Deep, Retro Colours Trending in New Zealand Homes

The colour palette of your walls plays an important role in making an impression of either your home or workplace. Whilst white and cream coloured paint will always be firm favourite for both residential and commercial establishments, Wellington painters are seeing deep, moody colours and retro chic as the trend for 2016.

Many Kiwis are choosing bolder, deeper colours, experimenting with splashes of dark paint on their walls and ceilings, which haerken back to the olive greens and rose reds of the Victorian era. Colours like cobalt blue and royal purple are often contrasted with flashes of pink, coral, and silver, to balance out the dark colour palette.

Retro shades inspired by the 60s and 70s are also gaining popularity. Homeowners are using coordinating shades of brown and caramel, with pops of bright reds, greens, orange, and blue.

Those who prefer a more tranquil space choose colours like beige, grey, and soft green. The result is an airy, elegant and calming interior that can be complemented with pops of dark coloured furniture pieces.
