Next to Christmas, spring is probably the most awaited season in the entire year for interior designers and decorators. It is the time for spring cleaning, a time for renewal, growth and expansion. Spring is also considered to be the best time to put a property on the market, so a lot of people are looking into updating the look of their homes.

One of the best way to refresh the look of a house is to use modern colours. It will help create a contemporary feeling of a modern house.

Let's tale a look at what colours are trending for this Sping/Summer 2019 season according to Pantone

Pantone is offering us 2 sets of colours to get our inspirations from:

A colourful palette

 Supported by an array of modern neutral classics

Lets take a closer look at each individual colour and some of the examples of how we can incorporate them decorating a room.

1. Fiesta - A festive orange red, Fiesta radiates energy, passion and excitement.


Such a bright red is always a big statement. Use it in small doses as an accent throughout room to draw attention to a unique feature (like a beautiful art work) and add splashes of excitement . 

2. Jester Red - Adding depth and intensity, Jester Red combines rich elegance with urbanity.


More subtle, classical, easier to understand red. Looks amazing against greenery like in an example above.

3. Turmeric - an enlivening orange that infuses a hint of pungency into the palette.


Warm, vivid hue that came to us from the mid century era. Use it in velvet fabrics to channel that era or add as pops of colour to add warmth.

4. Living Coral - an affable and animating shade whose golden undertone gives it a softer edge.


Living coral a colour of the 2019! Beautiful shade that can work great in monochrome, traditional rooms as well as bright eclectic spaces.

5. Pink Peacock - the tantalizingly theatrical Pink Peacock fans out to a feast for the eyes.


Bold and bright! It screams of femininity and opulence. Use it in dark, masculine room to add balance. Will look great in luxurious satin and velvet finishes.

6. Pepper Stem - Zesty yellow-green Pepper Stem encourages our desire for nature’s healthy bounty.


Warm, earthy hue. It evokes feelings of serenity and piece. Adds understated sophistication, loved both by men and women.

7. Aspen Gold - Brightening our day, sunny Aspen Gold stimulates feelings of joy and good cheer.


Bright and cheerful in small quantities. Can be quite overwhelming en mass. Works great for kids playrooms, as pops of colour against grey palette and metal finishes.

8. Princess Blue - a majestic royal blue hue, glistens and gleams.


After greys and creams, blue is the most popular and safe colour amongst people who are afraid of colour. You can never go wrong with blue. 


9. Toffee - Deliciously irresistible, tasteful Toffee whets the appetite.


A complicated hue that needs an expert to bring it into decor and make it look outstanding. Best ways to use it in natural timber finishes.

10. Mango Mojito - The golden yellow Mango Mojito feeds our craving for pleasant comforts.


I call this colour - a yellow for adults. If Aspen Gold is too bright, choose Mango Mojito.

11. Terrarium Moss - Terrarium Moss conjures up thoughts of flourishing foliage and the physical beauty in the natural world.


Great colour for velvet and satin textiles. This hue add warmth and cosiness, but also look grown up and sophisticated.

12. Sweet Lilac - An endearing pink infused lavender, Sweet Lilac’s easy and gentle manner quietly charms.


A charming, sweet and cheerful colour that can work not only in girls bedrooms. A love affair with candy pink in our decors continues since 2016 when Rose Quarz together with Serenity became colours of the year.

13. Soybean - Subtle Soybean naturally appeals as a reliable and versatile neutral.


First colour in the Neutrals palette. It is best used as a back drop for other colours and can be found in all the unstained timber finishes around the house. 

14. Eclipse - A deep blue redolent of the midnight sky, thoughtful Eclipse is both serious and mysterious.


Eclipse is a dark blue with a hint of purple colour from the Neutrals palette. It is dark, moody and masculine.  Just like Princess Blue, Eclipse  will be one of the most understandable colours for clients. Use this colour to introduce people to the idea of using colours in decor.

15. Sweet Corn - Sweet Corn tempts with its soft and buttery attitude.


A third hue from the Neutrals palette. 100% neutral. The colour of virgin unbleached wool and linen. Light and chick. Can be both sophisticated as an upper east side condo or relaxed like a Queensland beach house. Compliment it with leafy greens and airy art works.

16. Brown Granite - Grounded and strong, Brown Granite is understated, authentic and timeless.


A strong colour that demands a lot of space around it. Don't use too much of this colour in one space or it will look old fashioned and heavy.
