Get ready to fill our home with rich earth tones and deliciously dark hues

We may only be three months into 2018, but it’s never too early to get ahead of the trends for next year.

There’s no doubt we’ll soon be hearing about the biggest fashion, beauty and lifestyle trends heading our way in 2019 – and thanks to the those in the know at Pantone, we now have an idea of the colours that we’ll all be filling our homes with by this time next year.

For 2018, the colour that stole our hearts (and earned the title of colour of the year) was feminist Ultra Violet, and Pantone predict that next year we’ll be rooting for even more rich, dark hues.

According to the Pantone View Home & Interiors report for 2019, there are two main colour palettes that we’ll be drawing inspiration from.

The first colour palette is a feast for the taste buds. Titled ‘Cravings’, Pantone describe its nine colours as ranging from ‘spicy reds, sweet flamingo orange and rich purples’ to neutrals and grassy greens.

Next up is another rich colour palette, titled ‘Classico’, which features even more earthy, dark shades as well as a luxurious metallic gold and a few more timeless neutrals.

While both colour palettes contain dark and moody shades which could seem like an overwhelming choice when it comes to painting a whole room, there are plenty more subtle ways to use these colours in your home – think textiles, accessories and tableware for starters.

Time to draw up a little interiors shopping list, maybe?
