The colours that please and inspire us shift over time, on an individual basis, but also globally. Our palettes morph fluidly as colours come on the scene and drift off to make way for other colours. Colours you love will never be truly out of style as they can be made fresh and contemporary by adding a more current colour to your palette.
Selecting colours that resonate with you and show off your home to it’s ultimate best, takes careful consideration. It’s a process that’s both art and science and one that many people struggle with. It’s easy to get confused with undertones, values, and so many possibilities. With a Colour Work Session, you’ll have, at your fingertips, your own personalized master palette and a clear understanding of how to keep it pleasing and fresh through all life’s events.
The colour trends over the past few years have been shaped by our deeper desire for calm, restorative homes. The global events of recent times have strengthened our resolve to make home our sanctuaries. Read on to see how this resolve affects the colours we’ll be craving over the next few years.

Trend forecasters observe multiple facets of life—social, political, economic, technological… Each of these areas is dynamic. So the changes we’re seeing are based on a continual evolution and remain consistent with what’s becoming the norm.
Urban Oasis for Autumn/Winter 2020
A place where one comes to unwind is reflective of their character. Let your sanctuary speak of dreamy late nights with pleasantly deep purples; of romantic mauve and pink who whisper things of fairytales; and of spontaneous dates shining through like the golden sun reappearing after a week-long storm.
Perfect for those crisp nights, these colours will turn your ordinary home into your unique Urban Oasis.
The purple hues are also prominent in Trend Bible’s Sweet Lavender palette. However, instead of pinks and mauves, there are warm, rich golds and oranges, offset with pops of greens and blues.
This maker palette is craft-inspired: cosy knits, needlepoint, hooked rugs, and custom ceramics. It’s tactile and hands-on.
To help with altering emotions of the early setting sun is this collection of supplemental reds and oranges. An ideal alternative for the hazy afternoons, these vibrant hues provide more than warmth but introduce the much-desired colours of the season, such as pumpkin orange.
To offset the intense hues, minty green adds a dash of crisp freshness concluding the essence of the Fall Spirit.
Notice how the hues shown here for Bohemian Lounge mimic those in the Fall Spirit palette. But the material direction here shows even more depth.
Look for texture and subtle variation in tone-on-tone. Patterns are a little more abstract with unexpected colour combinations.
Cabinet of Curiosities
Bursts of bold colour are layered onto moody, darker grounds in this eccentric, yet sophisticated palette. Use antique-looking pink and tonal combinations of golden olive, or mauve and reddish off-black to balance out strong contrasts.
Oxidised copper green and vivid teal offer an edgy element. Introduce cassis shades to add richness.
Traditional shapes have a fresh look with modern materials and finishes. Products are display-worthy. Both key motifs and religious iconography add decorative appeal. And again, notice the mix of texture and finishes.
How will you use colour to create calm in your home?
