According to the website 2020spaces.com, there are EIGHT colours we’ll be seeing plenty of in interior design this year, influenced as ever, by the fashion world.
It’s quite a diverse range of colours, including as it does Champagne, Navy Blue (which ties in nicely with PANTONE’s Colour of the Year), Golden Yellow, Olive Green, Light Pink, Dark Red, Charcoal and Mango.
Some of these colours will work well on their own, such as Champagne, whilst others can be combined to great effect – we like the idea of Charcoal and Mango, for example.
As a company that produces made to measure wallpaper murals for amazing feature walls, you’d expect us to say that all of these colours can be used to produce a mural you will love. And you’d be right!
To give you an idea of what can be achieved, we’ve created an example for each colour or colour combination. See what you think.
When you think of champagne, you think of bubbles, so that’s what we’ve gone for here but really any wallpaper mural design that contains that beautiful golden shade would keep you on trend this year.
Navy blue is a very versatile colour and gives you the freedom to choose all kinds of images with the shade. Here we’ve opted for an image with warmth and comfort, one that would work well in a number of rooms, including the bathroom and bedroom.
Yellow can brighten up any room but too much of it can actually have the opposite effect – that’s why it lends itself extremely well to a feature wall, like this one. We’re not talking about a bright yellow when we say Golden Yellow. It’s muted, more subtle, almost pastel, so choose wisely as anything too bright will not be on trend!
You might think olive green is a drab colour but it actually works really well as an accent colour. With this idea we’ve gone for an olive green embroidery image, introducing the colour to a bedroom roomset and reflecting the room’s use itself.
Subtle and beautiful, light pink for us is a welcome addition to the 2020 colour trends. It’s perfect for bedrooms, girl’s rooms (if that’s not too stereotypical these days), bathrooms and other areas. Evocative of tree blossom, as with our example here, it whispers spring…which is ideal for this time of year as we’re almost there!
Dark red is one of this rich and warming colours that can be used both as an accent or in full in a room. It can also be combined with other shades of red with ease. Here we have chosen to use an image with lighting that shifts the colours from dark red on the outside to lighter shades closer to the middle of the flower. It focuses the eye and brigs a natural, floral element to the bathroom.
Mango & Charcoal
As we said right at the start of this article, we think mango and charcoal belong together. The dark grey shade contrasts so beautifully with the pastel orange of the mango. The first thing that sprang to mind was sunsets…so we’ve gone for that with the shades included. Remember you can opt for a wall mural in one colour or the other and then contrast with the other walls, with accessories, cushions and other items in the room. Because these colours go SO well together, it’s really easy to do – you just need to balance it.
