Spring Colour Trends

There's no denying that 2021 was a year to find new joy in our homes, with many of us filling our personal space with colour to keep them looking and feeling fresh. From calming neutrals to experimenting with bright and bold colour, we've rounded up the top colour trends for spring 2022.
Wall : Yellow Lotus (2021-50)
Over the last twelve months we've all enjoyed reconnecting with nature, whether this be our daily lunchtime walks or having a never-before found appreciation for the garden. Spending time in nature allows us to ground ourselves, to relax and recharge our batteries, so let's bring the outdoors in and invite this calming feeling into our homes. When you're experimenting, look to bring earthy tones into your space, play around with different hues of greens, blues and combine these with more grounded colours such as neutrals, browns and whites.
Lower wall : Misted Green (2138-50). Upper wall : Gray Mirage (2142-50)
A 2022 twist on an evergreen trend is the popularity of bright pastels. The inspiration behind bright pastels is simple; it's in the name. It's taking pastel colours and giving them a modern and uplifting twist to really bring the spirited feeling into the home. Introducing bright pastels is a quick and easy way to update and invigorate your space, helping to boost creativity and joy within the home. Whether you look to pair bright pastels with rustic rattan furniture or minimalist d�cor to let the colour do the talking, it's a trend that we expect to be around for a while.

Wall : Dusty Trail (1157)
Another key paint trend that we've noticed this year is detailing; honing in on the room's natural features to elevate the space with purposeful finishes. It's a way to express creativity by adding tiny and intentional touches to really let your personality come through. There are a few different ways to explore this trend. Why not look to complement the main colour with detailed stencilling peppered throughout the room? This delicate approach works best with a two-tone room, allowing the secondary neutral colour to act as a canvas for intricate work which will seamlessly pull the room together.

Alternatively, if you're after a more purposeful finish, look to areas within your home that can be accentuated with colour. Is there an alcove that can be turned into a bold statement feature? Or a wall with split texture contrast which can be highlighted with a complementary colour? Look at the areas in your home which lend itself to detailing for not only an instant burst of colour, but to elevate the space with creativity and a personal touch.
Alcove and door : Mysterious (AF-565). Woodwork : Collector's Item (AF-45). Wall : October Mist (1495)
Wall : Wild Flower (2090-40)
And finally, if highlighting the natural features of your home aren't quite enough, then why not go all out for the ultimate fearless choice, colour drenching. Colour drenching is the process of painting one colour across multiple surfaces in one room to create a bold finish full of personality. It's a brilliantly bold way to make an impactful design statement, transforming any room into an oasis of colour with a contemporary twist. It's a brave choice to make, but it can really pay off with its ability to accentuate smaller spaces, making any room feel more inviting and dramatic. For the ultimate contrasting feel, why not look to pair this bold modern design with antique features, such as a cast iron radiator to really bring the room to life?

So however you experimented with bringing colour into your home, from the bright and bold to the delicate and intricate, 2021 was the year for looking beyond the ordinary. There's no doubt that this playful and creative strand will continue into 2022; as we find new ways to make impactful and meaningful statements with colour. We're already looking forward to finding out what's next!
