James Treble introduces a trio of this season’s new shades.
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?
