Introducing The Colour Forecast Volume 10

With the arrival of a new season, comes the release of the newest addition to Haymes Colour Library, the Colour Forecast Volume 10. Featuring three bold yet opposing colour palettes, the Colour Forecast features complex tones that add depth and detail to any living space.

Wendy Rennie, Colour and Concept Manager, says that this is Haymes most diverse Colour Forecast yet, featuring a broad range of both colours and textures that reflect the versatility of contemporary living.

Colour used is Haymes Artisan Mortar in Rare Herb

Jumping into the first palette, Unearthed mimics the familiar tones of the Australian landscape, drawing inspiration from the earth and designed to add warmth and a sense of familiarity to any living space.

Unearthed is bold yet adaptable, able to highlight the delicate features of a period home whilst having the ability to add character to the clean lines of a modern build.

Colour used is Haymes Artisan Mortar in Deep Canyon

Designed to portray realistic natural surfaces, this edition of the Colour Forecast includes a selection of Haymes Artisan Collection for the first time.

The Unearthed series has been perfectly paired with the earthy matt finish of the Artisan Mortar finish to achieve a look that is both stylish and tactile. With the focus of simplicity in contemporary home design, texture is often all it takes to transform a simple space into one that is captivating yet refined.

The next palette, Verge, contrasts deep midnight tones against berries and metallics to bring an atmosphere of luxe to any room.

Colour used is Haymes Midnight Blue

Striking the perfect balance between subtle and overstated, the Verge palette adds glamour and depth to any space without making the room look overdressed and unusable. Also featuring textured finishes from the Haymes Artisan collection, the use of metallic Metal Trace can be used as a feature or accent covering to add allure to an otherwise flat space.

Used solo or in tandem, these cool tones create a relaxing and calm space, perfect for use in bedrooms, offices, bathrooms and living areas.

Colour used is Haymes Artisan Soft Chalk in Strong Teal and Haymes Midnight Blue

The finale palette, Streetscape, features urban tones suggestive of a city street or laneway. Haymes was born and bred in Victoria, and there is no doubt that Melbourne’s famous laneways have inspired the vibrant tones of this palette.

Colour used is Haymes Cheddar, Haymes Danish Blue, Haymes China Silk and Haymes Coraline

Streetscape was designed to inject energy into everyday life. Pushing the boundaries of colour blocking, Streetscape’s bold tones can be used on their own or together to give individual rooms their own colour story.

Although some may typically shy away from the broad use of bold colours, Streetscape works effectively as an accent colour against the monotone of many modern homes. Alternatively, add texture instead with the concrete like look and feel of Haymes Artisan Rendercoat.
