Ready to get creative with colour? Here are this year’s most-wanted shades…

 

 

Green

With green taking two of Pantone’s Top 10 Colours coveted spots (including the coveted number 1 place) this year, this is a clear indication that this is set to be THE most-wanted colour for home interiors.

From laid back boho and beach looks to shades that signify an affinity with nature, the environment and an increasing precedence on sustainability – this eclectic and adaptable colour adds plenty of fresh, vibrant flair to open plan kitchens, bathrooms, conservatories, home offices and hallways.

Blue

Evolving from last year’s coveted shades of grey colour trend, the new blue tones are stylish, sophisticated and incredibly adaptable. Hailed as the “everyday” colour by paint giants, Dulux, the new shades of blue dip their toes into both the grey and green spectrums, which makes this colour trend easy to work in most rooms and settings.

Taupe

Once again inspired heavily by nature, taupe – and its varying shades – remains a popular choice for adding a minimalist yet luxurious feel to the home. From soft, pale neutrals to warmer shades of this colour spectrum, these tones make a big impact when used in the form of natural stone-effect tiles for walls and floors. This highly workable shade will add a calm and contemporary feel to any room in the home, but works phenomenally well in bathrooms, wetrooms, kitchens and conservatories.

Yellow

Highlighting the more fresh and playful side of nature, the new shades of yellow will allow you to create pockets of creativity among otherwise understated spaces. Warm, welcoming and vibrant, the many shades work well as a mosaic as part of a feature wall, wetwall, splashback or border when paired with complementary larger sized tiles.
