Colour trends for 2012, straight from the Milan Furniture Fair

Pin It
If you have ever wonder where the trends in Interior Design originate, the answer is from the Milan Furniture Fair. This annual event is the design world’s answer to Paris fashion week! 

Although some people might be put off by the fact that a fair somewhere in Milan directs the way the entire world decorates. Others might be fairly relieved to know that they have a ready-made colour scheme to pick from. It certainly helps to avoid the agony of indecision - spending hours with colour palettes and not knowing which colours to choose. So if you belong to the latter category here are the hot colours for your home for 2012. Now you can go ahead and decorate without any stress. Just don’t forget to thank me for letting you in on the secret!

So what trends are emanating from this year’s Salone Internazionale del Mobile? The dominant colour this year has to be Blue - Aqua, Cobalt, Sky and Retro hues of the colour are everywhere. You would be bang on trend if you have a sleek Cobalt couch in your living room or you could go by the book and pick up a bright blue armchair for your study.
Blue also gets combined with Mint, Yellow and Orange in a hark back to retro trends.
Orange and Yellow seem to be the accent colours this season. You would do well to pick up your accessories in these two colours. Take inspiration from the way these shades are used to create gorgeous pops of colour.

Blue seems to be everywhere as it gets combined with Pink and lavender in an interesting albeit feminine combination.

Purples, Pinks and Lilacs are also quite prominent.
