Bringing the outdoors inside

A key trend for late 2019 and 2020 is bringing the ‘outdoors in’, from bringing in Palms and cacti or exotic plants indoors, to hues of green across all furnishings. Mouldings to match this trend include ACADEMY in Oliveor Sea Green, PORTOBELLO in Bright Green and HAVANA in Worn Green.
 
Neutrals and Naturals

A move towards warm, rustic neutrals and away from grey tones will be a trend in 2020 according to ‘Ideal Home’. Try HARPER in Camel, DRIFTWOOD in Distressed Whitewash, ST IVES in White or RATTAN in White to perfectly compliment this look.
 
 
Dark and Stormy

Autumn/Winter 2019 will see the emergence of dark, rich colours such as teal, dark grey or even coffee according to ‘Bricks and Mortar’ in the Times. “To achieve the look, pair dark furniture in geometric shaped with rich colours in fabrics and on walls”. Mouldings to compliment this look: ACADEMY – Dark purple, MINERALE – Azurite and OXIDE – Verdigris.
 
Pantone Colours for  2019 & 2020

Pantone announced their colour of 2020 as ‘Neo Mint’, another bold choice alongside 2019’s ‘Living Coral’, both colours are already popular with interior and fashion influencers. If your clients are after eyecatching mouldings to pick up on either trend, look no further than HAVANA in Worn Red or MOD in Mint.
