Every year some of the industries leading experts in colour release their ‘Colour of the year’. This is a colour they believe will be dominate in interior trends for the following year. Different companies release their colours at different times so not all for 2019 have been announced yet. I have complied some of the colours that have already been announced, so you can be ahead of the game on next years trends.
- PPG Paints: Night Watch
This is a rich, luxurious shade of green.
It works great as an accent wall in a living space or bedroom.
“Night Watch is about bringing the healing power from the outdoors into your home through color. The dark green hue pulls our memories of natural environments to the surface to recreate the calming, invigorating euphoria we feel when in nature.”
Dee Schlotter, PPG Senior Colour Marketing Manager
2. Dulux: Spiced Honey
Spiced Honey blends rich caramel and inviting amber tones.
It is perfect for a warm neutral colour palette.
“It can be both calming and nourishing or stimulating and energising, depending on the palettes and light surrounding it, The contemporary hue is versatile, sophisticated and timeless and lends itself to a broad spectrum of life and interior styles – perfect for reflecting the universal mood encapsulated by the panel.”
Heleen van Gent, Head of the Global Aesthetic Centre, who chairs the ColourFutures™ panel
3. Graham & Brown: Tiru
Tiru is a bold, glamourous teal shade.
This colour will look great as a feature wall colour for that bold statement in a space. It will also be great being introduced through soft furnishings and upholstery.
“Tiru is inspired by the Kabuki trend. (A classical Japanese drama-dance, which showcases a bold, avant-garde colour palette). Taken from the backdrop of the Tori teal wallpaper, Tiru is a serene metallic teal paint.”

4. Sherwin-Williams: Cavern Clay
This is a warm and inviting terracotta colour.
It works best when paired with other neutral colours such as a warm grey or off white.
“Cavern Clay. A warm terracotta color with ancient, elemental roots, Cavern Clay is a nod to midcentury modern style, but with the soul of the American Southwest, which together creates the desert modern aesthetic.”
Sherwin – Williams
5. BEHR- Blueprint S470-5
Blueprint S470-5 is a really soothing blue colour with slight green undertones.
It is a really versatile and easy to use colour and has a calming effect on an interior.
“a refined blue with just the right amount of depth and brightness.”
Erika Woelfel – BEHR Colour Expert
