Colours we’ll be Craving in 2019

Interior design colour palettes for 2019

As we eagerly await the unveiling of Pantone’s ‘Colour of the Year’ we take a closer look at their Interior Colour forecast for 2019.  Designed to help manufacturers and retailers tread the right colour path for the season ahead, each year Pantone develops colour palettes to satisfy our need for newness.  Expect to see many of these hues across paints, fabrics, furnishings and home accessories as the new season’s collections hit the High Street.

Colours Inspired by Fetish Foods

One of Pantone’s Interior Colour collections predicted to be big in 2019 is ‘Cravings’.  A palette of berry brights, tempered with milky chocolate, inspired by indulgent fetish foods. Think fruit sorbets, berry topped puddings, chocolate peppered cappuccino and smooth coffee mousse.

How to ‘Get the Look’

From raspberry coloured walls and plush velvet sofas sofas to chocolatey leather accessories, the ‘Cravings’ colour palette can be dialled up or down depending on your desired look.  There are some great High Street finds at Marks & Spencer and Laura Ashley and looking forward to Spring schemes, Designers Guild ticks all the boxes with their new collections which include the Jaipur Rose fabric and zesty Varese velvets.

Designed to tempt the eye and whet the appetite, you can pick and mix from the palette to suit your needs. Use the warmer end of the palette to create a rich, sumptuous space or give it a fresh twist for spring by introducing Grass Green and 2018 Colour of the Year ‘Ultra Violet’.  Designers Guild seem to have it just right with their new Jaipur Rose collection in colourways such as cassis and rose. We’re calling this Fresh Cravings!
