2018 Colour Trend Alert

The rule for the next year when it comes to decorating with colour is to keep it bold and daring.

Design specialists LUXXU share their trend forecast for the design colours of 2018.

All that shines

This upcoming year, gold will be thriving. It adds richness and warmth to any interior, and enhances everything around it while still being the central focus. It’s a bold colour tone that’s associated with success and wealth, evoking nothing but luxury.

Black is the new black

Black is such a timeless colour, because it adds just the right amount of elegance, drama and power to any interior setting. Often associated with sophistication and when combined with one of the biggest trends, gold, it becomes a luxurious and divine colour. 

When in doubt, go red 

It’s no surprise red carpets are red. It’s simultaneous classy and powerful, bold and fiery. When it comes to red, there is no shortage of variety with shades varying from pale red to deep burgundy. Benjamin Moore even selected one of the shades as colour of the year 2018. 

Coolest shades of grey

Grey is a timeless and soothing colour that can take a starring role in every interior, from the simplest to the boldest. A great colour to incorporate into any room of the house in the form of a full-on grey interior or a few pieces. 

White mischief

White is often associated with brightness and light, and with minimalist interiors. To get that wow factor when decorating with white, LUXXU suggests a white & golden colour palette – capable of making any interior pop.
