Colour Trends: Part Three
Following on from Part One and Two, we look at two more colour palettes taking 2017 by storm
It is important to remember that the latest fashion colours don’t mean you have to completely reinvent your home every year or two. Think of them as fresh inspiration that add to your options. Just as you might add a new jacket or shoes in the latest colours to complement your wardrobe, you can add a touch of new fashion colour to freshen up your home.
Palette five: SHARE
The concept of ownership is changing – we don’t have to own everything we use. We can borrow, share, donate and barter. Reinventing the way we see possessions and space is a key theme where anything can become multi-purposed and multi-used. We change and evolve as we age, and the things we own take on a new look and a new purpose. Just as our families grow, and then disperse as children leave the nest, the things we own have journeys of their own as they change hands.
Palette six: BLEND
Neutrals are dusky and earthy too, with grey and beige co-mingling, and blackened whites, such as Resene Black White, popular as a backdrop. If you love the feel of grey, but need a touch more colour, look to the dusted tones of grey blended with blue for a timeless look that can be easily accessorised to suit each season.
Our love of greyed browns has been put to one side as truer greys emerge, from silvery shades to slate-like charcoals – paving the way for browns to become earthier and richer, and for bronzed hues to emerge.
