Move over lavender… 2019 is all about deep and nurturing cool-based colours such as mauve greys and hunter greens. Their soothing, earthy qualities are a perfect choice for modern thinking parents.
Tonality is the key in this trend. Choose one neutral shade such as grey and layer different tones of the same colour for added depth and harmony. Look to the left and right of the colour chart and choose similar but slightly different shades of grey. You can incorporate them as accessories, furniture or textiles.
If you are worried about making the room look gloomy, punctuate the space with bright pops of colour such as life-affirming Living Coral – Pantone Colour of 2019, also known as peachy orange!
Use colours that complement the scheme rather than overpower it. A good point of reference will be the colour wheel showing you which colours go together.
