AW15 Home Colour Trends : Oxblood Interiors

Oxblood is the colour to watch in AW15 home interiors. It’s a bolder shade of burgundy, but not as matt as marsala. It’s a beautiful rich colour, perfect for adding warmth to the interior of your home. Oxblood interiors make a statement when used well and can be complementary to a monochrome or warm palette.

 When adding Oxblood to your living room, add it in small doses because a little goes a long way. The brilliant aspect about oxblood is it can work well with neutral and greyscale interiors. White, beige and grey compliments this living room and creates a moody, yet welcoming feel.

 This modern living room has a bit of old and modern mixed together to create an electic look. The zebra print rug and gold textured cushions and oxblood velvet occasional chairs create an inviting space. Don’t be afraid to mix oxblood with other shades of red if you want to add more colour to your space.

Bright colours can work well with oxblood. Burnt orange, hot pink and purple compliment the oxblood feature wall without it looking too regal. In this living room, the painting is the hero piece that brings all the colours together in this bright space.
