In 2023, minimalism continues to move beyond function and become more expressive through accents. Some experts in more radical forecasts even suggest that minimalism may be replaced by maximalism – and it is characterized by eccentricity in various manifestations.
The desire to make the interior brighter is reflected, among other things, in the choice of color solutions – even in calm spaces, bold combinations of several colors are increasingly used to enliven the atmosphere. Observation can help you choose beautifully contrasting shades, but it will still be quite difficult to decide on their tone: if you are not a professional colorist, it is easy to get lost in the color spectrum.
To make life easier for connoisseurs of expressive design, the Danish paint brand Flugger has developed a color map of ready-made combinations, in which all combinations look spectacular and advantageous. The palette contains 18 harmonies, each of which includes 4 shades: in one room you can use a pair, a triple, or all at once.
Another trend of recent years is associated with the desire to use natural eco-friendly materials, which entails a fashion for natural shades. In 2023, they may become more saturated, but the essence remains the same: in the trend of earth colors, clay, herbs, and spices.
In each of the 18 harmonies of the Flugger palette, there are just such shades that are responsible for creating a warm atmosphere in the house. Herbaceous Harmonic Green and Relaxing Green, terracotta Energetic Red, sandy Wise Yellow, and limestone Soothing Beige – all of them will help create an aesthetic background for furniture and decor made of natural stone, wood, and rattan.
Today, design should be aimed at the emotional involvement of a particular interior owner. The global trend is considered to be the rejection of trends: we strive to equip artistic interiors that reflect our individuality and personal philosophy.
When designing a space without regard to strict rules, it is important to listen to yourself, because at home, first of all, you should be comfortable. This applies to stylistics, ergonomics, and, in particular, to the color scheme: it is no coincidence that the concept of color therapy exists in the design industry.
Flugger, together with specialists from the PEJ Group, analyzed the effect of color on a person and divided his palette into four groups. Their names – POSITIVE, CALMING, PERFORMANCE, and REFLECTIVE – refer to the feelings they evoke. This means that when creating an interior, you will be able to focus on your character traits (or emotions that you lack).
