As the cooler weather sets in with shorter days it could be time to give your home a little lift in the colour department. As Taubmans brand ambassador and colour creative director Shaynna Blaze has the inside edge on the colours that will inspire us in coming months.
For Shaynna, this winter will see some of her favourite hues come to the fore – lots of teal, charcoals and blues to bring a colourful burst to interiors.
“Keeping an eye on new colour trends is one great way to spark inspiration and motivation to give your interiors a fresh, modern update,” she says. “The key to using trend colours is to have fun with them! Don’t be afraid to put a personal spin on a trend and embrace it in your home.
“For first timer painters, you should try using trend colours in a smaller or more personal space like an entryway, hallway or bedroom. For more experienced painters or daring decorators, you can make a real statement in your lounge or open plan living area with a trend colour.”
Here are Shaynna’s top tips for incorporating different colour trends into your home this winter.
Pastels are one of my favourite trends this year. The softness of the hues allows you to mix and match opposing colours on the one wall without creating an eyesore. They also work really well with white, blonde or light coloured timber furniture. To re-create this look, use painter’s tape to divide your wall and paint one side in a pale blue, like Taubmans Castaway Isle, and the other in a soft pink, like Taubmans Hedonist. For those wanting to create an edgier look, paint two thirds of your wall in one colour and the remaining third in the second colour rather than an even half and half. Complete the look with artworks predominately featuring brighter or darker shades of blues and pinks as they’ll really pop against the pastel wall.
