Colour Trends to Update Your Home | Interior Decor

Since moving home, I've done a lot of reading up about home decor, colours that work, neutral tones and how to accessorise. Unfortunately, as I've bought a new build, we're not allowed to paint for at least 12 months whilst the house settles, but I've done a lot of research and planning for what I'm going to do as soon as those 12 months pass. If you follow my home on Instagram, you'll know how interior obsessed i currently am, so you'll know I couldn't wait to start sharing my newfound knowledge to our readers.  

Over time, even the most beautiful property can start to look dull and in need of an update. Rather than completely redecorating your home, however, sometimes a lick of paint or a few accessories in a different colour can be enough to breathe new life into your space. Whether you want to give your home an update or you’re looking for ways to improve the appearance of your buy to let property and appeal to more tenants, take a look at these top colour trends for 2019.

Living Coral was voted Pantone’s colour of the year for 2019, and this cheerful shade is the perfect way to freshen up your property. Coral is the perfect colour to use if you want to add some warmth to a room in the home, such as the living room or dining area. Consider painting a feature wall in a coral shade, or if you prefer a more subtle look, add some coral accessories and furnishings.

Shades of green are set to be a big trend in the new year. Along with Living Coral, Pantone's 2019 colour palette also features shades such as Golden Lime, Martini Olive, and Terrarium Moss, providing a varied mix of greens. When used in interiors, green shades create a calming effect, which makes the colour a good addition for rooms like the bedroom. Since green also incites a sense of nature, it’s perfect if you want to make use of the ‘Biophilia’ trend of this year, which centres around bringing the outside indoors. Celebrate this trend even further by decorating your property with plants for a more natural touch of green.

Neutral shades
Neutral colours like white, grey and beige never go out of style. If you’re more focused on minimalist interiors and don’t want to use a bright shade in your property, repainting your walls with a fresh neutral colour can be enough to refresh the space. Property companies* like RW Invest recognise the appeal of neutral decor, using these shades to create a stylish, modern appearance in their properties.

Pink is a shade that many people tend to shy away from. When used in the right ways, however, pink can look beautiful in interiors, especially with softer shades like rose gold and peach. Pink can work well in any room of the home, either with painted walls or a few bold pieces of furniture. Pink sofas in velvet materials are a stylish way to utilise this trend and will look great paired with walls in shades like grey, dark green, or navy. 

Fresh and vibrant, shades of lemon are also expected to be a big hit in 2019. Yellow colour schemes work well in the kitchen, creating a welcoming feel and brightening up the space. For an easy way to add this shade to your home, try including small details like tea towels or storage boxes in lemon shades for an instant pop of colour.
