Colour Blocking, The Interior Design Trend of 2020?
Whether you’ve seen it or not, there is absolutely no denying that in recent years people have once again been aiming for ‘out there’. Fashion is cyclic, and so is interior design.
Fresh from the new year’s celebrations, it’s time for our first major trend of 2020. With no signs of slowing down, Colour Blocking seems likely to be the huge interior trend of this year! Enormous on Instagram, this doesn’t require a qualification in design or in-depth knowledge, simply pick two bright and bold colours that clash and make them work, in any way you want! Whether you’re furnishing, painting or decorating, this is a fantastic minimalist way to give any room the wow factor, in real-life or on Instagram.
This minimalist display of colour blocking comes from @thecindygram, and shows just how beautiful the simplicity of (or lack of) vivid colour can be.
Making the most of an all-white room, this revamped kitchen diner is truly dreamy and really makes the most of some abstract splashes of bold blue colour.
With the painted blue wall and cabinets the main feature, a few small additions are all that are needed to complete this room. A stylish sofa, side table and hanging lamp fit perfectly.
Pairing a regal royal navy blue with Pantone’s colour of 2019, living coral, this is an incredibly simple yet effective feature wall design that would look great in any home.
Though this look is aided by the use of a number of prints, patterns and house plants, the striking aesthetic is held together by the key bold colours.
Alongside these luxurious, stand-out colours, the finished look of this room is heavily complemented with the use of some beautiful soft furnishings.
How’s this for an ultra-stylish bathroom? From @utkang, this simply designed shower and bathroom space is a fantastic example of how two completely different colours can be a match made in heaven. To give this space the ultimate charm, chalky candyfloss pink tiles have been paired with a marvelous mint green paint, and accessorised with some amazing chrome furnishings.
If you are feeling inspired to get involved with colour blocking, you could go the whole way and repaint an entire room of your home – especially if you’ve been in dire need of an excuse to clear the room out and start again. If you aren’t so keen to make a major change, colour blocking is a punk trend, the only rule is that you have to do it your way! You could start with some brightly coloured cushions on a dark sofa, or why not some bold curtains against a grey wall?
