The Latest Interior Design Trends 2017

Blog Series

Part Three – Colour

15 June 2017        by Nicola Manning

The 29th annual International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) has just been held in New York City from 21-24th May.  In Part One of this blog series I looked at the latest furniture trends and in Part Two I covered off the latest lighting trends.  In this week’s blog I am looking at the latest in colour trends.

There were some some key colours which really came through at both ICFF and the various design showrooms we went to in New York.  Some of these key colours we have seen a taste of and some are quite different to recent colours we have been using.

Strongest Trending Colour – Green

We have been seeing a bit of green over the past year coming through in interiors and fashion clothing, but the predominant colour has definitely been blue.  Green is now stepping out from Blue’s shadow and coming into its own.  Green of all shades was on display, from deep forest green, to olive green, soft green and bright green.

Blue is still popular

Although Green is the colour d’jour, blue is still a popular choice.  The blues I saw were mainly greyed blues.  Another blue we saw a lot of was a bright turquoise blue.

Key Accent Colour – Grape

The emergence of grape as a key accent colour was very evident.  Beautifully rich and warm, this colour was seen on velvet sofas, chairs, pouffs and bedding.

Key Accent Colour – Pink

We have seen a lot of beautiful blush colours around for the past year or so, particularly after Pantone announced that Rose Quartz, along with Serenity, was one of their two colours for 2016. The pinks I saw in New York had more apricot tones in them, more salmon than dusky blush pink.

Neutral – Grey

The predominant neutral colour base is still grey.  I saw very little cream, taupe, beige or brown.
