If you haven’t yet heard, colour is back in a big way! Although whites, greys and neutrals will always have a place in contemporary building design, colour is making its way into the home. Whether you are in the initial planning stages of your new home build here on the Sunshine Coast, or you have nearly completed your custom home build and are wanting to put the finishing touches throughout your interior scheme, be bold and embrace colour to turn your house into a home! Let’s take a look at some popular colours and how you can incorporate them into your new home build with Eco Homes Australia.
With the houseplant craze continuing to dominate, green is the colour of the moment. Global Colour Forecaster Pantone named it Colour of the Year in 2017, and we are still seeing lots of green shades throughout the home to complement our lush, Jungalow-inspired settings. Be bold and use deep, lush greens like teal and emerald in a feature wall to make a statement. Lighter, fresher greens like mint, apple and seafoam paired with white and natural timbers will create a relaxed, Coastal feel, the perfect backdrop for our Sunshine Coast lifestyle. Mimic your indoor houseplants with botanical patterns throughout soft furnishings like cushions and throws.

You might remember that Blush or ”Millennial Pink” was THE colour of 2016- every Kmart across the nation had a pink and grey obsession. Blush pink and softer, peachy hues are still big, as they compliment a grey, timber or white interior. Deeper salmony pinks and terracottas are also set to become more popular, as they add rustic appeal, personalty and intense warmth. Balance any pink in a room with blue, or get your glam on and pair it with Jungle green and gold a la the Beverly Hills Hotel.
Once an iconic colour of the 1970’s, yellow is enjoying a revival. The perfect complement for Pantone’s Colour Of The Year 2018- Ultra Violet, yellow can be paired with most bold colours, and variations include mustard, marigold, citrus and gold. Yellow is often best executed when left as an accent or burst of colour, either on a piece of furniture or soft furnishings. For a pop of Palm Springs glamour, include yellow via your front door.
Blue is cool, contemporary and works well with a Hampton’s aesthetic. Fresh, mid-tone blues, inky navys or pastel blues are all popular blues. Mix blue with green for a tropical, Jungle feel or pair it with pink for a balanced, modern take. Blue and white is always a classic, fresh look too and works well with our Coastal climate.
