Two Hot Colour Combos to Try This Summer!

Here at Red Candy we’re always on the lookout for new homeware trends – recently we’ve looked at the pastel and tropical trends of 2017, and today we’re looking at colour combinations.

We love the idea of mixing and matching different colours, patterns and materials! Two colour combo trends which are emerging for summer are pink with gold and teal with copper! Both of these styles combine warm with cool and matt with shine with very different results…

pink and gold

Perfect for adding an understated yet opulent look to a space, the combo of pastel pink with gold would look fabulous in any living room or bedroom. The muted tones of the pastel pink is contrasted nicely with the shine of the metallic gold – meaning that the overall look isn’t too “in your face” but still maintains an elegant air. Pastel tones in general are a hot trend for 2017, and we reckon they will still be going strong next year too!

Products L-R: Karlsson Origami Wall Clock – Pink (£38), Illumin Pendant Light – Gold (£102), LSA Sorbet Tumblers – Rose – Set of 2 (£14), Heart Fruit Bowl – Gold (£15), House Candle Holder – Gold (£15), Geometric Rug – Pink (£165), Lines Baskets Set – Gold (£37), Pina Colada Pineapple Lamp – Pastel Pink (£72), Boho Gold Pineapple Candle Holder (£10)


Another trend which we adore at the moment is teal and copper in the kitchen! The contrast between cool matt teal and warm shiny copper works beautifully to create a kitchen which is both inviting and chic at the same time.

Of course it’s not just accessories which can be used to create this look – why not paint your walls teal and complement them with copper accessories? Alternatively, if you have a rustic style kitchen with copper wall racks, then why not add a splash of modern colour with teal highlights?

Products L-R: Umbra Tub Dish Rack – Teal (£15), Boston Industrial Pendant Lamp – Copper (£290), Wesco Single Breadboy Bread Bin – Turquoise (£54.95), Lincoln Copper Utensil Cup (£23.50), Lincoln Copper Countertop Wine Rack (£33), Stow and Hang Frame – Blue (£58), Copper Wire Dish Rack (£29), Umbra Joey Ceramic Soap Pump Teal (£12.50)


And the teal and copper combo doesn’t have to be confined to the kitchen – we love this gorgeous Indian Silk Lampshade by Love Frankie! With a sumptuous silk overlay with a shiny brushed copper lining, this eye-catching design would look amazing in any living room or bedroom.
