Colour Trends for 2015

Already well into January we’re ready to crack open our pots of paint and get our living environments looking as modern and fresh as we can get them.

Resene has shared with us some of their paint colour trends for 2015 to watch out for.

Dusty and smoky, there is a new palette of colours coming through, such as Resene Mesmerise, Resene Soulmate and Resene Abercrombie, that feel timeless, gently weathered and softened over the passage of time.

Reds are strong and powerful, with influencing blue tones, such as popular Resene Pohutukawa and Resene Poppy. Fire engine red is not to be ignored with hues such as Resene Havoc.

Grey has hidden depths; sometimes blue, sometimes green. Once the complement, it’s now a feature. Deep grey, such as Resene Gumboot and Resene Half Bokara Grey, appeals to those who yearn density and depth but don’t want to commit to the starkness of black.

When it comes to green, the coming trends are diverse. On the dark side there are the earthy camouflage and nature inspired shades that would look right at home in the deepest jungle with hues such as Resene Seaweed.
