Spring 2017 colours from Farrow & Ball
Popular paint brand Farrow & Ball issued their four key colours set to dominate interiors according to their trend predictions for Spring 2017. The four colours - Radicchio, Studio Green, Hay and All White - have "an enduring appeal that remains comfortingly familiar despite being used in surprising combinations". Radicchio is right in your face and will likely make you feel hungry whereas Studio Green is right up my street and would so easily use it in my home. All White is an all round favourite of interior designers and Hay is a golden-neutral with green undertones that will surprise you.
Warm colours tend to advance so you feel like they are coming towards you. Inevitably this also means that the space will feel more intimate. At the same time red apparently stimulates your appetite which explains why it has long been a popular colour for dining rooms.
Well, according to Farrow & Ball, red in the form of Radicchio will also stimulate discussions once you place it in other rooms, be that on the wall or as a feature colour on cupboards and ironwork (imagine vividly painted radiators against a crisp white or warm pink wall!).
