The year that’s fast approaching is going to be dramatic and bold. In the world of colour, that is. In fact, the bolder the better. There is no place for neutrals in 2018. Here are a few insights from the colour masters to help you decide how your home can change to welcome the colours of the new year.
Think bold, bright, strong colours. Make a statement with vibrant tones that have a playful feel. Colours like canary yellow, lime green, citrus orange, peacock blue and fuchsia pink.
The simple additions of geometrical shapes and diagonal lines can really take a bright feature wall up a notch. Stay within one colour family so you don’t overwhelm the room.
Also, back in 2018 is black and grey. Remember, black comes in a myriad of tones, from inky to indigo-infused to charcoal grey. Deep and dramatic, these will add intensity to your interiors like no other.
And finally, subtle retro, nostalgic, moody colours such as burnt rose, lilac, mauve and rich, opulent purple and green will also find a place in 2018. Although soft in colour they are strong in tone and can create a very revitalising look.
Happy 2018! And, Happy Painting!
