Interior design colours for Spring 2016
This week we are taking our inspiration from Pantone, who each season provide their interpretation of must have colours. These colours are usually taken from the cat walk and then interpreted for interiors.
Here are some of our favourites from the palette.
Serenity blue – is calming and provides security. Our advice is to use this blue in the bedroom where calm and peace will help you wind down at night and ease you into sleep. This is also a great colour to mix with deep blue or white and will always give your room an air of elegance.
Fiesta on other hand is anything but calm. This strong vivid shade is perfect for the dining room of the lounge – any room where you want to interact with people and socialize. Fiesta would look good in large spaces with high ceilings and plenty of natural light – and should be used sparingly in small rooms.
And for those people who prefer something more neutral – iced coffee is the shade for you. This colour is really versatile and can be used across the home in any room. The shade is particularly adaptable and can either be the background for a neutral palette or combined with something brighter such as pink.
