Winter design trends

Neutral will always be the go-to palette for interiors, but designers are predicting more bold colours will appear in 2018.

Neutral will always be the go-to palette for interiors, but designers are predicting more bold colours will appear in 2018.

Homeowners are getting braver – on the walls and in furniture, with white walls and grey sofas making way for brighter and moodier tones in furnishings, and bold accent walls creating a statement in many homes.

We are leaning to the dark side of the colour wheel with navy, deep purple and emerald green all key colour choices for this year.

 

Hanging out

If you’re installing a light over a dining table, the experts at Beacon Lighting advise you to hang the light about 1.7 metres from the floor – this means the light fitting won’t intrude on those seated at the table. For a contemporary light with a touch of drama, we like Beacon’s Husk pendant in black. Visit beaconlighting.com.au.

 

Tip

Nervous about investing in a purple couch or blue feature wall? Just accessorise with moody cushions and retro pieces such as this vintage vase. This stack of cushions is from Domayne. Visit domayne.com.au.
