A new year brings with it fresh colours to adorn our walls and embellish our furniture. Out go the earthy tones of last year and in their place a mix of warming bolds and calming pastels. See our take on the hottest inspirational trends of the season...

Think the bold landscape of Santorini, whether it’s a block colour or part of an intricate pattern, this heavy blue can be seen on a multitude of finishes this season.

Refusing to give up their trend throne; Metallics are here to stay, adding a touch of glamour to any interior. We found a great article by theROOMedit on how to mix fiery copper with Rainforest Green for a tropical theme.

We could not talk about colours without mentioning Pantone’s Colour of the year and this year we have been spoilt with not one but two colours;

"Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace"
