A new year brings with it the ideal opportunity to change up your interior. And where it’s always wise to decorate according to your taste, with colours that bring you happiness, staying ahead of the latest trends in interior design can give you inspiration to try something you’d never have thought of.
Here’s some of Apollo Blinds director, Mike Stephen’s top picks of the hottest colours for homes this year.
- Ink Blue and Clay
Pastel blue makes way for an inkier saturation as 2017 progresses, yet the natural themes we’ve seen are still prevalent.
“Combining blue with terracotta as well as hand-made, organic and crafted materials lends a relaxed Mediterranean vibe to interiors. Introduce hand-woven fabrics, leather features, living ornaments, carved wood, handmade clay pots, earthenware and terracotta elements for a laid-back bohemian scheme.”
“This look celebrates sustainable living, making energy saving Duette® blinds by Apollo Blinds the ideal window dressing to complete the look.”
- Sunrise and Seascape Pastels
“Carrying through more natural themes, a calming palette of pastels inspired by sunrise and the ocean will see peach, lavender, sky blues, aqua-marine and blush pink mixed or combined with deeper shades.”
- Deep Purple
As we progress into autumn winter mysterious shades of deep purple will bring warmth and depth to interiors. Metallic silver highlights or jewel tones will lift the scheme, keeping it dark and decadent rather than gloomy and overcast.
Paint and colour specialist, Benjamin Moore selected a deep amethyst shade as its colour of the year, which can be introduced at windows with aluminium Venetian blinds in a rich shade of purple by Apollo Blinds.
