Colour predictions for 2022

Pantone the king of colour has released their 2022 colour of the year and while I love the name (Very Peri) I'm honestly kind of unimpressed - its being sold as a Periwinkle inspired colour, yet its clearly nowhere near a periwinkle blue but more a not millennial pink but close enough purple. And while I know that yes Periwinkles the flower do come in purple, the exact shade chosen I can't help but think maybe the marketing team at Pantone maybe spent a bit too much time watching friends over lockdown... 

When I think of Periwinkle as a colour this is what I see... Not Purple.

In the Pantone Fashion Color Trend Report Spring/Summer 2022  they also feature standout colors that predict fashion design trends during the upcoming London & New York Fashion Week, Pantone’s vibrant and bold offerings can also be incorporated into the home design space.

London Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2022

Flashy warm blues and corals - not too far from a previous post we've done on Kingfisher Colours this almost seascape of bright airy blues and coral rusty reds is so evocative of the ocean - without the need to theme everything like a coastal BnB. Not only does blue remind us of the sea,  it’s the complementary color of orange making it an ideal partner for orangy shades of coral.

This bold colour palette works in every room of the home, even though it can seem intimidating, When you see this stunning colour combination can you see yourself wearing it, or could it be the perfect fresh palette to bring into your home. A massive step away from the soft Sage Green and earthy greys that have been so popular over the last few years punchy corals and vivid blues are going to make a really hit in the interiors world over 2022. And I for one cannot wait to see it! 

Punchy contrasting colours are about to have a moment, with acid green, seventies ochres and hot hot pinks having a moment! Not for the faint of heart, bold colour schemes are back with a bang and these eclectic vibrant colours are set to be everywhere! Interiors trends almost always follow fashion trends so watch out for these colours over the next couple of years. If you're not brave enough to do a whole room I'm sure you'll see them creeping into your accessories as accent colours.

Be brave, be bold - this trend is all about committing to all things out there. Fushia, lime and earthy contrasting umber creates a fresh and vibrant interior, perfect for livingroom, diningrooms and hallways.

Pale and earthy 

This pallette is just so fun - the cute combination of pastel yellows and pinks has a really playful feeling together with earthy browns can look seriously cool. This light and stylish colour scheme 

This glamorous and delicate palette is ideal for creating a feminine yet sophisticated interior - playful without being childish, I see these colours appearing everywhere in 2022. 

The Spring/Summer 2022 New York Fashion Week

The Spring/Summer 2022 NYFW Colour Palette shows a wonderful mix of inspiring colours that we are sure to see across the pages of interiors magazines throughout the year. I am loving the hard contrasts between dreamy pastels and vibrant bold colours. 

This colour range is cool and warming in equal measure, perfect to creating layered and stylish looks with unexpected punches of rich colour in otherwise minimal interiors. 

Dreamy Blues 

Blue is the colour of fine weather, calm waters, and good times, and quite frankly we all need more of those having lived through the last few years. These dreamy shades make interiors feel serene and lifted with blue accents, pale grey decor, and wisps of delicate white.

Delicate and charming these sleepy blues are perfect for seaside styled interiors, these cool and subtle colours make for a grown-up and calming space - the much-needed antidote for the last two years. 

Bring on the Pinks

Whether punch and powerful vibrant pinks or sleepy pastel shades pink is continuing to be a powerful force in the interior scene. I predict a resurgence of coloured bathroom suits because who isn't tired of the clinical white that have dominated our homes for the last few decades. 

These warming and fun interiors can be really exciting or soothing and soft - there is definitely something of the 90's in these interiors.

Earth & Electic

Minimal has a new face, instead of the sterile and white looks of the 2010's we're seeing a far more tonal minimal style with shades of neutral, mixed with pops of highly pared back colours and a mix of materials to create a mature timeless look. 

Honestly, a neutral colour scheme never goes out of fashion and is a sure way of making a beautiful home. Warm neutrals can create a professional-looking home if you stay within a very specific colour theme and stay away from too many bold prints.

Layer of Blue

I adore a rich blue interior and these deep dark shades are some of my favourite to see used in interiors. They always look so sumptuous and show off a rooms light beautifully. I adore deep navy for a touch of drama contrasted with pale shades of sky blue and crisp whites.
