All eyes were set on the most recent Maison et Objet. Exhibiting only the best in interior design and architecture, the magnificent creations and trends on display were certainly a sight to behold. With the best architects, interior designers and design houses all gathered under one roof, Maison et Objet is the centre for all of the latest interior design trends.
The most recent Maison et Objet was held from the 6th to the 10th of September. Read on to learn about our four favourite colour trends from the event, and how to incorporate them into your interior.
Warm and vibrant, we’re obsessed with the rich shades of terracotta and orange that were beautifully showcased at Maison et Objet. Evocative of warm climates and rich spices, it is certain to keep you toasty as we move on to the winter months. Perfect for creating an inviting atmosphere, Burnt Orange is particularly ideal for spaces like dining rooms and living rooms. Combine with leather for a mid-century modern touch, or pair with neutral tones for a dramatic focal point.
Despite its feminine and romantic qualities, Blush Pink is surprisingly versatile. Carrying a calming effect, it is the ideal choice for spaces such as living rooms and bedrooms, where all you want to do is relax after a long day. When paired with neutral tones, it adds a classic, elegant touch, but can also be worked seamlessly into contemporary interiors when styled with dark shades like navy blue.
Moving away from the usual grey and beige tones, Maison et Objet championed the use of oatmeal and linen shades as their new neutrals of choice. Evocative of our new, eco-conscious society, the natural shades are simple, yet effective. When combined with wood and ceramics, they create the perfect, country-feel.
A surprising trend witnessed at Maison et Objet was a new approach to colour. Straying away from the typical complementary and contrasting combinations, tonal rooms were on the rise. Different shades of the same colour layered on top of one another results in an evocative and stimulating play on the senses. Easily applied to both classical and contemporary interiors, the result is incredibly chic. Play with colour theory to get the most of this trend; cool blues will transform your bedroom into a relaxing abode, yellow tones will make your entryway instantly inviting and uplifting. Experiment with this trend and see what you can do!
