PANTONE COLOUR OF THE YEAR 2019
It is a move forward for the pastel pinks that have been everywhere this year. Mixed
with eastern influences from Morocco and teamed with coastal blues and greens, this
colour has the potential to liven up the dullest of spaces. Think tiled flooring, hand-dyed linens, layers of patterns, water colour prints all mixed together to give a fresh and elegant take on the pink trend.
RELAXED NORDIC STYLE
This style embraces the best of Swedish hygge. Walls in shades of white contrasted by rough wood surfaces and sheepskin rugs.
AT ONE WITH NATURE
Sustainability is becoming a global priority. Ethically sourced products, natural fabric and textile designs that mimic natural materials are a big trend for 2019.
This Dulux colour of the year is Nightwatch Green. A strong colour that creates a dramatic effect when teamed with blossoming florals and bright oranges. This colour works with the botanical theme that has been really popular this year.
Internet searches for velvet has increased 400% in the past 6 months as people are looking for luxurious investments in bold contrasting colour fabrics.
INSPIRED BY 70’S RETRO
With the current trend for velvet and bold geometric patterns, and so many burnt oranges and yellows at the forefront of the consumer trends, there is definitely a nod towards the 70’s era. Think warm colour palettes, funky textures and abstract silhouettes.
BLACK & WHITE
A truly timeless design trend, the visual contrast of black and white provides a sense of balance and boldness. Look out for dalmatian print which will be everywhere next year.
