Colour contrast in trend to be hot for 2019
If you glance at the visuals and various articles on the hottest colour trends for 2019, the overriding theme to jump out and splash you, is colour contrast. The predicted primary colour styling cues this year will be; tempting ‘Cravings’ and chic ‘Classico’. Opposite sides of the colour spectrum, yet equally and deliciously alluring. It seems that we are all craving some colour. ‘Cravings’ – tempting the eye with blush inducing pepper reds full of heat and with allusions to ‘fetish foods’, will harness the sultry pigments of forbidden fruits. Rich hues of the deepest purples, heavy pinks and moody blues are bound to be destined to make a ‘mouth watering’ impact on interior design over the coming months.
In a complete juxtaposition, the shades of ‘Classico’ skew elegantly with a nod to style fundamentals. The saturated hues of ‘Cravings’ are tempered by the warm neutrals of ‘ Classico’ – perfecting the ‘peace’ effect desired in today’s everyday home. Think quiet, natural pale fern greens, soft pinks and creamy cappuccino, at the heart.
Delving a little deeper into the future trend predictions, we discover that soft woodland hues of mushroom (beige, but not in a throwback to the 70’s way!) is proving to be a widely popular front runner as the ‘New Colour Staple’ Grey.
If you know Eskimo, you’ll know that we are besotted with beautiful finishes. So with a bright eye always on fresh ideas, and listening to our interior designers and home owners, you can expect us to introduce new colour finishes this year. In fact, Spring will see fine textured ‘ Classico’ selections, that pair perfectly with deep teals, stones and caviar blacks. Further additional ‘Cravings’ will appear amongst our deep orange, coral red and claret violet.
Colour is an incredibly personal decision as it sets the perfect emotive environment. Let’s immerse ourselves into all of the possibilities and go to our happy place.
