As we give 2017 the warmest of welcomes in our first week back in the Viero UK office, it’s a fitting time to take a look at what’s likely to be trending during the upcoming year.
A new year often means new trends and, in the world of interior design, colour plays a huge part in how we tackle our projects.
While we always tell our clients that natural intuition is the most powerful tool when choosing your colour scheme, that doesn’t mean we can’t give you a little helping hand when it comes to this very personal selection process.
This year, we believe it’s time to take a bolder and more confident approach to tackling the dreaded colour palette dilemma.
We know that grey will continue to be as popular as ever. We completed more grey-shaded projects than any other last year and it’s hardly a surprise when you consider that its almost unrivalled versatility makes it a natural choice for any contemporary design brief.
But we’re asking our creative clients whether it might be time look at deeper, warmer greys or even use lighter greys as a great backdrop to introduce other bolder colours into their projects. And that’s exactly why we’re ‘feeling blue’ at the start of 2017. So much so, we believe deep ocean blue shades could well be the emerging colour of choice in the year ahead.
Our interior design partners can’t speak highly enough of the qualities these deep blue tones bring to the surfaces of both residential and commercial spaces. It brings great strength, coolness and warmth in equal measure and creates a peaceful environment due to its natural links.
Blue works well across large spaces which benefit from high ceilings and long corridors as well as bold feature walls. So watch this space as blue gets set to take centre stage as 2017 moves along.
