When it comes to colour trends, being braver with your choices is no longer just limited to paint, and exciting bathroom tiles are just as likely to be what you’re craving in your Kent home. So, if you’re planning a Pinterest-worthy, Instagram-famous bathroom makeover in the next month, what shade should you go for?
Just a little while ago, Dulux announced that its colour of the year for 2019 was a orangey-brown hue called Spiced Honey, pinned on the idea that we’re looking for a little more comfort in our homes with all the scary stuff that’s going on outside of them. However, now Pantone, the institute of colour experts, have released a shortlist of their defining colours for the year too.
Usually, at the end of the year, Pantone release the one colour that will be big news for the next year, but this little shortlist gives an idea of what could possibly come, and is especially suited to the spring season. While it may have its heart in fashion, interiors is never far behind, and it looks like next year colours are really warming up.
Following Dulux’s lead, warming oranges and reds dominate this list, and Pantone say that one big trend is that colours are becoming less seasonal as the world comes to have a more global outlook. Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, says that there are less rules when it comes to bring certain colours into your life throughout the year: “There’s no sense of “Oh, I can’t wear orange, because that’s an autumnal colour”. We don’t traditionally think of red as a spring colour, for example,” she said, according to .
So this warm tones of taupe, pink, orange, red, green and yellow and you can’t go far wrong.
