Ecora expert Jay du Toit makes her big design predictions for 2015!

Ecora design expert Jay du Toit has started the year off attending some of design's top events, and she shares her predictions for what will be big for the coming year...  Exciting times ahead for interiors, style and design, that's for sure!  


Beautiful Burgundy
No doubt influenced by Pantone's choice of Marsala as their colour of the year, we have seen this rich colour used not only on walls, but also in luxury velvet material on chairs and in lighting. Pictured below is Earthborn paint palette in this hue, as stocked by Ecora

Wire trends

We have noticed a lot of furniture, especially tables, being produced with an emphasis based on the design of the wire legs. This has also been picked up in lighting, giving a nod to a Moroccan theme.

Olive Green

We have regularly noticed that designers are raving about olive green. This may be the colour choice for 2015 with designers using it in kitchens and in upholstery. 


Ink blue

We have seen this rich colour slowly starting to creep into interiors in the last few months, and I think it's set to feature strongly in 2015. Great paired with white and fresh yellow for a very Mediterranean interior. We love the Button Tin colour from Earthborn paints, a little fresher than a traditional ink blue, but a great interior feature.


A Nod to the Eighties

The 1980's are back! Thank goodness we are only seeing more of muted colour palettes with shocks of neon colour and not the hairstyles! Think colour combos of aqua pools with bright pink flamingos. 

Partnering Prints and Strong Colours 

Not for the faint-hearted but definitely a hot option for an on-trend interior! Graphic and bold prints are being paired together to create a fresh approach to interiors - think stripes and tie dye patterns put together.


With tons of trends out there, whichever you decide to follow, make sure you have fun doing it in 2015!
