About the collections
The four palettes and themes in the Colour Forecast are Sentience, Entwine, Chroma and Construct. Harper says these are carefully curated to reflect where interior trends will be heading for the next 12 months, based on research by the colour team, who travel to London, Paris and Milan Design Week as well as attending colour forecasting conferences. The team sort the colours that are emerging as trends into colour groups, “and then start to match them to our ideas about trends until a cohesive palette is formed,” says Harper.
The first trend, Sentience, “promotes harmony through its subtle pastels and soft organic neutrals,” explains Harper. “Entwine uses native influences from around the globe including woven materials, and an eclectic interior style that includes rich earthy shades combined with an unexpected twist of zesty yellow or blue. Chroma has a much bolder vibe with inspiration taken from the Memphis and Bauhaus movements: peach, yellow and teal hues are combined with optical illusions, layered materials and reflections. Construct has a fascination with strength and permanence, influenced by the Brutalism movement from the 60s and 70s. Simplicity, honesty and raw materials drive this solid palette of greys, metallics and darker hues.”
