Paint Place’s 4 New Colour Trends are Mind-Blowing

I’ve lost my mind and I don’t think it’s coming back, Creatives! The team at Paint Place has just released its annual colour trend forecast and this year they’ve outdone themselves. Featuring four themes that showcase the magic you can create using paint at home, you’re going to struggle to lock in just one favourite. Let’s see why they’re so good!

This is a TLC solution for Paint Place

Paint Place Trend - Vintage

Above, the Vintage Luxe trend is making me weak at the knees. This look is all about channeling the nostalgia and luxury of yesteryear using deep violets, dusty pinks and subtle greys. The warmth of on-trend copper accessories takes this look to the next level and gives the setting a perfect balance of old-meets-new. Fans of second-hand furniture or vintage finds are going to love putting them against this colour palette. While it is pink and the shapes are somewhat feminine, you could easily butch this look up and rock it in a living room by introducing more grey tones. What are your thoughts on this look?

Paint Place Trend - Forge

The Forge Ahead theme above is an earthy extravaganza, utilising colours that feel moody and muddy. Dark charcoals, lush greens and rich eggplant tones bode well in rooms with an industrial edge, so if metal, rustic woods and recycled objects are your cup of tea, you need to take a big bite outta this trend. It’s so wonderfully masculine and would look great in a home office, teenager’s bedroom or a kitchen that’s crying out for a dark and mysterious aesthetic. The other great thing about this look is that it embraces items with imperfections, so bring out your weathered homewares and let them shine!

Paint Place Trend - Palm Springs

Above is the look I think will be most popular, because the Palms Springs theme conjures up a summery vibe with its use of unashamedly bright accents. Cool blues, crisp whites and splashes of vibrant yellows give this scene a fun and quirky vibe with a gentle nod to retro. It’s a bit of a Golden Girl delight in places – think peacock chairs and the lush, green plants that were popular in the eighties. Timber, cane and wicker furniture will really bring this look to life. Because of its sunny disposition, this is a winning look for any living space, especially the kitchen or lounge room. Is its brightness making you smile?

Last but certainly not least is the refined colour palette of the Shibori theme. Channelling the traditional Japanese art, this look celebrates so-trending-right-now indigo blue tones. Deep denim and watery blues give this look a visual story, while oak furniture and accessories – which are also popular right now – are going to lift this setting. Because the colour palette is so refined, pattern plays a big part in giving this look a little pizazz. A calm theme like this one is going to feel right at home in a bedroom, where you can let the subdued vibe relax your after a long day.
