Whether we want to admit or not, colours’ are giving meanings to our lives – just try to imagine your surroundings being colourless and you’ll realize that colours really make our lives and give beauty to it. This especially applies to our living spaces, which now, when modern era completely changed our lifestyle, should become precious oasis where we seek for peace, relaxation and inspiration. So, if you wondered what hues your living nook should embrace, this is the list of unavoidable colours you should stick to this year:
Blue was always known as more cold than warm colour, but paler nuances combined with other colours have the power to soften the entire space and provide immense dose of tranquillity. Light blue spectra is this year light desirable more than ever, especially because it allows creating transparent, but still modern and comfy appearance, so dare to combine it with cool grey nuances. If your home lacks relaxing spirit, paint your walls or floors into light blue with a hint of bolder grey.
Inspired by powerful Mediterranean ambient, Greek blue is instantly reviving and refreshing, and, as such, unavoidable for living rooms missing energy and richer look. This is the hue of oceans and clear skies and it’s great to be paired with contrasted vivid colours, especially with pink and grey.
Pastels, but frosty ones
Pastels are like eternal classic, so you can stay loyal to them as long as you opt for radiant nuances exuding a dose of frozen and neon shine. Frosty pastels are perfect for walls and prevailing interior pieces, but you should spice them with bright tones to avoid over – united look. So, pastels lovers, feel free to embrace Dandelion tea, secret blush (something like bleached purple), elusive blue and dreamscape grey, but vivid look fans can stick to mint green, light pink or aqua hues.
Earthy brown as perfect contrasting
Yes, 2015 colour trends are glorifying bright colours, but dark wood as well as muddy brown nuances are also welcome, most likely for spaces where bright elements should be more accentuated. Earth brown palette is best if applied on walls when furniture and decor come in dirty pink and white with eventual haze blue accents.
Pop of optimistic brights
Radiantly bright colours, such as bold and soft purple, natural orangey, plastic lime and sonic blue are the hits of the season, and great for adding energetic accents to conversation areas, especially dining room. However, use them carefully, best on shelving decor and some furniture parts, where you can reach impressively alluring ambient if pair them with neutral walls and floors.
Rustic, muddy appearance comes back to our homes, especially to those spirited with vintage motifs and old-fangled decor. A space warming up was never so easy, so rely on subtly and kind of dirty nuances, preferably olive green, dusty mint, aubergine and rusty tones. Combine them with grey, ivory, and if you’re brave enough, dramatize things with bright decor accessorize.
Explosion of colours will definitely reach its maximum this year, both in fashion and interiors, telling us once again that life without colours is empty and not exciting at all.
