We’ve just returned from the ‘Haymes 2015 colour forecast’ preview and are excited to share with you the hottest colour trends for next year.
At the Den in the Ivy, we were treated to a sensory journey around five stations designed to stimulate our five senses. Each station showcased one of the five trends that make up Haymes’ 2015 Colour Expressions Forecast.
The muted tones at ‘New Skin’ and ‘Exotic Botanic’ were our favourites and we are already planning some DIYs using these colours!
‘New Skin’ is inspired by the familiarity and comfort that you get from your favourite pair of jeans — a feeling of a second skin. This relaxed, cool theme explores denim-related textures and colour tones and how these translate within the home. Filled with deep blues and greys, it’s hard for us to pick a favourite colour from this luxurious yet homely colour palette!
Nature’s beauty was the inspiration behind the ‘Exotic botanic’ colour trends. We loooooove ‘Ash Grey’ (a soft blue/grey hue) and ‘Dusty Beige’ (a muted pink) for the home. These tones are ideal if you are creating a space of depth and affluence.
If you prefer a more earthy and neutral colour palette, the soft hues in ‘Raw’ will be just your thing. This palette, including ‘Phantom’, ‘Rockslide’ and ‘Taupe Shadow’ (our fav), is very subdued and the perfect base for any interior styling.
‘Rhythmic palms’ explores the notion of escapism and replenishment through a deep, rich palette that amplifies colour and pattern. Combining dark charcoals and lush greens, this colour trend presents a fresh and crisp take on what lies beneath the treetops.
Looking for a burst of bright colour? ‘Relaxed replay’ takes a step back in time to bring a retro revival theme influenced by Miami Beach. Hot pink ‘Charlotte’ and sherbet yellow ‘Sunburst’ are a few of the bold and effervescent colours in this palette.
