Interior Design: Colours You'll Be Seeing Everywhere in Spring

5th April 2018

Spring is upon us - what is trending in the colour world?

The place where fashion meets interior design: colour palettes. We're always excited to find out what the designers, artists and fashionistas are wearing when the season gets warmer. There are two ways to get the low-down. You can either check out the catwalks or flick through home magazines. Either way, there's a huge crossover with what's on trend in both the interior and fashion world. Of course, we can always look to Pantone to set the tone each season. As it stands, ultraviolet is their colour of 2018. However, Pantone has also released a 'colour report' from 2018's New York Fashion Week. This suggests that not only do Pantone influence the fashion industry, but the reverse is also true. So, let's get onto the real reason you came to this blog post. What colours will be everywhere? How should you be injecting some on-trend shades into your home this Spring? Keep reading to find out.

Two contrasting palettes

You'll be surprised to know that this season, we're actually working with two very different colour palettes. Maybe the designers can't make up their minds, or maybe we're just celebrating more choice this year! Either way, we're not complaining. The contrast of these two palettes means that everyone is likely to find something they like. You are also more likely to find the perfect way to add detail to your interior with many more shades to choose from. What colours are we talking about? Well, according to a variety of sources including Pantone, Vogue and a number of home magazines, we can expect both bold and muted tones. The first colour palette contains vibrant yellow, lime and pink - it's almost tropical in nature. On the other hand, the second colour palette works with subtle pastels and neutral tones including lilac, beige and dusty blue. We are obsessed.

Bright and bold tones

To work the more daring of the two colour trends, we recommend going easy on the interiors. Perhaps you're a naturally bold person when it comes to decorating and so this trend will be right up your street. However, there is nothing worse than overly garish colours in the home so be careful how you apply this trend. Adding in cushions and throws in your favourites of the bright tones can easily bring any living room or bedroom to life. Houseplants are great accents alongside bright yellows and pinks, with the contrasting green leaves creating a beautiful tropical aesthetic.

Of course, if you're into your art, you can introduce this trend into the paintings and illustrations you choose to display in your home. This is your chance to really get creative! One of our top tips for finding unique (and relatively inexpensive) artwork is to browse Etsy for independent artists. Another way to incorporate brighter yellows, greens and pinks into your home is actually really simple and doesn't have to be permanent. Displaying fresh flowers in on-trend colours can make a massive impact on a room!

Muted pastel tones

The key words to consider here are as follows: dusky, dusty and natural. Think of your favourite pastel colour with the opacity turned down! We're loving lilac especially and it's a colour that has been forgotten for quite some time now. Combine this lilac with greys, sand tones and dusky pinks - you'll soon be well on your way to spring trend heaven. The great thing about this colour palette is that it is pretty subtle, so it's perfect for all year round. Although it might be trending at the moment, if you're into muted pastels then you're likely to enjoy them for the foreseeable future too!

For the best results, try injecting these colours into textures that suit their nature: soft and gentle. Bath towels, rugs, sofas, armchairs - all of these things can easily fit into a neutral interior in pastel shades like pale pink, grey and blue. Ultimately, keeping your home's interior natural and adding accessories to fit in with the season's trends is generally what we recommend.
