The colour of the year is..... BROWN. There has been a spike in adding the brown colour in peoples homes. We have encompassed all hues of browns into our wardrobes, now is time to do the same with our homes.
We have learned the art of slowing down and spending time in our homes, meaning the desire to create a space that allows us to feel calm is a necessity. The colour brown brings us a sense of warmth and cosiness whilst bringing refinement and class.
The psychology behind the colour brown indicates that humans feel a sense of security as there is a strong connection with nature, keeping our energies grounded and making us feel emotionally at ease. Brown restores balance in the space we live in and the designs we create have the ability to reflect our emotions.
Over the years there has been an uprise in minimalism, but it has always been interpreted with the clean canvas and white tones. People are ready for a fresh new colour in the interior palette, and this is a nod on the warm minimalism that we are seeking. White can sometimes be interpreted as stark, whereas brown is a fresh neutral colour that fits in with the current palettes we have been embedding over the years.
Think of 70s, chocolate brown, caramels and nature inspired textures surfaces paired back with soft curved furniture, ergonomic and mushroom shapes across ornaments and decorations. It will play the part of black and replace it as the accent colour, providing the deep neutral finish for a rich timeless interior.
Wanting to incorporate the colour of the year into your home? It’s easy to do so, swap out your black accent colour with a rich brown and play around with how the neutrals fit together. Mixing the brown earthy tones with greenery, plant pots and interior books will help bring the newness into your home.
