Brown and Blue – The Color Trend of This Year
This is the Color Trend Everyone Will be Adding to Their Home Next Year
Salone del Mobile Milan is the interior design industry’s premiere event and is a big indicator of what will be on trend in the upcoming year. Many of the exhibitions have a lasting impact on mainstream design for several years.
Every show has its color trends and at this year’s instalment, blue and brown both combined and as separates dominated. The tones and richness of the hues varied. For the blues we’ve seen everything from robin’s egg to deep petrol, and for the browns we’ve seen colors as deep as chocolate and soft as sand. These colors pop against each other and make for a modern and sharp color combination. Playing up colors found in nature creates a settling and nurturing backdrop in the home – blues and browns are easily spotted by the ocean, so utilizing them to create a soothing space at home is a very natural step – especially if you are someone who grew up by the water.
Here are three pieces you can use to get jumpstarted on the trend:
The Haiku Armchair is an elegant almost minimalist armchair with soft curves. It comes in a variety of colors and fabrics including a soft shade of brown leather, as well as a lively fabric that combines slate and light blue.
The chocolate stained walnut of BDI’S Corridor Bar Cart adds both warmth and masculinity to a room. For a quick burst of the blue and brown color trend in your home, sit some folk-patterned blue and white china atop this piece, or some blue glass. Corridor has a mid-century modern design and its louvered double doors keep the items inside neatly tucked away. The Corridor doesn’t need to be used exclusively as a bar cart. With it’s plentiful storage and tabletop space it would make a great night table, side table, or could be used for extra storage in a washroom.
The Manolas Area Rug is centred around various shades of blue, brown, and black juxtaposed against each other. As the pattern moves outwards, soft white is introduced into the mix, creating a rug that features color, but is also neutral enough to be incorporated into most rooms.
