Colour Musings of 2019

Every year colour trends change but what do they really mean and how can you incorporate them into your home? It’s important to look at colour as a whole and discover where it stands in today’s spectrum.

Rumour has it that 2019 is all about bringing an edgier palette into the home. Dark colours are a statement of ‘sophistication’, whilst bold vibrant tones are considered ‘brave’ and ‘spirited’. The M&L Palette has a diverse collection of 120 colours that will fit with any space, theme or trend. If this is the year you’re planning a renovation project or even just want to introduce a fresh coat of paint, then our new colour card is a must have for inspiring your designs – order one here.

Top Colour Trends for 2019

  1. Once a colour that was associated with bathroom suites and has previously ignited fear in the most discerning decorators. Green has come into a world of its own – with so many shades why not create fresh vibes of health with Sea Green and Sage, or bring accent pieces to life with Passiflora.
  2. Soft Pastels inspire a sense of wellness and relaxation; create a peaceful haven in your home office or bedroom with muted and soothing colours such as Shell or Swedish Blue. Enhance with textured soft furnishings.
  3. Be brave! Bold colours are commonly used for feature walls and family rooms – It’s easy to see why with Pantone’s colour of the year as ‘Living Coral’. Infuse your life with spirited colours such as Cinnabar and Lulu, or be unique with Gladio and Wimpole Poppies.
  4. Echoing sophistication and elegance, dark colours are predicted to be the interior favourite for this year. Extremely versatile, darker tones can be used as subtle additions to a living room or as part of a larger dramatic design. Green Black or Juniper Green sit well when paired with gold accents and crisp, bright whites.
