From the runway to your room

06 Mar 2018

Colour fashions go in cycles – no surprise to anyone, but they also flow from one area of our lives to another. First, they appear in clothing fashion; the colours we see on the catwalk are key indicators of the colour trends you can expect to see showing up across all areas of design, including our homes.

Each season, the Pantone Color Institute creates the Pantone Fashion Color Trend Report; a colour overview highlighting the top colours that fashion designers will be featuring in their collections for the upcoming season.

We’ve taken five of the Pantone colours for the season from their ‘fashion’ and ‘core’ suggestions for autumn and winter, and matched them to Resene paint colours so you can get the runway look at home. These autumnal hues evoke the feeling of leaves on the forest floor, rich plumage and twilight reveal a modern fall palette of deep and rich tones with outbursts of colourful surprise.

These five colours could be easily used across the seasons and as ‘trends’ stay relevant for longer, we can add variety through new textures, accessories and fabrics. They serve as the critical building blocks for your home… and your wardrobe.

Do you have a home full of wonderful Resene paint and colour? Send us some snaps by emailing editor Sharon Newey on [email protected].
