Home Living : September 7th 2010
HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, September 7, 2010 3 HOMELIVING Colours of the future A mix of bold and subtle shades will be the colour trends for 2011. The forecast is a juxtaposition of bold statement colours such as reds, pinks and greens with subtle neutrals and greys. Each year the Haymes Paint team unveils a creative colour forecast based on its interpretation of emerging national and international trends. Developed by Haymes Paint colour and concept manager Wendy Rennie, the 2011 Colour Expressions forecast considers the faster-paced trends evident in the fashion and make-up industries, combined with the emerging directions in homewares and interiors. ''Neutrals are always a vital component in a colour forecast, however in 2011 we are seeing the introduction of a mix of more subdued romantic colours. The other key direction is the shift from black to grey in fashion, which we have reflected in our charcoals and smoky purples palette,'' she said. ''We then have some very vibrant colours in shades of pink, red, blue and orange that spark curiosity and energy. They are not for the faint-hearted but they can really make a statement if used by a courageous, confident decorator." The Haymes 2011 Colour Expressions Forecast is broken down into the following seven key themes and trends: Intrigue -- a dark, moody palette of strong charcoals (Enigma and Element) and smoky purples and greys (Verbena Violet and Baked Clay), reflecting the shift from black to grey in fashion and the shimmer of subtle purples and lavenders in make- up; Fusion -- a mix of strong, warm earthy colours that fuse together many points of reference within our environment. A uniquely Australian colour, Red Earth, reflects the colour of our landscape, which combines well with the other rich tones represented by Finch, Tobacco Brown, Ginger Boy and Castlegate; Minimalist -- a focus on the theme 'white on white', showcasing the range of whites; Bare Essentials -- a back-to- basics look at neutrals that can be used as a great back drop for bolder colours. Hot Stuff -- it's pink, orange and red . . . colours that pack a punch and, when used creatively, can add a unique look to a room. Glorious Raspberry Sorbet and spellbinding Tahitian Sky are sure to entice; Recollections -- an eclectic mix of fun and funky colours that hark back to the memories of childhood delights. The blue of the sea at your annual holiday haunt (Blue Madonna), or the pink of the fairy floss at the local show (Emily); and Nude -- a mix of subdued romantic colours that reflect the ''nude'' sensation being featured on the red carpets of events across the world. A romantic take on the classic neutrals. Details: haymespaint.com.au or free call Haymes Service Express on 1800 033 431 Is Noise a Problem?
