  • autumn colours

    As we move into the autumn months, our colour palette becomes inspired by earthy browns, multi-coloured leaves and beautiful oranges and pinks.

    Volume 8 of Haymes Colour Library, ‘The Colour Forecast’ highlights these autumn colours, and can help guide us towards creating the ultimate autumn-inspired look for our homes.

    The Colour Forecast is broken into three themes:


    STARK BEAUTY

    A finely crafted approach to interiors that blends together a soft minimalism with an almost Japanese aesthetic and sensibility. The colours are simple parings of subtle whites and bold leafy greens providing a palette that is both fresh and balanced. This palette encourages spaces that blur the lines between both inside and out, where there is no need for divides but an overall aesthetic that unifies spaces and creates both harmony and positivity within interiors and exteriors. It’s an ethos of sophisticated design that brings only the essentials into the home, cultivating spaces that are easy to live in.

    STRATA

    A rich and earthy palette that mimics the colours found in the layers of the earth. The diversity of the colours is reminiscent of those variations found in the environment we live in. It features gorgeous tans and browns, paired with lush deep greens found in fauna and plant life, reflects the deep blue of the sea and is complemented by neutral base colours. The introduction to interiors of such a raw natural aesthetic adds a quality of “true grit” and a sense of realness and humbleness to the palette, in turn encouraging us to create interiors that feel both natural and secure. This palette can be used in various combinations to really bring the colours of the landscape to life.

    PITCH DARK

    An undefinable palette that challenges the senses and plays on the idea of finding dark spaces more relaxing, meditative and exploratory which in the past has been associated with light colours. It’s a new way forward for interiors and the use of strong colours like blacks and dark charcoals, combined with rich reds, moody nudes and deep blue is a palette that is coming into its own. As we start to learn that we can use the power we gain by unlocking the unknown, we start to understand that to explore and discover the new, is both liberating and empowering.
