Fill your home with colour: Interior colour trends for Spring/Summer 2019
It is that time of the year when we work ourselves up to tackle the much-needed Spring cleaning and, finally, make room for a fresh start. Nature is awake and promises an exciting season ahead, so now more than ever it is time to open ourselves to a change of perspective and invite colour and opulence into our homes. Straight from the runways comes the mix of animated, vibrant shades, ready to be embraced in both our closets and home decor. Let’s find out what are the top interior colour trends for Spring/Summer 2019 and discover the best furniture and decor pieces to jump the trend wagon.
The Spring/Summer colour palettes always come to lift our spirits after a long, stark winter of limited colour presence. In Spring collections, we are used to seeing sweet pastels and zesty shades that make us look at the world with optimism and evoke the feel of openness and freedom. However, this year brings something a bit different!
Pastels are still here, of course, but according to Pantone Colour Institute (the most famous colour authority in the world), seasons ahead will be coloured in rich, warm hues we usually associate with Autumn.
We bring you Pantone colour predictions for Spring/Summer 2019, but also what we learned by analysing what runaways and the biggest furniture fairs brought so far.
Let’s have a look at what’s cooking!
Cheery, unisex yellow is, no doubt, the colour of the season, and we are about to experience its array of shades – from pale, egg-yolk yellow to almost mustard. If you haven’t already fallen in love with the yellow colour, we promise you – it is going to happen this year!
The lightest of the bunch, pastel yellow is so lovely and optimistic. It sits somewhere between lemon and cream and is such a breeze to be around. It pairs well with other pastels.
This light lemony yellow promises a dreamy summer year around. It is cheerful, positive and delicious!
This warm yellow with a golden undertone is sunny and upbeat and is meant to bring joy and a good cheer anywhere you find it.
A hero of the previous seasons, pink is still highly favoured, and we are loving all of its looks!
Blush pink is so feminine and delicate! It brings to mind tenderness and elegance (blush pink velvet, anyone?). It can be both girly and sophisticated and pairs well with all of the colours from this list.
Pressed Rose Pink
This bright pink is a more modern version of Blush Pink. It balanced between childish cheer and feminine luxury and is already hitting the shelves a big time!
This intense magenta is fierce and a bit theatrical. Pink Peacock is not a shade you can ignore as it is meant to feast the eyes. For those brave enough to use it, the good news is that it makes a fabulous accent when mixed with neutrals.

Baby pink with a touch of lavender, this girly shade is easy to fall in love with.

Speaking about lavender, light lavender is also trending. It comes as a charming successor to the not-so-loved Ultra Violet of 2018.
The comeback of the ‘70s colour schemes brings orange – a bit of an unusual choice for springtime.
Perhaps it’s just us, but we find this particular shade of orange to be more suitable for Autumn, but hey! we are not ones to refuse such a gorgeous hue! It pairs beautifully with reds, greens white, and corals.
This spicy, almost orange shade is impossible to miss! Also, it makes a lovely pair with other retro shades such as reds, browns and blues.
Of course, Pantone Colour of the Year 2019 made it to the list as well. We already covered this provocative shade so don’t forget to take a peek at our blog post Pantone Colour of 2019: Pretty in (Coral) Pink.
Red is back too!
As its name suggests, Fiesta is all about fun, passion and energy. It’s very dynamic and fiery.

Deep red with a touch of burgundy, rich Jester Red is the symbol of tradition that meets urbanity.
Greens are also more earthy and saturated than they used to be.
Vibrant Pepper Stem brings Nature into our homes. It speaks about health and renewal.
Similar to Pepper Stem but this time darker and deeper, Terrarium Moss comes from the depths of the forest and carries flourishing foliage.
This year’s colour trends bring three completely different shades of blue.
Baby blue is no longer about baby boys’ nurseries. It carries fresh air of optimism and evokes a feeling of calm and happiness. Think about it as a lovechild of blue skies and high seas.

This majestic blue tone is daring and luxurious. It glows under the spotlight but doesn’t really need them to prove its royalness.
Eclipse is almost black, but still very much blue. It is mysterious like a shadow or a midnight sky.
Ever since we lost greys, we’ve got browns!
Sophisticated and elegant, this warm brown is still so warm and delicious.
One of the classics, Brown Granite is strong, understated and timeless.

And to end the list – the most loved neutrals.
Sweet Corn is one of those forever in style colours and is bound to sneak even into the most minimalist homes.
An older, more sophisticated brother of Sweet Corn, Soy Bean is also one of the most versatile neutrals.
Which one is your favourite?
