Colours Set To Dominate The Home Decor Scene In Summers This Year
The home decor segment thrives on colours. As cliche as it sounds, it is true. Decorating a house without colours is unthinkable. Whether you are a homeowner or an interior designer, a change of season means skimming through the magazines to learn about the next big colour trend.
Now that the weather’s warming up really fast, it is time to rethink the home decor you have lived with day in and day out for the last few months. Your wardrobe has certainly taken a 180-degree shift, your house deserves to be revamped too.
Here’s a quick round-up of 8 beautiful colours that are set to rule the summers of 2018:
1) Ultra Violet
When Pantone Colour Institute announced “Ultra Violet” as the Colour of the Year for 2018, it seemed a natural choice for home decor and lifestyle industry. This hue is bold, forward-thinking and represents a tectonic shift away from the softer pastels that previously dominated.
Ultra Violet has that undeniable, magnetic quality that easily elevates the glam quotient of any area in the house. Create a royal charm on the dining table with a rich purple tablecloth or a runner. Combine it with gold cutlery or any neutral coloured dinnerware.

The end-result is simply fascinating.
2) Tech green
As the name suggests, this colour draws inspiration from the innovations in tech. It symbolizes the fad of the next big thing. Tech green is modern and playful. Check out this bright green fireplace. It stands out and gels well with icy blues and earthy browns present in the room’s decor.

Sprucing up the dining area with tech green-kissed furniture is not a bad idea either. The key is to use it moderately. A big quality about this colour is that it brings an entire room to life. It is sophisticated yet not too serious.
We love it. Do you?
3) Rapture rose
Pink in any shade or hue will never go out of style. In 2017, millennial pink stole everyone’s hearts and this year, the decor industry go abuzz with rapture rose. It is youthful, feminine and boho chic. The best quality about rapture rose is that it is an extremely accommodating colour and stands out even in the most chaotic design schemes.

4) Black chiffon
Can black ever go out of fashion? We don’t think so. Black has such a magical personality that it makes its way into every fashion and decor lists in different hues, each year. To get the most out of black, opt for a monochromatic bed linen, and a majestic accent wall in black chiffon.
An all-black home office gives serious but chic vibes. Punctuate the space with smart lighting and a hint of metallic accents. We are totally crushing on this living space. How about you?
When people walk into a red-soaked room, they respond immediately. This is exactly the kind of reaction that caliente or deep red strives for. Raise your home’s style quotient with this bold, energetic and glamourous hue.
Caliente goes amazingly well with colours such as blue and gold. Check out this dining area with a patterned blue accent wall and red chairs. The space defines easy luxury.

Similarly, this living room makes good use of caliente, black and gold and spreads luxe vibes.
A stunning combination of yellow and metallics, marigold is one bright colour with unlimited appeal. It stands out but isn’t jarring. If you find the right colour to go with marigold, it is easy to strike a balance in the decor spectrum.
The combination of marigold and black creates a warm and welcoming bedroom space.
We also appreciate the subtle use of marigold in photo frames and furniture finish.

7) Sage green
The kitchen is the perfect place to play with this nurturing colour. The cupboards in sage green can completely transform the look of the cooking area. Pair it with shades of white and cream, and wooden finishes in the space to instill all-country vibes.
Create a focal point in the bathroom by painting the cabinets sage green. The space will look warm and inviting.
