Meet the beaut new colours of spring.

WE ALL HAVE OUR favourite colours but here are some spring trends to add to the mix! “Muddy” greens, red­dish or­anges and fuch­sia are work­ing their way into throws, cush­ions, din­ner­ware, vases and fab­rics – all sim­ple ways to brighten any space.

“MUDDY” GREENS Green is still big and the tones you’ll be­gin to see in the shops will add a calm vibe to any colour scheme. This relaxing earth­i­ness makes them per­fect as fea­ture wall colours and they will pop nicely against white wood­work. They also look good with most tim­bers, and be­cause we’re talk­ing deeper shades, they work well with a mul­ti­tude of ac­cent colours. So they should be easy to add to your cur­rent colour scheme.

RICH OR­ANGE This colour adds vi­brancy with­out dom­i­nat­ing a space be­cause it’s toned down by the red­dish base. It’s a great, fresh colour for out­door set­tings: think throws and Turk­ish tow­els. It also looks fan­tas­tic against luscious green plants, both in­doors and out.

FUCH­SIA This wakes up any space, even in small doses.

Look for fuch­sia in flow­ers, cush­ions and pieces such as din­ner­ware and place­mats if you want to add a touch of drama. It’s great for out­door soft fur­nish­ings, too. Pink front door, any­one?
