ve created are deliberately fluid with plenty of scope for individual personality and style so you can really make it your own whether you choose to replicate a trend in its entirety or selectively use elements from one or more schemes.
“Looking to wider trends helps to keep a building’s décor looking fresh and new and drawing on the current season’s colour trends is the perfect way to add a different dimension to a project. We want to inspire our customers with the confidence to specify fresh new colour schemes for their projects and embrace the power of colour.”
