And which colours are trending? “Soft greys with a greenish undertone and neutral pinks are huge for 2018. We’re also seeing mint greens and playful pinks coming through,” says Lucena-Orr. Interior designer and stylist Bree Leech concurs, adding, “We’re seeing pink combined with deep red and burgundy – it’s a real ’80s feel but interpreted in a fun, modern way. A more minimal look is also emerging, with warm neutral hues, layers of texture and plenty of natural materials”.See more contemporary living rooms
Creating a colour scheme is not an easy undertaking, hence why there are colour consultants who do this for a living. Most paint suppliers have additional tools and services to help, including technology that can show you what your room will look like with a new paint colour, and information about what paint colours complement each other. And this I know from my own experience: spending some time considering your wall colour before making a decision is far better than having to repaint a whole room because you didn’t think it through.Your sayIf you enjoyed this story, like it, bookmark it, save the photos and share your thoughts below.

Grey: Grey is a popular colour for walls. It creates an instant modern look within a home as it’s sharp and strong. Using grey well on your walls is all about how you work with the colour to draw out its warmth, as you can run the risk of it making a room feel colder and smaller. Here you see an example of a light grey being used on the walls to accentuate the stunning detailing of the architecture in the interior and gently draw your eye to the white windows, the view and the angle of the roof line. This is where grey’s ability to be neutral and not draw attention excels, as it showcases what causes emotion in the room perfectly. Grey needs to be matched well. Other colours in the room are going to affect how the grey looks, so don’t trust how it looks in the paint store – you need to test it on your own walls.
