Blush Pink

Pink is making waves on the catwalks this year but it’s also going to feature heavily in our homes too, as the trend for light princess shades trickle through to interiors.

It’s almost like we’ll be brightening up the home with a sprinkling of fairy dust as little pockets of rose, peach and salmon merge with more daring shades of coral.

Pair your peachy tones with neutral accessories, but add in the odd touch of black to make it pop. These shades work well with texture too, so a velvet sofa in a rich rose shade will not look out dated, instead it’ll scream modern and edgy.

If you want to dabble in millennial pink, then start small with an accessory or two, but little touches will just be the beginning as we all fall in love with this romantic and breezy tone.

Royal Blue

2018 has put a spotlight on the royal family thanks to Prince Harry and Megan Markle, but you should also be casting royal blue shades across the home.

These shades are calm and soothing, which, when mixed with simplistic white, make for the ultimate in classic interior styling. Blue and white will lead the way as the new monochrome this season.

Bring an essence of contemporary romance and a refined coastal style to any room. You can create a tranquillity that fits perfectly with the easy-going summer months. Add a luxe-feel with metallic accessories or a dramatic chandelier.

Whether you add a single piece of furniture in this royal shade or integrate it fully in your design, it’s certain to breathe new life into any room – from the kitchen to the bedroom.

Sage Green

One of the most natural colours there is, we enjoy it everywhere we go and now this familiar colour is a firm favourite in the comforts of our homes. Even if it took you a while to get used to it, you can’t ignore it now, and most us will have jumped on board the greenery trend last year.

We’ve painted our walls with deep and seductive bottle and emerald shades but now it’s time for a fresher, herby take on the green trend to tempt our designer mind.

Soothing tones of sage, apple and grass are bringing a more relaxed atmosphere to your home. Developing the trend to bring the outside in, these colours will help you to create your very own meadow indoors.

Roll on to pastures new with this fresh and fun shade on furniture, cushions and mix with metallic accessories for a vintage touch. Green interiors are more playful, vibrant and invigorating than ever before!
