Last year was all about Millennial Pink and this year Living Coral is Pantone’s colour for 2019, which to quote their brochure “symbolizes our innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits”. Meanwhile interior designers are definitely feeling the love for deeper more unusual tones too, think merlot and damson and heading a bit more orange in tone to 70’s influenced shades like rust.
One of the key ways to work with colour right now is layering; building up a palette of pieces in a variety of tones around the same colour to create a fresh look. So, how to make to make this trend work for you at home?
We suggest arranging your cushions in a colour family with three tones together; aubergine, old rose and nude for example. Don't forget to mix shapes and textures like lustrous velvet with matt wool herringbone. Now all you have to do is plump them and settle down in their rosy glow. We especially love Oyoy’s Lia cushion in organic cotton velvet as it has a different tonal colour on each side, two cushions for the price of one!
You might not be ready to swap out your sofa yet but think about adding a peach rug or a red pouf to your living room; they work well with greys and soft neutrals as well as jewel tones.
Try styling up your side board or dining table with these vases and glasses. The Marain vase from House Doctor is metal and has a super matt finish which contrasts beautifully with the cute little Bloomingville wood vase in soft blush and birch wood. Add the pop of some greenery or your favourite white or pink flowers with one stem or two different sizes and textures and you’re good to go!
