New Year, New Design

With 2018 drawing to an end and new beginnings coming into focus, transforming the look of the space surrounding us might tie in with the notion of starting afresh. Inspired by conversations at the Painting & Decorating Show at the Ricoh Arena, we thought we would investigate the most talked about and trendiest colours for 2019. Here are the shades that are said to take lead in the New Year.

Spiced Honey by Dulux

If you are looking for a colour that works well with a range of other tones this shade is a good choice. Chosen by international design experts and architects this colour can be easily paired with pretty much any other colour.

The warm amber tone inspired by the colour of honey is absolutely on trend when it comes to creating a calming and cosy environment that brings nature indoors.

Nightwatch by Johnstone’s Paint

If you are looking for a colour that is a bit bolder but also classic and timeless, Night Watch is versatile enough to work well in both traditional and contemporary styles. It is certainly an option to consider. This colour aims to make us feel connected to nature which is in keeping with the design trends for 2019.

The darkened green is a great alternative to black and it can create almost a neutral back drop, evoking feelings of being surrounded by lush green foliage emanating the healing power of nature.

Inchyra Blue by Farrow & Ball

If you decide to go with something more along the lines of grey and blue this tone is definitely a good alternative. Inspired by Scottish skies the colour was first developed for Lord & Lady Inchyra at for their classic Georgian Inchyra House in Scotland. Depending on how the light hits the colour it could look either more grey or blue. Unsurprisingly, it has become one of Farrow & Ball’s most popular consumer choices.

It can be paired with darker colours and accessories for a more dramatic effect and neutral tones to create a softer and more muted ambiance.
