Heidi Albertiri is the talented founder, editor and stylist behind The Life Style Edit and joins a group of industry professionals, to host Conversation Series, taking place as part of the Life Instyle Sydney event 21-24 February 2019 at The Royal Hall of Industries and Hordern Pavilion. Here, Heidi shares some of her colour predictions for 2019:
Colour 2019. The world around us is changing at a super-fast pace, so it’s no surprise that the colour trends we are expecting to see in 2019 are largely designed to assist us in slowing down and reconnecting to both ourselves and our spaces. The connection between the demands of home and work life is more important than ever and something which industry leaders have taken into consideration. Many designers are using particular colours to help create a sense of simplicity and calmness for our home renovation to relieve the increasing pressures that many feel at work. This includes creating a strong connection to natural landscapes. Colours set to have a strong presence in 2019 have been determined to disconnect us from digital screens and busy-ness; essentially connecting us with more authentic, grounded experiences.
Greenery. For 2019 green is still ever present, be it through plants, paint or soft furnishings – forest green is nurturing, calm and grounding. Found in varying palettes across the board, green can be paired strongly with ground hues of the Australian landscape, such as ochre, rusts, cinnamons and sandy tones, which will continue to be reflected in the hues of 2019. A great way to add greenery to your home is through artwork. With McMurtrie Illustrations’ bold colours, artwork can add both greenery and pink florals to any setting. Exhibiting at Life Instyle, McMurtrie Illustrations fits perfectly with two major trends of 2019.
Blush obsession. The obsession with blush continues. However changes to this hue will come into play with dusty blushes and rosy neutrals. With a yearning to create peaceful zones after a home renovation we are searching out these softs blush tones to help us wind down. Paired with grey, greens and creams, these understated tones also add a simplicity that is timeless. An easy way to please your blush obsession is with Fleuressence which creates beautiful imagery from freezing flowers and capturing the pinky tones in blocks of ice. Their stunning photographs are perfect for adding a range of dusty blushes and rosy neutrals to your walls, without overdoing it. Fleuressence is showcasing a range of products at Life Instyle Sydney in February.
Living Coral. To spice things up, Pantone’s colour for 2019 is Living Coral. Vibrant yet mellow, Living Coral embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment. The colour of coral is social and spirited to encourage light-heartened activity. Symbolising our innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits when work acts as such a heavy load for many, Living Coral gives way for some good old-fashioned fun.
