RESENE COLOUR EX­PERT BROOKE CALVERT TALKS ABOUT SUM­MER STYLE AND THE YEAR AHEAD.

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - HOME IDEAS -

Do you have an on-trend colour forecast for 2019? Will it be the year mil­len­nial pink moves over and in­tro­duces another star colour…? Per­son­ally, I’m a huge fan and hope it lives on! Here are a few thoughts on what we can ex­pect to see through 2019. Shades of pink will lighten or have tones of peach as op­posed to the pre­vi­ous dusky pink. Ex­pect to see deep, moody tones – inky blues, earthen greys, rich greens. Also soft le­mon yel­low. Bur­nished reds will be­come a ver­sa­tile colour to com­ple­ment and bal­ance var­i­ous shades. Bright marine blues for those want­ing some­thing a lit­tle ex­tra. White in­te­ri­ors will still be in hot de­mand as will dif­fer­ent tones of greys. For in­spi­ra­tion, pick up a Resene Range Fash­ion fan­deck 2020 from your lo­cal Resene ColorShop. For the ul­ti­mate sum­mer vibe, what is your go-to colour pal­ette and/or in­spi­ra­tion? My colour ob­ses­sions com­ing into the warmer months are all lean­ing to­wards earthy, mud­dier tones as op­posed to bright, clear tones. The stand­out colours for me are Resene Sun­baked, Resene Shabby Chic, Resene River­gum and Resene Thumbs Up. To cre­ate your own sum­mer pal­ette, try ex­per­i­ment­ing with Resene colour charts, test­pots and fan­decks or gather in­spi­ra­tion by cre­at­ing your very own mood board via the Habitat by Resene look book. Have fun – colour doesn’t have to be scary!
