Design Prognosis: 5 Colour Trends that will dominate the Walls in 2018
Home is a place where you come back from a long, tiring day, and take a sigh of relief. There is no place like your home to wind down and shut off from the world. A familiar ambience together with a comfortable and soothing environment make you feel “happy”, but synchronised interiors and peaceful colours can significantly boost your vigour. Unlike Fashion Trends that are ever-changing, Interior Trends stick around for a long time. Many people opt not to change the outlook of their place seasonally that is why choosing colours and interiors requires careful thought and analysis.
It’s no secret that colours play an important role and have a huge impact on the mood. People prefer using soothing tones on their walls to lighten up the area and spread positivity around them.
