COLOUR TRENDS OF FALL/WINTER 2019/20
Summer has finally gone and we are taking big steps towards the cold season. This means that the colour trends autumn winter 2019/20 will find their way into our wardrobes and apartments as well. The trend report by the Pantone Colour Institute will once again be groundbreaking this year. While in summer we were still enjoying the colour of 2019, Living Coral, the new colour palette was already there.
Living Coral was inspired by the colourful coral reefs from the depths of the sea. The new winter colours follow the ongoing trend to draw inspiration from nature. This is also reflected in Pantone's colour palettes for autumn winter 2019/20. Powerful autumn tones and natural, dark earth nuances are featured on this season's selection. Orange and red shades dominate both the New York and London colour palettes by Pantone, followed by dark blue, green and brown. Nude tones continue to be favourite. We will introduce you to the most important colour trends and show you how to best mix them in your interior.
COLOUR TRENDS AUTUMN WINTER 2019/20 - BLUE & GREEN
"Galaxy Blue", "Evening Blue", or "Forest Blome" are based on the rich diversity of nature; they are reminiscent of the sea and deep forests. Dark colours make the interior dull and make a room look small? Light colours do the opposite? This widespread assumption should only be partially believed. Bright colours only increase a room's appearance with the right light, while dark colours - especially on the walls - add depth to a room.

The dark shades inspired by nature look wonderful on textiles. In combination with solid wood furniture and gold accessories, rugs, blankets and cushions they look particularly elegant.
