Bold Blues & Greens:

Saturated hues of green and blue can add a touch of vibrancy and playfulness in an otherwise muted space. Known for its tranquil and relaxing connotations, blue shades can create a relaxing environment and promote a serene atmosphere and clear mind.

Hues of green can bring a refreshing feel to any space, pale tones can be calming whereas more vivid shades are invigorating! Green is also known to reduce anxiety and be more restful on the eyes. By bringing a touch of green into your home, you can easily create a peaceful and calming space that will reduce the stresses of the everyday. These trending bold tones have been seen in textiles, paint and accessories this year, sometimes rather adventurous or a little more subtle.

A statement colour on smaller pieces such as table lamps is a simple but effective way of adding interest without the risk! Iconic designs such as Louis Poulsen PH5 or Flos Snoopy have expanded into bolder colour options rather than staying monochrome, these design brands have seen the need for richer hues to add a chic touch to their classic designs.

Neutral colour schemes have been seen in interior decor items along with natural materials, giving an earthy and wholesome quality to all kinds of interiors.
