With spring on the horizon, we're looking at the future colour trends that will give your interiors a stylish update, as well as complementing the warmer, balmy months. This season we wave goodbye to floral tones and bold colours and welcome sultry greys, sunbaked shades, crisp whites, and earthy greens.  

Colour experts and Good Homes' sponsor of our roomsets at Ideal Home Show, Crown Paints, have recently unveiled their top four colour trends for SS19. These refreshing designs challenge you mix and match colour, allow you to embrace nature, and think more creatively about your interior schemes.

Judy Smith, Crown Colour Consultant says,"spring shades such as cool yellows, calming greys and muted blues bring in a touch of warmth and optimism, A pale colour palette of soft chalky tones will relfect all available sunlight, bringing light and a sense of calm into your home".

Read on to find out more from Crown's trend panel experts about the innovative colour trends that we will be referring to when we style our roomsets at this year's Ideal Home Show.
