Milan Design Week 2018: Colour and Design Trends

Milan comes alive every 2 years to showcase the latest colour and design trends. Milan is the drawcard for designers all over the world.

The trend colours at the Milan fair this year were a mix of pastel colours. Grey greens and lobster pink contrasted with black, beige, and copper were dominant.

Although the Australian lifestyle is very different to Europe, the trend colours do flow into our colour palette. These colours pop up everywhere in hard and soft furnishings wall colours and bathroom tiles.

This year was no exception. I walked the aisles of joinery displaying layered textual elements on the outside and beautifully compartmentalised to house everything – from kitchen utensils to neatly assembled shelving units carving up space to house jumpers, T shirts, bags, and shoes.

Lighting played an important part inside the joinery to light up everything when the drawer opened and magically switched itself off when it closed.
