Decor 10 Colour Trends for 2018 - ADzif

 

Colours can have an incredible effect on our state of mind. Certain colours awake the senses and stimulate us, while others have a calming effect. In interior decoration, the right colour choice makes for a successful décor. It all depends on the atmosphere you want to create for you and your family.

 When it comes to paint, the colour palette is endless. If you’re looking to renew the look of your interior, we’ve got plenty of inspiration for you. Here are 10 colours trends for 2018!

 

  1. The Iron Throne vs Cast Iron Black

What does Cast Iron Black have in common with the famous television series, Game of Thrones? Well, this specific colour and the Iron Throne both symbolize power. Black is associated with power, elegance and mystery. It’s also a colour that symbolizes prestige.

In interior decoration, black can be used to create a provocative and modern accent wall. This will not only add depth to the room, but a luxurious feel as well. Try out a black accent wall in the dining room, staircase or even in your bedroom. Need to refresh your guest bathroom? Paint all walls in Cast Iron Black and let your silver or gold hardware shine.

 

  1. Smooth & Elegant French Vanilla

If you want to create a soft and elegant feel in your room, French Vanilla is an excellent option. This colour, with its cream base and touch of yellow, is associated with purity and innocence. It’s also very appeasing, and even more so than a cold white.

Since it’s a pale colour, French Vanilla is ideal to widen a room. Choose this tone for the living room or dining room. If you’re looking for the perfect colour for your nursery, this cream colour will undoubtedly have a calming effect on your baby.

 

  1. Raise the Barre with Ballerina Pink

Nowadays, pink is so much more than a colour for little girls and ballerinas. Ballerina Pink is increasingly being used in interior design, from furniture to accessories and textiles.

We love this colour because it’s so soft and appeasing. Super comforting, it has an undeniable effect on our subconscious. Want to revamp the look of your living room? If the colour of your furniture is neutral (grey or cream sofa, natural wood or light colour coffee table), we suggest you try is magnificent colour. You won’t regret it!

 

  1. Dream of the Mediterranean with Monaco Blue

One of our favourite colour trends for 2018 is Monaco Blue. Incredibly rich, this deep blue hue is known to increase concentration and even improve sleep. This colour is also associated with efficiency – so if you want to take advantage of its powers, use it in your home office or in your living room.

Monaco Blue is also luxurious, therefore don’t be afraid to style it with gold accessories and ultra-soft textiles. One might think that dark colours can make a room look smaller, but that’s not entirely true. A colour such as this one can really anchor a room and give an illusion of grandeur, so try it without delay!

Infuse some joy and sun in your room with Sun Dried Orange. This colour reminds us of the South of Spain and is ideal for common areas. Use it in the living room or in the dining room for an incredibly welcoming and joyous effect.

Sun Dried Orange goes well with natural materials (think wood, leather, linen and cotton) as well as global décor items. If you have Moroccan poufs, Turkish rugs or decorative African bowls, this colour is for you.

If stress is all too important in your life and you need to relax, consider Aqua Mint. Associated with serenity, peace and emotional stability, this colour will help you sleep better and even to mediate.

It goes without saying that this is an excellent choice for the bedroom. Not only will this colour help you relax, it will brighten your room as well. Style Aqua Mint with white, cream and golden accessories and textiles for breathtaking results.

Optimism, joy and positive energy… yellow is a colour you should definitely try. According to the Chinese Feng Shui principle, Lemon Yellow is one of the best colours to use in your kitchen due to its stimulating properties and its ability to increase appetite. Useful, isn’t it?

Lemon Yellow looks great in kitchens and common areas such as the dining room and living room. If you want to brighten up a room and infuse sunny vibes at the same time, we suggest you take the plunge with this colour.

 

  1. Passion-filled Etruscan Red

Etruscan Red is an intense red with a light copper touch. Stimulating, this colour energizes and invokes life. In terms of interior décor, we suggest you paint your dining room walls in this colour to stimulate appetite and conversations. You can also use it in your kids’ playroom for its energy-liberating effect.

It also goes without saying this red is the symbol of passion. Paint an accent wall in your bedroom with Etruscan Red to create a romantic atmosphere filled with love and passion. However, we do not recommend you paint your children’s walls in this colour since it could impair their sleep.

 

  1. Go Against the Norm with Ultra Violet

Ultra Violet was designated as PANTONE®’s colour of the year. This violet with blue undertones is rich, complex and contemplative. Often associated with countercultures and anticonformism, this colour stimulates creativity and mindfulness.

How does one integrate unconventional colour into interior décor? If you’re not ready to paint your walls in Ultra Violet, we suggest adding subtle touches with accessories and textiles. A rug in the living room, a velvet cushion, a table lamp or even new bed linen can easily refresh the look of a room.

If, however, you want to make the jump, we suggest painting an accent wall in your living room or reading corner. The colour will add a luxurious touch to your décor, all the while stimulating contemplation and thought.

 

  1. Cocoon Away with White Clay

Are you a cocooning or hygge (the Swedish principle of comfort) enthusiast? Create a comforting and relaxing space with White Clay. This colour reminds us of organic matter and the earth. A mix between white, beige and pale grey, White Clay is ideal for the living room and bedroom.

Whether you have a more traditional or modern décor, you won’t have difficulty styling this colour with your furniture and accessories. This neutral colour will widen a room with ease and provide a certain warmth as well.
