How To : Use Trend Colours in Your Interiors

We always look at the fashion trend reports and think about how to incorporate them into our designs to keep our work current. But you may not want to follow every trend, especially in big investment pieces that may then date easily. But there are ways to incorporate them without spending lots of money updating a whole room.

We'll show you examples of how to do this using Pantone's Fashion Color Report Fall 2015 -

an umbrella of accord that weaves earthy neutrals with a range of bold color statements and patterns to reflect a landscape of hope, fun, fantasy and all things natural.


Dried Herb is a very popular colour for kitchen cabinets at the moment. And the great thing about painted cupboards is that you can paint them again when you get bored. This is also a great shade for walls or, if you're not that daring, then accessorise with bounteous cushions.


Here are two beautiful examples of Desert Sage - proving it works equally well in traditional and rustic settings. It's a very versatile colour for walls.


Stormy Weather is easy - dark greys have been around within the interiors world for a while. But a fresh way to use it is for curtains, either in sheer or heavy linen.


We love the warmth of Oak Buff and it's the perfect autumnal colour. It's quite difficult to replicate in interiors though, not quite a dark mustard nor a burnt orange, but these two interiors show how a combination of similarly-toned colours can produce an overall colour effect.


As Pantone's colour of the year for 2015, Marsala, a rich wine-red, has been featured before on many blogs and articles so we won't dwell on it too much. It looks great here, used on these lovely chairs.


Who doesn't love a rich turquoise like Biscay Bay? Used dramatically it's a real show-stopper, especially when contrasted with copper tones as shown here.


Reflecting Pond is not far from Stormy Weather but has more blue tones, like a warm navy blue. Looks fabulous on large pieces of furniture and kitchen cupboards. Very of-the-moment.


We love Cadmium Orange, a rich peachy-orange with a touch of watermelon. Looks fantastic used as accents in the home to add beautiful flashes of colour.


Continuing the warm story, but with a softer more feminine vibe, this is Cashmere Rose.


Following on nicely from Cashmere Rose and a strong end to our post, is Amethyst Orchid. Use it dark or use it light, it holds its own as a strong addition to an interior scheme.
