C&G's Guide to 2019's Key Colour Trends

If you’re planning to update the style of your home or investment property in the coming year, keeping abreast of current trends may help inform your design decisions. In today’s blog, C&G unpack the Pantone Colour Institute’s Colours of the Year, and suggest ways to incorporate them into your home design.

PANTONEVIEW Home + Interiors heroes two colour palettes specifically chosen for home and interior design. Whether you’re a stickler for trends or you’re planning a full design overhaul of your home or investment property, being aware of the hot colours for the year ahead will set you ahead of the curve in the style stakes.


Palette 1 – Cravings


Alluding to seductive ‘fetish foods’ according to Pantone, the Cravings palette includes a spicy mix of warm reds, flamingo oranges and rich purples to lift any space. Featuring a cooling spritz of dark green, the palette as a whole has a Mediterranean feel when weaved into kitchens and dining zones.

Perfect for coastal feel decor or an uplifting take on a minimalist bathroom, the Classico palette will be one to take you through season after season.
