Winter Colour Trends 2017

Seasonality is the best opportunity to reconsider your space and give it a new

lease on life. Interior colour trends at the moment are certainly focused around

the ‘Greenery’ 2017 Pantone colour of the year, combined with natural blush

tones that were dominate last year. Trends do come and go however, so it is

important to use colour in a way that you love in order to make sure your

interiors don’t go out of fashion too quickly.

Here are a few colour combinations perfectly suited for any home this winter.


Typically seen using a cooler combination of colours with bold use of black and

white, a winter twist on the modern colour palette is seen to introduce warm

greys and a subtle splash of colour. Whilst maintaining a bright white, the space

will reflect lots of light and keep the space feeling fresh and open. Together with

the right tones of warm complementary finishes; this palette is equally striking

and tranquil with soft green undertones. These colours are perfect for a small

area needing a refresh this winter.

According to international colour trend forecasters, romance is making a

comeback. We can’t guarantee weekly flower and chocolate deliveries from

your special someone, however these colour combos may be a great start in

setting the mood. Highlighting the yellow and red undertones will create a warm

and cosy feeling in the space. Applying the neutral colour to majority of the walls

and then using the accent colours in soft furnishings or decorative pieces, will

ensure that the best balance of colour, heat and mood.

and bringing the old together with the new. All of these choices are impacting

how colours are interacting in our spaces, crating an organic collection of tones

that just seem to work. Taking notes from the textural tones in timbers and other

natural materials we are finding stunning palettes that will work in any space.
