  1. Interior design trend – Pop statement colours

Firstly, and not for the faint hearted, interior designers have been going bold with their colour choices in regards to the latter half of 2023. With the four most frequently used being Mustard, Green, Blue and Red.

A little retro inspired, mustard and emerald green have often been seen paired together at this year’s shows, whilst blue and red have been used in combination for an electrifying palette.

To avoid feeling overwhelmed you can dip your toe with these colours by subtly introducing them through accessories and furniture, however for full impact we do encourage you to get that paint brush out.
