The wall design can give the living space a completely new effect. It speaks for the character of the landlord, determines the mood of the living room and color also known to influence our emotions.

Living Coral and statement wallpapers are the wall design trends in 2019

The color institute Pantone has set the color of the year 2019 with "Living Coral" A vibrant orange with a coral undertone, inspired by the creative industry, society and popular travel destinations, after "Greenery" and "Ultra Violet" in the years 2017 and 2018 Pantone voted "Living Coral" for the twentieth time the color of the year.

If that is too glaring, you can also switch to the so-called "Ice Cream Colors". Pastel shades in pistachio, strawberry and mango are this year's trend in the interior sector. The designs bring a certain variety in the four walls and can be very beautifully combined.

Even so-called statement wallpapers will resurface at least since this year. Eye-catching wallpapers with large patterns put statements in our home and can even replace decorative elements.

Place emphasis on quality and longevity when choosing colors

Whether trendsetter or the classic white, it is important that the colors chosen for the design do not harm our health. Particular attention should be paid to the ingredients. Harmful chemicals, solvents, preservatives and softeners are not allowed on the list.

In some cases, these substances can cause allergies, skin rashes, respiratory problems and headaches, or even be carcinogenic in the long term. In particular, attention must be paid to a low VOC value (volatile organic compounds).

Little Greene and the National Trust create historic colors for modern living spaces

Since the beginning of 2018, Little Greene has been working with the National Trust - the organization dedicated to preserving English Heritage. The aim of the joint color research project is to find the original colors that were used in the National Trust homes and gardens back then, reviving people's stories.

A real synergy in terms of preservation, restoration and reinvention. The National Trust takes care of more than 250.000 acres of land, 775 km of coast and hundreds of special properties throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
