You may not yet care what the trends are for autumn/winter 2015/2016, especially if you are anxiously awaiting temperatures to reach positive double digits and snow to melt. But in case you like to pre-plan, or perhaps just know what’s forecast for later in the year, let your eyes feast away on the coming patterns, prints, and colours.

Let’s start with colour, which looks to be both bold and bright, tempered by a number of earthy metallics.

Fear not, the world is not about to be overtaken by purples and berry tones, despite its prominence on some of the moodboards. While there is no denying their presence, plenty of prints and patterns are outside those palettes.

Keep in mind when you are looking at the prints that they extend beyond interiors. You may prefer to use smaller, more densely printed textiles for accent pieces. It is also highly probable that you will find larger scale variations of the top prints for things such as upholstery.

s/s15 colour trends from crown paints

British brand Crown Paints has unveiled its spring/summer 2015 colour stories.

“Colour always escapes our attempts to contain it in theory or design,” he stated. “We actually only have 11 basic words in English to use for colour, and we use simple variants of them to characterise and visualise the 10 million colour variations our eyes can perceive.” ~ David Batchelor, artist and author

Spring Summer 2015 Forecasts from Crown Paints

The following palette descriptions are provided by Crown Paints colour specialist, Jemma Saunders, who is also a member of the Colour Influences panel.

Playtime

Playtime’ offers soft chalky candy colours and cutting edge grey shades that contrast against a back drop of industrial surfaces, such as concrete, steel and brick.

Crown Paints: Playtime

“This palette alone is perfect for creating gentle spaces with an upmarket feel such as waiting rooms, apartment blocks and healthcare interiors.

“Muted shades are calming yet contemporary, and creamy lemons, mint greens and coral pinks add warmth and create an inviting interior. It enables spaces to appear light and airy and the warmer tones counteract cool grey skies.

Organic Discovery

‘Organic Discovery’ is a refreshing choice made up of cool blues and harmonious greens, with highlights of chartreuse to add a little zest.

Crown Paints: Organic Discovery

“Its concept is based on vivid saturated greens rather than natural organic tones, accented with colourful graphic printed textiles.

“This is a versatile palette and can meet different requirements. For example, to open a space, the off white or paler blue shade can be teamed with a deeper shade for interest.

“To create a calming environment or in an area of study/work, the cooler shades of blues/greens can be used alone or with the neutral base colour Sidewalk, while a more dramatic and energetic interior can be created with saturated green or the use of lots of zesty chartreuse.”

Freedom of Expression

Freedom of Expression’ is a vibrant collection made up of saturated hues and base colours of calmer neutrals.

“Floors expand rooms: They insulate them acoustically; they make them softer and characterize them by virtue of their large, designable surfaces. I have no doubt that new conceptual approaches and material compositions can trigger a revolution in floor design.”

~Ross Lovegrove, London, Industrial Designer and exhibition talk-show guest

Colour forecast for 2016.
