Reflecting the eclectic nature of contemporary interiors, the latest Haymes Paint colour forecast is a real mixed bag, but in the best way possible. From earthy tones to moody jewel tones and primary colours, the latest collection (Volume 10) is organised into three themes and is anything but dull.
“Volume 10 is our most diverse collection yet, with the introduction of texture to The Colour Library. All three themes feature some tactile new colours and texture from our Artisan Range, which launched late last year,” says Wendy Rennie, colour and concept manager at Haymes Paint.
“A one size fits all attitude is no longer applicable in a modern, multi-cultural society. We wanted Volume 10 to feature contrasting palettes and textures to highlight the different ways that we as individuals navigate our daily lives,” says Wendy.
The most subdued of the three themes, Unearthed is inspired by rural Australian landscapes and, more specifically, the earth under our feet. Mud, soil and bark were the organic inspiration behind this soothing mix of hues that includes warm charcoal, tan, rich red and rust tones.
The moodiest of the three palettes, Verge is the perfect fit for the forthcoming cooler months with its sumptuous, dark hues. Berry, plum, teal and midnight make for a sultry mix that is all about calm.
Urban inspired, Streetscape features a muted take on primary colours with coral, mustard, bright blue and aqua the stars. Haymes Paint looked to the streets and laneways of our larger cities for inspiration with this palette that is designed to capture the energy of inner city, multicultural life.
