Sensational Colour Combinations
Using colour is always an interior design must, with a few hues being key trends for this Autumn and Winter. Grey is hugely popular for its versatility of shading and ability to feature in almost every theme of interior design, universally working to complement each of the other trend colours. Shades of blues and greens feature as the seasons popular darker colours, used in a variety of furnishings, from sofas and chairs to soft furnishings and statement walls.

Blue colour schemes are ever popular, especially in darker shades of midnight blue, ink and indigo, whilst radiant teals feature in stunning home accessories. Midnight and navy blues are used to create dramatic atmospheres. A dark blue background can be created through dark navy or indigo blue wallpaper, which looks fantastic as a backdrop against reclaimed wood furniture to create a real antique chic feel. In combination with grey, blues can work wonderfully as a modern colour scheme. The key is to mix up different shades to create depth and tone, so be sure to get creative with a variety of darker blues and light to dark greys.
Whether you want to use colours in sofas, chairs or just accessories, the beauty is in playing with your options and experimenting with how they integrate with different styles of interior design. Dark, stormy colours can be used in dark grey throws whilst blue cushions can vary in shade, perhaps adding a blue geometric rug or similar soft furnishings that feature veins and splashes of white. Retro wood furniture, such as a vintage coffee table, gives a new dimension that breaks up the colour and can be furnished with silver home accessories for further texturing.
Picking out vibrant colour with vivid teal is another popular choice. A teal lamp shade or teal ornament will look simply stunning against grains of wood as a finishing touch to this fabulous interior design idea. Brass and copper make wonderful additions to blue colour schemes and can be incorporated into any room through wall clocks or pendant lamp shades.
Greens can be used in very much the same way as blue hues, with darker colours being popular in soft furnishings and statement walls. Forest green home accessories compliment the natural look of wood furniture. A green shaggy rug looks totally natural against wooden flooring whilst green cushions and green throws flow perfectly with blue colour schemes or can be used in the same way as blue with greys.
