Rich murals in this autumn’s fashionable colours

5 October, 2015

Autumn is in full swing and soon the leaves on the trees will be a mere memory. A new season brings new trends and colours that find their way into all the nooks and crannies of our homes, including wall murals. Autumn and winter’s furnishings and colour schemes are darker than usual; the white that has been the base colour in our homes for so long has given way to darker shades and dirty pastels. Nature plays a big role in this season’s interior design. The muted tones come from Mother Nature’s colour spectrum and are combined with natural-looking structures such as wood, concrete and marble.


Forest colours – green leaves and spellbinding shades


This colour trend encompasses all the neutral colours such as white, black and brown through to green tones in warm, rich shades. If you’re looking to add a splash of colour, furnishings with tones from the earthy spectrum make an attractive addition. If you decide on this trend, plants are a must – the more the better. Nowadays we are seeing more and more cacti, but palms and the monstera/cheese plant remain popular. Shades of green create a calm, harmonious setting and make it easy to relax.

Earthy colours – orange, coral and dirty pastel pink

The earthy colour scheme creates a wonderfully warm and cosy feeling in your home. Rich orange tones work well with dirty pastel pink and look great with brass and terracotta furnishings. This trend is a fresh, modern take on a wonderful 1970s vibe.

Blue shades are bigger than ever and span the entire spectrum – from light, matt pastel blue, through petrol to deep dark blue. Here too the shades can be slightly dirty, and they work wonderfully with grey tones and structures like marble and concrete. Cool blue tones create a sense of space, so if you’re looking to create a room with a cool, airy feel, this is the colour trend for you.

Columns – petrol
Fruta do dragão – ultramarine
