From trendy neutrals to therapeutic brights, here are the 4 colour  trends to add that much-needed punch to your interiors.

1. Edgy neutrals

Yes, neutrals are no longer hiding behind the shadows and are standing out loud and proud. There is a certain tonal effect which separates the usual suspects from the pack though. As attested by Dulux’s brand new Colour of The Year 2017 Denim Drift, it is an eye-catching tone of greyish-blue. The double-colour quality shows how a simple, restful shade can be versatile yet impactful at the same time.

2. Nature-inspired brights

With the release of Pantone’s Spring 2017 colour report, the fresh colours of the blooming season will move forward into 2017. Their designers have identified invigorating colours that offer a sweet escape into the open arms of nature. So, come on and bring the vast outdoors into your humble abode.

3. Tech tones

With smartphones and gadgets getting sleeker by the minute, their colours definitely play a huge role in the grand scheme of design. Rose Quartz, for instance, has been seen everywhere from the new iPhone 7’s rose gold shade to furniture, shoes and buildings. Cool blue is also a strong contender, with the metallic tone making an appearance on the latest gadgets and in Pantone’s Spring 2017 colours.

4. Healthful hues

Popping up in Pantone’s Spring Report 2017 are not just spring colours but wholesome hues inspired by healthy foods. One of which is kale, plucked literally from the popular leafy green, but also appearing in the world of architecture with vertical gardens and rooftop greenery. Whether or not you are into healthy eating, your interiors will get a robust shot of style with these chosen colours.
