Rich earth colours make a come­back

Pilbara News - - Property - Cy Clay­ton

From rich reds to deep greens, the key colour trends for sum­mer 2016-17 are all about big, bold shades.

Ac­cord­ing to Du­lux, the hot hues for the com­ing sea­son also have a dis­tinctly global flavour, with ex­otic colours that take their cues from tribal and South Amer­i­can in­flu­ences.

“The sum­mer pal­ette for 2017 has a very dif­fer­ent feel when com­pared with last year’s cool, pas­tel hues,” Du­lux colour ex­pert An­drea Lu­cena-Orr said.

“This sea­son’s colours evoke a cosy and invit­ing en­vi­ron­ment in the home. Rich colours add a dra­matic at­mos­phere, while deeper tones cre­ate a sense of tran­quil­lity, ideal for cre­at­ing a place to re­lax.”

The lat­est fore­cast from Haymes Paint also favours rich, earthy hues. In­spired by the colours found in the lay­ers of the earth, the Strata pal­ette fea­tures tans and browns paired with lush deep greens, while Stark Beauty also em­pha­sises bold shades of green, paired with a fresh, min­i­mal­ist range of whites.

Pitch Dark plays on the con­cept of dark spa­ces, rather than light, be­ing in­her­ently re­lax­ing, with strong shades such as black and char­coal com­bined with moody nudes, rich reds and deep blues.

The pal­ettes are part of the new­est vol­ume in the Haymes Colour Li­brary trends tool.

“Vol­ume eight cov­ers the di­verse col­lec­tion of colour and de­sign di­rec­tions we see in­flu­enc­ing the mar­ket glob­ally,” Haymes’ Wendy Ren­nie said.

“We’ve pre­sented this vol­ume in three dis­tinct colour sto­ries that we be­lieve will work well across in­te­ri­ors, par­tic­u­larly in Aus­tralia.”
