Trends from the Interior Design Show Part 2

After visiting many booths at the Interior Design Show, we found neutrals complemented with bright hues that hints at bright hues found outdoors. Warm colours were combined with cool grey overtones — bringing traditional décor back into contemporary living spaces.

Among the tones; mauve, lavender and violet were found to be trending complemented by bright, lively tones such as yellows. We also found bold colours such as orange along with earth tones such as browns and greens.

Neutrals such as white and pastel greys, teals, bleached denim hues and ocean blues were also featured prominently.
