Pink and Copper

This has been a popular trend over the last year or so and it won’t be going soon with Pantone’s announcement of Rose Quartz being the colour of the year for 2016. Copper homewares are still trending on the homewares front. If you want to choose something a little different, purchase copper furniture to match in with your pink sofa.


By far the most popular colour duo for fashion and interiors. Black and white living rooms can look chic and offer a modern interior to entertain and chill out in.

Green and Orange

This trend is definitely not one for the faint hearted. Choose deep greens and bright orange to make a visual impact for the living space. If you love surprises in your interiors, this colour scheme is the one for you.

Navy and Teal

This is a moody duo that works well in big spaces. Darker walls can make a room look smaller. Despite the moodiness of the room, the navy and teal create a rich and indulgent living space.

Brown and Grey

An alternative to neutrals, brown and grey can create a calming space that is on trend and tranquil. This colour duo is the perfect base for a coastal or tribal style interior.

If you want to avoid trends, but sill like the duo colour concept, look at a colour wheel. For a calm space, choose two colours that are side by side on the wheel. For a high-impact look, choose two colours that are opposite each other on the wheel.
