The leading paint supplier recently announced its colour trend predications for 2012-2013, and in line with current fashion and design trends, it is signalling a shift into brighter, bolder colours for Australian interiors.

The trend predication towards bright and bold is one backed by leading Melbourne house painters, Valdemar’s Painters. Bright blue, in particular, has been high on the fashion radar in recent times and according to Valdemar’s Eva Gluchowski it is now making its debut in more and more Melbourne living rooms.

“As fashion colours have become increasingly bolder, we’ve noticed a corresponding trend in painting requests for brighter interiors.

“While some people might remain sceptical, the effect of bright bold colours within interior living spaces can be transformational. Bold colours create living spaces that are truly unique. With bold blues for instance, run-of-the-mill living rooms are transformed into fresh and energising spaces,” she said.

“Alternatively, introducing citrus colours of green or yellow can create in any living space an immediate feeling of calm and tranquillity.

According to most experts, the key to success in introducing bright colours to interior walls is finding balance in contrasting furnishings. Combining bright walls with soft furnishings and accessories in creams, whites and beiges ensure the colour provides its intended effect without overwhelming.

But while the trend towards more adventurous interiors seems set to continue for some time yet, according to Ms Gluchowski, the popularity of the more traditional earthy tones remains strong. A claim echoed by Dulux, who have tipped ‘time-honoured’ tones of reds and browns to remain enduringly popular into 2013.

“While these paint choices might be labelled conservative choices, the fact remains they are popular for a reason. These earthy tones provide a beautiful warmth to any room without the risk of overly dominating.

“While some paint trends tend to come and go with fashion, we expect earthy tones to remain a classic choice that will continue in popularity for many years to come.

“At the end of the day, whether bright or earthy, as painters in Melbourne with many years experience we happily work with our clients to achieve the interior look their heart desires,” she said.

Valdemar’s Painters is a Melbourne based house-painting firm committed to high quality interior and exterior house painting at affordable prices. Their house painters use only premium quality, environmentally friendly paints on all their projects.
