Over the course of August I have been inspired for next year’s Interior Colour Trends. As you may, or may not, have seen on my Instagram feed I was on my honeymoon travelling around Italy. And what an adventure it was!
We explored many different areas of Italy, and it has been one of the most inspiring travel experiences I think I have ever had in my life.
Everything about Italy I fell in love with, but in particular I was drawn to all things colour and pattern. There were amazing inspirations in every place we visited, so you can imagine how many photographs I took!
Needless to say, since coming home I am full of creative ideas to take forward and begin designing for my Spring/Summer 2020 Collection. So watch this space.
In the meantime I wanted to share with you the inspirations I came across, and what I have been inspired by in a series of mini blogs.
First up are my colour inspirations. There was a wealth of stunning colours in Italy. Not only single use colours, but different colour combinations that I wouldn’t have necessarily thought about combining.
Interior Colour Trends
The one thing I loved walking around Italy was colour spotting. Colour was everywhere, and I found it was really uplifting to be around. I was also able to tune in to my colour psychology knowledge as well, to study how I can use the colour combinations I spotted, and make them work within the home, with my Spring/Summer Collection.
One colour combination that opened my eyes was the Italian love for yellow and blue. It’s a colour combination I never thought to use before, but my love for yellow especially has grown tremendously whilst being away. To the point I’m trying to figure out how I can get away with using it more within my own home décor.
Italy was also abundant for pastels, and there were some amazing colour combinations using a variety of these light hues, especially pastel (and/or) coral pink and mint.
Pink tones for the face of Italian architecture was striking, especially when set against natural surroundings, as we discovered in Amalfi. Using green and pink together, is a colour combination I have loved in the past, but it’s grown even more since seeing this scheme in a variety of tones.
With my own interior style, and within my interior product collections, I have always been a lover for pastel hues. But more recently adding a stronger/bolder colour into the mix is something I really want to carry forward.
So watch this space as my interior development evolves, and see which colour combinations from my Italian travels I take forward into my own home interior designs.
A little Top Tip for if you’re decorating (or thinking of) over the next coming year; look for colours that uplift your mood/mindset, and remind you of your holiday.
It’s always wonderful to be reminded of our happy times away, and colour is a brilliant way to express this. Keep an eye out for what colours you’re drawn to.
Take photos, make notes of what combinations you like, and notice how they make you feel!
Like my yellow and blue love, have you noticed what unexpected colour combinations you’re drawn to?
