A New Year and a fresh start is upon us, and for many people a fresh start calls for fresh walls. Home renovations and general house improvements are very popular in January, as homeowners look to give certain rooms an update for a brand new year. It’s also a good idea to keep occupied with a project so the January blues don’t have a chance to kick in.
Are you thinking of decorating in the New Year? Stay current with these top interior design colour trends for 2016.
Rose Quartz and Serenity
Pastels are set to stay on trend throughout 2016, as Pantone’s colour of the year blends two light shades. Pantone has this year offered a softer take on colour, and for the first time ever has blended two shades together; a rose light pink tone and a tranquil blue. These can be used on walls throughout the home, alone or together for a serene sanctuary.
Dulux has chosen to stick to a metallic theme this year by opting for the Cherished Gold shade. It follows on from 2015’s shade of the year which was Copper Blush, as homeowners continue to embrace the warmth of metallic in their décor. Warm and earthy, the distinctive shade looks great on feature walls and even panelled walls or floorboards. It goes well with white and black, depending on the look you are trying to create. Cherished Gold is also a versatile choice, suiting modern or period homes.
White is continuing its popularity into the New Year as a fresh and subtle choice. The complexity of white can be layered with paint, furniture, flooring, furnishings and decorative pieces. It’s also a great choice for brightening up the home during the long dark days of winter.
Calming colours will be trending for the whole of 2016, with lilac being one of the most fashionable colours to paint your wall. The soft tone works great in kitchens, living rooms, hallways and bedrooms and can help to make a space feel light and airy.
