Next season’s hottest colour trends revealed
Our colour experts have unveiled three new colour trends which are going to influence next season’s colour schemes.
Comprising consultants, specialists and designers, our panel of six colour experts use their combined experience and look at current and future global trends to determine key colour influences each year. Their aim in doing so is to inspire you and you and your customers to feel confident choosing the right shade to create statement colour schemes.
This year our colour experts have identified three core colour trends; ‘Saturated’, ‘Washed’ and ‘Midnight Garden’, each with its own distinctive look. The three trends are all centred around signature colours which are supported by accent tones and neutral shades to create a fresh look for any space.
‘Saturated’ is all about seeing the world as if through the lens of a camera and so the colours are intensified and infused together to create something that feels unreal with vivid greens, saturated reds, burnt oranges and an intense blue all featured.
Mirroring the natural beauty of weathered, eroded surfaces, faded fabrics, bleached linens and chalky, earthy tones, ‘Washed’ is a quiet palette of muted hues including soft faded lilacs, greens, blues and neutral cream.
The atmospheric ‘Midnight Garden’ trend is characterised by deep and moody tones paired with dusky highlights, taking inspiration from the evening shadows with inky blues, warming plums and tonal navy blues, softened with wispy lilacs and neutral greys for a cosy winter scheme.
Kathryn Lloyd Colour Specialist at Crown Paints said: “Colour is intrinsic to any interior design. Whether specifying a colour scheme for a large-scale project or working with individual clients, it’s useful to have a good understanding of the trends which are likely to shape the future of our homes and public spaces. This is why we put so much emphasis to bring together the latest colour influences.
“We get together annually to look at a diverse range of trends before distilling them down into core colour influences to provide something to suit all tastes. With the option to take as much or as little inspiration from each, there’s freedom to create a completely unique interior design with a nod to current trends.”
