With the year coming to a close, we’ve started looking ahead at trend forecasts for 2020, and we spoke to our friends at Haymes about which colour palettes are gaining popularity and giving homes a contemporary, yet effortlessly timeless look. Their new Calibrate Colour Library explores and embraces change in a positive way by helping to inform design approaches to enable us to create thoughtful spaces that emotionally connect us within the home.

This collection explores our powerful connection to nature, bringing it to the forefront of interior spaces by referencing colours of nature. Green is a colour that bridges and connects us to our surroundings, helping us find balance during our daily lives. With earthy tones of green that echo back to the ocean, vegetation, as well as fresh mint tones, and complementary pinks, neutral brown and taupe shades, Equilibrium places the different accents together in a way that feels calm, refreshing and effortless, showing how different colours can live together seamlessly.

Inspired by the ocean, exploring its grand beauty and depth, the Positive Light collection explores the idea of the power found in the force of nature, represented by vibrant and deep blue tones, as well as its fragility in lighter shades. Blue is a timeless classic in the home, with darker hues becoming increasingly popular as a feature colour inside the home in recent years. This collection highlights the calming effect blue has in the home with an emphasis on subtle vibrancy of bolder shades as a feature colour.

Home Grown

This collection offers a style that allows you to embrace comfort. Neutrals offer a shift to a beautiful soft range of browns with red undertones. These soothing colours provide an embracing comfort and harmony within the home. Including these soft, understated colours encourages us to look inwards and towards our homes as a place of sanctuary and refuge. Incorporating the ideas of the adage ‘the home is where the heart is,’ the Home Grown collection has an earthy feel that exudes warmth. Perfect for shared spaces, these neutrals will project a relaxed style and inspire a seamless flow between spaces.

Haymes’ Calibrate collection encourages us to stop and smell the roses, while also offering practical solutions in design that will revitalize our desire to incorporate design decisions that look and feel good for homeowners, while still connecting us to nature.
