“The season began with a good deal of anticipation about the Colour that will wear the crown this year and adorn our homes and interiors. Pantone has already announced Greenery 15-0343, a refreshing new shade, symbolic of new beginnings as their choice. Dulux declared Denim Drift, a timeless and versatile grey-blue tint, as their Numero Uno choice. Sherwin Williams went with the timeless, classic Poised Taupe, while Shadow—a rich, royal amethyst was Benjamin Moore’s selection and Farrow & Ball named Peignoir, a dreamy, hazy grey-pink, as their favorite hue this year.” QS Supplies.

QS Supplies, which has an online store selling everything you need for a designer bathroom, conducted its own independent online survey seeking opinion and colour forecasts from world renowned designers about the Colour of the Year 2017. Delighted to participate I was intrigued to find out what the other design experts said; around 350 experts were consulted worldwide.

My prediction

My clients have wide ranging tastes when it comes to colour but I’m seeing a return to warmer neutrals such as PANTONE 15-1040 TPG, Iced Coffee. It’s bolder than beige and easy to mix with more vibrant hues. It makes a super backdrop to copper, gold and silver – in fact any of the metallics shine against this luscious colour. In our UK climate we need a bit of comfort and I’m not surprised this cosy laid back hue is becoming a popular addition to a wider palette of colours for the home.

It seems my thoughts are in line with US paint supplier Sherwin Williams who chose Poised Taupe as their colour for 2017. I wonder what your colour for 2017 would be? Tweet me @YasminChopin using the hashtag #TalkingInteriors.
