The Ultimate Spring 2018 Colour Palette

Following trends isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. I personally like to take them initially with a pinch of salt most seasons because good design should be timeless, and not something you have to change every 6-12 months to keep up with the fashion… There are however, a few trends that come around that I feel can add to an interior to help it stay timeless.

This season is one of them and I wanted to share with you my take on the colour trend and how you too can implement it in your home, no matter what your budget is.

Emerald green has been taking the interiors industry by storm recently. Statement rich green armchairs, whole rooms painted in green or accents through accessories – there’s no denying that this season’s colour trend is this bold colour paired with blush pink.

From the colour palette I have put together above, there are a few tones you can choose from in both colours. Sage / olive green is amongst the favourites of this season, and you could also choose a lighter shade of blush pink so no matter how confident or not so bold you feel there really is something for everyone.

 

By introducing emerald green to your living space with a bold sofa or statement armchair, you can then add accessories like cushions and throws that are of contrasting colour, in this case blush pink.

The most cost effective way of introducing colour to any interior is through soft furnishings as you can update these as and when you see fit.

Here are some of my favourite high street and high end accessories at the moment that fit the Spring 2018 trend broken down by colour and cost…

Another straight forward way to incorporate colour to your home is through artwork. Many people associate artwork as being expensive, however there are some amazing cost effective ways you can add colour and interest to your walls…

Instead of going all out with paintings, which can be extremely expensive, there are actually a number of companies that offer posters as a way to accessorise your walls. Starting at as little as £7 you can combine different colours and also mix and match them with quotes to create truly unique rooms that are personal to you.

Here are my top picks for this trend…

Desenio, Pink Wonder and Somewhere Pink Posters, from £11.95 each
Desenio, Palm Exposure and Palm Leaves Exposure Posters, from £6.95 each
Desenio, Botanical Garden posters, starting at £4.46 each
Desenio, Plant on Pink posters, starting at £5.21 each

My personal favourite accessory to any home has got to be indoor plants. They fit perfectly with this Spring 2018 colour palette making it easier to accessorise furniture with one colour – blush – and let the plants do all the talking.

Some great indoor plants to consider are:

Banana Plants

Citrus Tress (lemons etc)

Aloe Vera

Spider Plants

Succulents

Snake Plants

Until next time,
