“For me, as a designer, there’s almost a fatigue around neutrals because they can often create very flat spaces,” says Amanda Lwanga, owner and creative director at Linger Design Studio in Edmonton. “I love the idea that people are starting to introduce rich, juicy colors to jewelry tones to create more interesting pieces with more depth. Lwanga experimented with bolder colors, like Benjamin Moore’s Dark Harbor CSP-720 or Sherwin-Williams Red Bay 6321 in his clients’ homes.
Spending more time at home also meant changing our accent colors. After years of house accents dominating brass and gold, Amanda Hamilton, Founder and Creative Director of Amanda Hamilton Interior Design and Palette Archives in Calgary, predicts that “we’ll see more polished chrome and pewter returning to the fashion “. But don’t worry if there are a lot of items in your house that are golden. “Mixing metals is always a huge trend for us,” Hamilton shares. Add some dimension to your space by mixing and pairing appliances with different hardware stores in a kitchen or softening a room with textured materials like sheepskin and curly.
