September Colourtrend of the Month- Baked Plum - Colourtrend Paints

September 16, 2021 2 min read

As we enter the Autumnal months, we look forward to occupying our minds with beloved hobbies and pastimes that bring us a unique sense of comfort and satisfaction. September’s Colourtrend of the Month, Baked Plum, can fill your home with the same sense with its intriguing and profound, deep tone.

This rich shade will bring an enveloping sense of comfort to any home setting. Choosing Baked Plum as your main wall colour will add depth to your living space and will ensure a heart-warming, cosy feeling. As shown in the living room pictured below, this colour adds an old-world feel to this space and works beautifully with the colourful soft furnishings to create a uniquely charismatic look. Consider introducing a muted teal tone such as Long Weekend or Recollection in your scheme to add a refreshing pop of colour alongside this comforting shade.

Alternatively, Baked Plum can be used as a feature colour in your home to softly introduce colour in to an otherwise neutral scheme. Introducing a statement colour in your space in the form of a feature wall or accent furniture is an excellent means of effortlessly refreshing your interior look. Turn to Baked Plum as an accent colour to sit against warmer toned neutrals such as Parsons Stone to create a mellow, contemporary look.

Keep an eye out on our social platforms for more ways to incorporate Baked Plum and similar shades into your home.
