House paint colour trends in Australia, in fact across the globe, are very much focused on autumn tones in 2018. The purity of a leafy green and earthy beige colour palette provide a sense of soothing comfort, allowing us to relax and unwind after a day of digital connectivity.

Inspired by nature, the revival of green is strong and will be seen in a range of shades throughout Australian interior design over the year. Creating calm in our chaotic modern lifestyles, green represents organic harmony, safety, health and wealth. Paired with raw timbers, soft natural linens and textured imperfections (such as interior rendering or suede look paint), this paint colour trend will have your friends green with envy. We love: Mermaid Waters by Wattyl.

Soft, subtle pastels are also popular, with peach and rose pinks adding a delicate touch of serene femininity to our homes in 2018. This light and airy colour palette creates an elegant minimalist style and is a great technique to generate an illusion of space to a refined room. Try: Lily Legs Quarter by Dulux.

Rather something bright and bold? Create drama in your home with the latest interior trend of paint colour blocking. Terracotta (Try: Delta Clay from Taubmans) and bright blues are the go-to colours in this craze, where the wall is zoned by colour. This daring, 60’s mod fashion inspired, paint trend has many variations. It can be designed horizontally or vertically and can be one colour against the home’s standard wall colour, or two softer colour shades together. Wall paint colour blocking can be side by side or overlapping colours. Be adventurous; bring individuality and your own sense of style to your home. Tip: Give colour blocking a modern touch and extra pop, by teaming it up with black tapware, furnishings, and accessories.
