Colour Watch: Plum
Monday, 14 August 2017
From fruity purple to full-bodied red, as we shift towards Autumn / Winter, plum has been recognised as a leading colour choice for interiors.
A broad palette, Plum perfectly personifies the glamorous and decadent undertone prevailing current trends. Choose deep dark purple hues with the opulent texture of velvet upholstery for a dramatic accent in living spaces or indulge in plums more fruitful side to inject an exotic glamour with an air of fun sophistication.

Showcasing a vibrant 'berry' end of the spectrum, Calligaris have paired the Jungle Table in light Natural Oak with a plum inspired backdrop. This contrast demonstrates the notion of juxtaposing such an intense tone with unrefined mediums to create a pure contemporary space with a sultry ambience. As seen in the new Saint Tropez Dining Chair, splurges of gloss in the form of a patterned oxide red seat create a lustrous feel, whilst emphasising this seasons continued inclination towards layers and textured combinations.
Varying shades of blush pink can balance the superiority of plum. Coupling this less intrusive shade with soft shapes will create a welcoming and soothing feel against plum's passionate character.
