Five Colour Trends To Watch For Interior Design


Your choice of colour or hue can have more of an effect on a room than many of us realise, so what are the colour trends to watch for the rest of the year? 

While‌ ‌it’s‌ ‌no‌ ‌secret‌ ‌that‌ ‌colours‌ ‌and‌ ‌emotions‌ ‌are‌ ‌linked,‌ ‌it’s‌ ‌up‌ ‌to‌ ‌you‌ ‌as‌ ‌to‌ ‌what‌ ‌vibe‌ ‌your‌ ‌home‌ ‌radiates.‌ ‌Warm‌ ‌colours‌ ‌often‌ ‌evoke‌ ‌feelings‌ ‌of‌ ‌happiness,‌ ‌optimism‌ ‌and‌ ‌energy,‌ ‌but‌ ‌can‌ ‌also‌ ‌signal‌ ‌danger‌ ‌and‌ ‌even‌ ‌increase‌ ‌your‌ ‌appetite.‌ ‌On the other hand,‌ those that are regarded as ‌cool‌ ‌colours‌ ‌such as ‌blue,‌ ‌green‌ ‌and‌ ‌purple‌ ‌are‌ ‌considered‌ ‌to‌ ‌be‌ ‌calming‌ ‌and‌ ‌spark‌ ‌creativity,‌ ‌but‌ ‌can‌ ‌also‌ ‌signal‌ ‌melancholy‌ ‌if‌ ‌not‌ ‌used‌ ‌carefully.‌ ‌ ‌

To‌ further ‌complicate‌ matters,‌ ‌these‌ ‌colours‌ ‌also‌ ‌have‌ ‌to‌ ‌work‌ ‌in‌ ‌with‌ ‌the‌ ‌rest‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌tones‌ ‌and furnishings that are already in place in your home or commercial setting – so how on earth do you pick a palette, and which are predicted to be hits in design circles as we head into 2022?

Colour Trends Predicted To Be Winners In 2022

With spring just around the corner for many Australians, injecting a dash of colour into your home, office or workspace can feel quite tempting. Whether it’s via adding a new rug, changing up the colours of your cabinetry or even going full hog by painting your walls, these are the colour trends predicted to be a hit in the very near future. 

Orchid Flower – Described as having an intense, hyper-real and energising quality that will stand out in both real life and digital settings, orchid flower as a hue has similarities to a rich purple mixed with shades of fuchsia. If it’s a bit too bold for you, consider experimenting with a cushion or even a velvet armchair. 

Butter Cream – For those who are fans of a neutral colour palette, this fresh take on a traditional concept can swing either way when it comes to classic vs contemporary. While it almost feels like a cross between lemon and beige, if you get the lighting right, buttercream is a shade that can warm up any space even in the depths of winter. 

Atlantic Blue – While teal has very much had its moment in the spotlight, it would seem that we’re returning to more traditional shades of the blue colour spectrum. Grounded and reassuring, this grown up shade of blue brings to mind organic indigo dyes and the ocean. Try it on your walls and as a staple for furniture to add a layer of sophistication to your home. 

Olive Oil – Although the actual shades of real life olive oil can vary anywhere between bright yellows to deep greens, in this context, the shade is used to describe a colour that resembles both khaki and deep mustard green. With the latter being particular on trend, this hue looks fantastic with timber and white, and is known for its calming effect. 

Mango Sorbet – Whilst burnt yellows and mustards have been ‘in’ for a while now, mango sorbet is a mashup of bright orange and yellow, and can provide a much needed injection of energy and joy. It looks great with royal blue, and even works wonders when layered with other shades of the yellow colour palette. 

Like anything interior design, colour trends come and go – but the key is finding a happy medium between what’s popular now, and what will remain as a timeless and classic look for the future. If you’re not sure on which of the above colour trends could work in your home or commercial space, perhaps it’s time to speak to the professionals.
