Skyscapes: Colour Trends Autumn Winter 2017

Skyscapes is a quiet but assured colour trend that demonstrates how light and inky blues can be used together to create a pared-back tonal finish. Add subtle touches of shadow and cloudiness to the all-blue palette by using a feathered paint effect to separate two tones, or by bringing grey and white accents as a gentle contrast.

Offering a fresh take on how we use blue in the home, Skyscapes conjures up the tranquillity of the natural landscape. 
 
The trend teams layers of watery and sky blues, with darker, cloudy shades to form a calm and reflective palette that illustrates just how versatile blue can be. 
 
Sophisticated grey and chalky neutrals offer a subtle nod to clouds, mist and rocks. Warm wood furniture complements the palette and gives it a smart, contemporary edge.
 
 
The Look
 
For a calm and reflective space, layer tones of blue in your home with watery and sky blues combined with darker, cloudy shades to give a cool finish. Textures from the natural landscape will add warmth so why not try upcycling some old wooden furniture to add a personal touch.
