Colour Trend – Fuchsia

During the warm and sunny summer months there is nothing better than injecting a little tropical colour into your home interiors to create a warm and uplifting ambiance that is bright and inviting. This seasons hottest interior colour trend that is sweeping the UK is rich and luxurious FUCHSIA.

This vivid colour choice can be used as a base colour or as an accent tone in your accessories or fabric to create a stunning visual interior space that oozes glamour and opulence in any room of the home.

 

Colour Palettes

Fuchsia is a versatile colour choice as it sits comfortably alongside both bold and neutral colour palettes.

Cushions

Cushions look fabulous in this eye popping colour and can be purchased in a range of styles and patterns to compliment your interior tastes. A selection of plain or patterned fuchsia cushions will add a ‘colour pop’ to a plain white sofa for a chic minimal feel.

Upholstery

A colourful choice of upholstery can transform an entire interior space without the need for extensive redecoration.

Colour Trend – Aquamarine

For me no colour sums up the summer months more than the cool and bright blue tones of Aquamarine. Its coastal ambiance and tropical sense of relaxation is perfect for creating a tranquil space in any room of the home.

This versatile colour choice looks fabulous in both classic and contemporary interiors and creates a fresh interior feel that bursts with vibrancy and zest.

Moroccan

Aquamarine is a staple colour in Moroccan style interior designs. Its lustrous tones provide the perfect backdrop for bright and intricate Moroccan accessories and rugs and can be partnered with simple white or a multitude of vivid colours for a plethora of rainbow tones. To recreate this look select eastern pattern wallpapers, cushions and upholstery and team your bold colours with plain wood, white or silver painted furniture for a splash of luxury and opulence. This theme works particularly well in a bedroom area as its calming tones look wonderful with swathes of netted fabric and bold bedding.

 

 

Retro

1960s interiors embraced the use of colour within their homes and aquamarine became a favourite colour choice as a stand alone colour as well as within the psychedelic interior style. Opt for a bold retro wallpaper in a range of funky colours and patterns or why not choose a statement furniture item in your chosen aquamarine tone that will create a bold and eye-catching focal point in a neutral interior space. Plastic chairs, beanbags and stools look great in this colour selection and can be teamed with contemporary tables or more vintage style oak and hardwood finishes for a mix of colour, texture and appearance.

 

 

Shabby Chic

An aquamarine accent colour works really well against the crisp vintage backdrop of shabby chic interiors. Its calming tones create a bright and uplifting ambiance that can be picked up in a range of accessories or in a floral print wallpaper or upholstery design. You can uplift an old dresser by creating a distressed antique white exterior and painting the internal back panels in a rich aquamarine for a pop of colour that does not distract from the vintage elegance of the room. Aquamarine lamps, photo frames and mirrors are also a great way of introducing this fabulous colour choice into a classic home interior.

 

 

Fabrics

Fabrics and upholstery can transform the look of any room in a simple yet effective manner. Rich swathes of aquamarine curtains can add a quick and colourful update to an otherwise plain or neutral interior space. Cushions are another great way of ‘zoning’ this colour into your home and create a textural and visual style against your bed or seating area. If you would like to try your hand at some DIY furniture design then you can re-upholster an old chair or pouffe for a statement furniture item that will take centrestage in any interior setting.
