As another year of inspirational interiors ends, thoughts turn to the design trends that will dominate our decorating in 2017. The next season’s hottest shade of dusty pink should be paired with neutral tones such as marble and timber, or with metallics such as copper. Metals are really a key trend this season, as are raw timbers and rattan. These natural textures are all about getting back to basics and then adding accents to layer your space. Rose gold, also known as pink gold and red gold, was popular in Russia at the beginning of the nineteenth century Although the names are often used interchangeably, the difference between red, rose, and pink gold is the copper content, the higher the copper the redder the appearance. Subtler than traditional copper, rose gold is a daintier version of classic gold and especially enhances feminine interiors. It plays particularly well with some of the softer neutrals, especially those that tend toward warmer tones such as a pinkish beige or a soft dove gray. However, when paired with chocolate brown and dark leather the contrast will prevent the rose gold from seeming too dainty.
