New Year, New ColoursPosted by: Maria Iliffe
With the new year comes new colours, and they’re bolder than ever
Say your farewells to the neutral tones bringing comfort to your home and wardrobe. 2022 brings colour, attention and celebration, breathing life back into your styling.
Pantone was one of the earliest to announce their colour of the year, Very Peri. This beautiful purple reminds us of a similar colour spotted everywhere in 2020/21: lilac, now toned darker, this shade brings less subtilty and more vibrancy. Matching with the escapism trend, attributable to the pandemic, this exciting purple matches the necessary positivity and happy creativity that we need to move forwards from this depressive era.
Striving for contrast with our familiar neutral tones, dark blues are here to make a statement. WGSN sees 2022 bringing about a decidedly blue period, expecting to see these dark yet lively colours in your dining room and to the grander rooms in your home, but also as a statement colour in wardrobes.
Complementing our ties to nature, easy being green is here for the new year. Helping us transition from our neutrals, the mid-tone green brings light and breezy outdoor hues, inside for a calm pop of colour.
The simplicity of this tone, makes it almost too easy to incorporate into our homes, whether it accentuates a bedroom wall or adds a new layer to your winter wardrobe.
With these exciting colours, and the other vibrant tones expected this year, a simple feature could help change your styling game. Adding an oversized purple scarf or a combining your current greens to make a mixed tone, coordinated outfit; using these colours in your wardrobe is the way to be fashionable and on trend, in 2022.
