2019’s hottest colour trends
According to some sectors of psychology, your home’s colour scheme can have a direct effect on your subconscious. Most of us have heard that blue is calming, but did you know that babies are most likely to cry when surrounded by yellow? (Explains the turbulent emotional state of that Tellytubbies sun baby). Whether you believe in the personality altering effects of your colour palette or not, one thing’s for certain – 2019’s hottest colours are absolute knockouts and will have your home looking chic and contemporary in no time! Check out five fabulous shades that are taking this season by storm.
Our Bluebell chaise armchair in Butterscotch cotton matt velvet
Synonymous with sunshine and praised for its optimistic qualities when styling an interior, yellow has been a go-to hue for many seasons. When it comes to using yellow in 2019, it’s all about burnt tones. Bridging the gap between bright and sophisticated, burnt yellow is a beautifully warm colour that will spark joy in your home during the summer months while transitioning nicely into winter thanks to its subtle warmth. Sofa.com’s resident burnt yellow is our Butterscotch cotton matt velvet (every bit as delicious as it sounds) which works wonderfully on accent pieces such as our Bluebell chaise armchair as seen here.

Our Harper 2.5 seat sofa in Deep Turquoise cotton matt velvet
One of life’s most pressing mysteries is whether turquoise is, in actual fact, a bluey green or a greeny blue… While we can’t answer that conundrum for you, we can say with some authority that this shade is going from strength to strength in the world of interior design. Praised for its peaceful hues, deep turquoise is a wonderful choice when looking to create an interior with some upmarket edge. The rich finish of our fabulous Deep Turquoise cotton matt velvet will keep your space looking chic in any season, with the blue notes speaking to an opulent winter and green notes, to a sophisticated spring.
This season’s penchant for optimistic hues is perhaps most noticeable in the growing popularity of pastels. These soft, sweet shades are a must-have for the modern living space, with interior designers praising their smile-inducing tones and versatility when styling. The term ‘good enough to eat’ is bandied about pretty freely nowadays but couldn’t be more accurate when describing our stunning range of pastel smart velvets. Light, luxe and refreshingly fuss-free, these fabrics allow you to wipe away any spillages before they have time to set in.
Our Monroe loveseat in Orchid cotton matt velvet
Blush tones have been making waves for months now and their popularity shows no signs of slowing down!
