ARE YOU IN OR OUT......
of trend that is?
Over the last few weeks I have been doing my research as to what is going to be hot or not for 2018. Yes it's that time of year again when all of the big bods in the know start laying out their colour predictions for the year ahead. They're all at it. As you'd expect all of the Home Decor magazines and fashion houses are laying out their current trend colours for 2018 but even the big paint providing giants are at it too! Plus you might have realised by now if you've followed other ramblings on of mine that 'Colour' is absolutely 'My thing'. I guess it's all of the Art training in me coming out!
How exciting is it then to find out that 2018 is set to be the year for showcasing colour in it's boldest form providing us with endless possibilities to update our interiors? From furniture to paint to home accessories, it all depends how brave you are feeling and of course on your budget but colour is definitely going to be hot this year.
Ok, so there are 3 main trends for the year.....
According to House Beautiful, there's no place for neutrals here. The experts at luxury paint manufacturer Mylands state that 'Bright, Bold, Saturated and Strong; colour makes a statement with vibrant tones and a playful feel' and 'Canary yellow, lime green, citrus orange, peacock blue, fuchsia pink; colour is vivid and unashamed'.
So are you in or out?
Colour contrasts of Mustard Yellow with tones of blues and greys are definitely here to stay.
Judging by the fact that I've been making lots of these little beauties recently I'm guessing that many of you lovelies out there are bang on trend already.
If you haven't already met, this is the Bunbury Bumper Footstool in Graphite Grey, Mustard Yellow and Midnight Blue and the Arley Throw in Marl Grey. These colours are bang on trend.
2. BLACK IS BACK
On the complete opposite end of the spectrum, warm neutrals, sand and charcoal tones are set to take centre stage in 2018, with black tipped to be one of the year's statement shades. Now this might not be your bag but black is deep and dramatic after all. It has an intensity like no other that's for sure and can be wonderfully restful and calming.
So whether you fancy going for the monochrome scheme or to simply add metallic accents to your black theme, the matt shades of black along with Charcoal and Graphite Grey certainly provoke a sense of calm.
The Walton Throw seen here in Graphite Grey is already proving to be a popular choice.
And last but very not least, subtle hues with a nostalgic, vintage vibe are definitely here to stay. Think Greys, Lilac and Dusty Mink Blush, all soft in colour but strong in tone whilst creating a pretty look and a feeling of rest and revitalisation.

So there you have it!
I am crazy busy working on lots of new designs at the moment in these beautiful on trend colours and am beyond excited and can't wait to share them with you. As always though, these things take time and every single little detail has to be perfected by yours truly before they can hit the website, so I'm sorry but I'm going to have to keep you in suspense for a little while on that one. After all it's the making of all of your wonderful orders that keep the bills paid.
So if you're like me and you're now looking at your own decor at home and wondering about whether you should make some slight colour changes here and there, well just go for it! It's definitely going to be an exciting 2018 with lots of wonderful colours. Enjoy!
Until next time,
