Whether you’re looking for a confident, composed or comfortable design, let our certified team of colour consultants help you find a look that fits your personality and style. Here is an overview of this year’s must-try shades.

Bold Tints  

Dusky blues, spicy reds, vibrant greens—these colours are designed to capture your attention. Paint one wall or paint them all, the choice is yours! Great for homeowners who like to take risks with their interior design, these drama starters embody all that is fun about colour design. Choose a rich orange-red to make a statement in your living room or a bright sunshine yellow to liven your kitchen.

Subdued Tones

According to Pantone—the international authority on colour—quintessential neutrals and earthy tones like kale, taupe and hazelnut will be strong contenders in 2017. Solemn shades like mineral grey will continue to define those sleek, contemporary spaces we frequently see today, while calming blues and primrose yellows will serve as the perfect backdrop for your modern furnishings.

Sophisticated Hues

Perfect for introverts looking to take their first step into the realm of colour, muted pastels add a feminine and sophisticated touch to your interior decor, especially when paired with light, natural tones. These airy colours, featuring powdery blues, rosy pinks and minty greens, are perfect for making small spaces pop.

Pantone’s Colour of the Year

In addition to all of the colour trends outlined above, Greenery is another in vogue shade worth incorporating into your home. Pantone’s feature pick for 2017, this apple or grass-coloured green brings the lushness of the great outdoors in. Emblematic of vitality and new beginnings (think of spring’s first bloom), shades of green are increasingly being pulled to the forefront in trendsetting homes across the globe.

Any one of these liveable, fashion-forward hues can be introduced in either a small or big way, depending on your style preference.
