Pitched Colours: Bold Contrasts and Strong Colours

Neutral colours and powdery tones, Scandinavian wood and natural materials: you couldn’t go wrong with the Scandi interior style and its subtle nuances over the last few years.

Now things are becoming bolder again. Strong colours are back and they’re not alone – after all, they have the most effect as striking contrasts. Their intensity is determined by where you use them.

Those who are courageous paint entire walls and make sofas and rugs colourful accomplices, whereas bright accessories such as blankets, vases or candles offer a softer introduction to colour.

Moods are somewhere between animated and muted. Entirely on trend, but perhaps something for the more daring among us, are signal red, ultramarine blue and canary yellow. Dark blue or wine red are easier to combine – and incidentally also go with the copper accessories from the hygge era.

Monochrome harmony is a thing of the past; things are looking much brighter now. Interior design is now embracing all colours, from soft to strong, just like in a paintbox. ©
