Colour Trends for 2016 A Sneak Peek

Colour Trends for 2016: A Sneak Peek

Paul James Blinds pride ourselves on stocking blinds completely on-trend with the latest colour schemes and themes, and it is with this in mind that we bring you a sneak peek of 2016’s colour trends within interior design.

The 2016 colour trends show varying exciting palettes predicted to create stimulating environments within our homes.

The Neutrals


No matter the trend or the season, neutral colours are needed to provide the basic backdrop to your decor – but that doesn’t mean we’re stuck with boring whites! This year lilac greys, soft olive greens and pale browns look set to be a huge feature, bringing a richer intensity to our homes and creating a cosy environment to relax in.



Panatone’s colour of the year sees a blending of two colours for the first time, both beautiful shades of soft pastel: Rose Quartz and Serenity. The soft blending of a rose pink and light blue shade creates a perfect soothing balance that aims to bring a feeling of peaceful mindfulness into the home.



Navy blues and light aqua shades are used to create a cool and crisp environment to help bring you clarity and focus. This modern colouring is best suited to block colouring, minimal design and smooth lines to keep the decor looking sharp. A white wooden blind or plantation shutter would be the perfect accompaniment to this trend, providing a clean and neutral finish to the room that brings brightness and a sense of freshness often associated with the ocean.

Brilliant Hues


Later this year expect to see electric yellows, powerful reds and bright greens in the home, bringing the excitement, confidence and happiness of summer into your interior in bursts of colour that work strikingly well against the dark and earthy neutral colour scheme predicted for the year. To avoid this trend overpowering your decor, opt for key focus pieces that bring the look together, such as the odd cushion or soft furnishing, or a block-coloured roller blind for a bold splash of colour.

An Exciting Year Ahead

Whether you’re opting for the serene and calming pastel palette or are drawn to the deep earthy neutral tones, this year’s colour trends look set to completely rejuvenate our homes. The team here at Paul James Blinds are excited to work with such vivid and beautiful colours and are looking forward to seeing these trends unfold throughout the year.
