Colourphobia is on the way out! We said this for the beginning of summer and it’s here to stay; the only difference being is the tones become more saturated as the days shorten and the weather starts its inevitable turn.
Terracotta is the new kid on the block and can be seen as the link between the inside and out. It’s soft, warm, stony browns work beautifully with the navy’s and indigo’s that are coming through this winter. I’m not a great taupe or beige fan, but I have to say it is a super combination when you put these three together.
Copper is also showcasing its self this year, we have already seen a big surge of rose gold and brass metal, but copper with its red and orange tones is playing right into the earthy notes of this year’s winter palette. That’s not to say brass is gone, it’s just having to share the lime light and is competing well with a more muted, antiqued variation of what we’ve been seeing.
Forest green and saturated yellows are part of this year’s palette, just be mindful to use these as accents. Start small with colour if you are experimenting, and see how you visually react to it as it’s easier to change out a cushion that repaint every wall!
Lilac grey is a beautiful option for those who want that sophisticated hint of urban cool, but still require warmth and depth in the colour palette. The addition of lilac makes greys warmer, it’s subtle enough for you not to tire of it easily and is a great neutral for all seasons.
