The Love List: 2015 colour trends

New Year, New you, New home, right?

Well maybe that’s a bit far but why not spruce up your “so 2014″ decor and jump on the 2015 trend wagon. I came across a delightful article by about their predictions of the must have colour schemes this year and below I have put together my top 3 loves.

1. Mediterranean Blue

Santorini, Greece


Blue tends to be a very calming, tranquile colour and surely that is exactly how everyone wants to start off their new year. This particular Mediterranean shade is a gorgeous splash of bold colour that looks fresh and exciting in any room. Blue 2066-10 Benjamin Moore is a great paint for this scheme.

2. Neutral Grey


Neutral Grey


Neutral and soft greys have been popular for a couple of years now and I really believe that they are here for the long haul. It’s a great base colour that so many other colours, patterns and textures work beautifully with. Pairing it with other neutrals like creams, whites or even varying shades of grey gives a scheme a soft and fresh feel. This French Grey Mid (162) from Little Greene is the perfect neutral grey.

3. Olive Green


Olive Green

Farrow olive

I would most definitely never class myself as a green fan. I try to use it as little as possible, I’m not too sure why I dislike it so much but I just know that it doesn’t tend to work for me. This shade however is very easy on the eye, organic and rich and I am totally in love with it. Farrow & Ball’s Olive No. 13 would work wonderfully.
