2016 Interior Design Colour Trend- Berry

Posted on Apr 6, 2016 by

Berry makes a strong colour statement in any space. It can be used in contrast to brighten neutrals and paired with a spectrum of soft shades to great effect. In an industrial conversion, characterised by exposed brickwork, concrete or wooden beams, berry brings a warm and striking injection of colour. Used in the right way, it can transform any home into a welcoming abode. But, as with all aspects of interior design, it’s the details that count. And it’s no different where colour is concerned. If you’re feeling apprehensive about adding rich colour, try starting on a smaller scale and building from there.

Berry has connotations of richness and luxury, that are exemplified perfectly in this gorgeous vintage seating from Original House. Featuring velvet upholstery and a natural patina on the legs, these 1950s Italian Cocktail Chairs will make a unique addition to your home and are an easy way to channel this colour trend.

The easiest way to add colour to a space is on the walls. But you needn’t repaint them. Why not just add colourful decorative details?  This Betty Tweed Clock by designer Andy Murray combines a walnut frame with a beautiful textured tweed face.
