Colour trend palettes from leading brands are often released to celebrate a New Year. Since 1915 Australian paint brand, Wattyl, has been influencing the colours in our homes.
Paint is one of the easiest decor features to change to give a completely different aesthetic. So the Wattyl 2018 colour trend palettes will help you stylishly paint an entire room, or a whole house, without agonising over colour combinations.
Increasingly, our homes are our sanctuaries. As an Interior Designer, I am often told by clients that they have trouble understanding colour. They often default to white or beige. Now, white and beige have their place, for sure, but colour combinations applied expertly will add vibrancy and liveability to any home.
Colour enables home owners to express their personality and paint is a very affordable option. Unlike some forecasts, Wattyl has based their colour trend palettes on extensive research into our lifestyles and multiple factors affecting our sense of place and wellbeing.
The Wattyl research indicates that our homes are more of a retreat from busy lives than ever before. FOMO (fear of missing out) has been replaced by JPMO (joy of missing out).
So with this research in mind, the 2018 colour trend palettes from Wattyl reflect the biggest influences in our daily lives. These influences are in four categories that can affordably be utilised in your home NOW!
Colour Trend Palettes 2018 – Nowstalgia
Gorgeous mid-century modern Palm Springs (my fave) with a touch of luxe. Nowstalgia represents a time when life was simpler and optimism ruled.
Colour Trend Palettes 2018 – Grounded
Earthy with botanicals and minerals setting the scene. When we are grounded it reflects a desire to gain meaning and purpose making value-based lifestyle decisions that help us regain a connection to the environment.
Colour Trend Palettes 2018 – Mood Monitor
Stimulating and light-filled, the Mood Monitor represents an inner strength of mind and body with a focus on breathing in a fast-paced world.
Colour Trend Palettes 2018 – The Slow Down
Soft, quiet and contemplative, when we Slow Down we don’t fear missing out anymore. This JOMO (joy of missing out) means our home really is our castle and our bust lives can be better managed in harmony.
