Get the trends for 2017 from Habitat plus

02 Nov 2016

What colours will be embraced in our homes during the next few years? What decorating directions will emerge? Trends don’t happen overnight. They gestate over many months, even years and are influenced by many things.

Colour experts predict our palettes years in advance but how we integrate those into our own homes is very individual.

A new booklet from Habitat and Resene is here to help. Showcasing colours from the new Resene The Range fashion colours fandeck, the booklet explores the concepts and philosophies behind decorating trends, from sharing and upcycling to global influences and handmade elements, and gathers in the colours that enhance those.

From weathered tones, to botanic greens, bronzes and terracottas, and storm blues, it shows you inspirational, on-trend ways to incorporate these into your own homes.

Here’s a taste of what to expect, from the chapter called Rescue:

Rescue: Forget recycling, think rescuing, upcycling and sharing.

Look at your old treasures through a new lens and see the endless possibilities. Today’s interiors are not about perfection. They’re about seeking the handmade, seeing the beauty in uniqueness and that ‘flaws‘ can be memorable and beautiful.

Take a walk down memory lane and feel the nostalgia in a single piece of furniture or accessory. Share your finds with others. Our concept of ownership is changing as we revel in a sense of community. We repurpose objects as well as spaces, as our families grow and spread. We can bring the memories with us, reinvented for today and tomorrow.

Top tip: Cherish your treasures with paint that will keep your memories alive. Use Resene Enamacryl for a tough gloss finish, Resene Lustacryl for a semi-gloss sheen, or Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen or Flat for a soft chalky finish.

Upcycling, repurpose and reuse. Resene Rascal is a ‘personality neutral’ – a delicious blend of blush, soft tan and peach – used on the walls. It’s teamed with a floor in Resene Unwind, a cane bedside table in Resene Mozart, and an ottoman in Resene Inside Back. The pots are in Resene Inside Back and Resene Stetson.

Add a floaty bed-net made from Pause voile in colour Naturalle from the Resene Curtain Collection, and some washed linen bedding.
