Trend Beyond Colours

Collection of 2022-23


is a collective movement to ready us
for what lies ahead, to draw a line,
and simply start all over again.

In this 2022-2023 instalment, we encourage industries and communities to break free from the shackles of the past and start afresh. In being driven by our innate emotions we highlight the need for genuine human connections. Colours are a universal language and an extremely powerful tool to bring people of all backgrounds and lifestyles together, across the globe.

In these coming chapters

We explore four influences and trend stories shaping the future of how we’ll interact with colours through spatial design and other creative aspects of life. RESET sets the tone for us to select colour palettes that resonate with our state of mind and perspective of the world.

From within, we express an appreciation for nature and wellbeing through the play of colours. In interacting with others, colours inspire us to be mindful and genuine in building meaningful connections.


What is our inspiration and influences
for 2022-23 ?

Healing Nature

Create a healthy home with
the power of nature.

A better understanding of the positive impact of nature upon our health is influencing how we picture healthy living and working environments. A growing consideration for the welfare of the planet ensures that we combine this with a more sustainable approach.

Total Wellbeing

Balance mind, body and spirit
with environments that support
whole wellbeing.

To achieve mind, body and spirit balance we take a 360° view of our health. As we track our nutrition and fitness and even our sleep and recovery, we welcome restorative spaces that rebalance our whole being.

Better Together

It’s time to celebrate
the joy of reconnection.

We are social beings; whether we’re collaborating at work, creating lasting memories with family, or simply passing the time with friends. Having been separated from each other we are drawn to spaces that we can share and appreciate together.

Meaningful Moments

Take a moment to appreciate
life’s simple pleasures.

With an increasingly fast pace, the demands of everyday life can easily leave us with no time to ourselves. Practicing mindfulness and allowing time to reflect inspires us to seek environments that bring us moments of delight.




Forecasting and setting colour trends is a sophis-ticated work of science, creativity and inspiration. In collaboration with Nippon Paint and Colour Hive, the third instalment of Trend Beyond Colours 2022/2023 progresses our development of a holistic inspirational guide for the world. There has been a shift in behaviour across the world in the past year in response to global events that has encouraged us to see the world in a brandnew light.



Let nature in...

From glorious sunrises to the sound of leaves in the breeze, or the sweet scent of a fresh flower, nature stimulates all of our senses. The familiar colours of the natural landscape have the power to restore our spirits and improve our health, and this is the inspiration for REVIVE. Here, we discover how to bring all of the benefits of nature into your home.

Colour story #1

Be calm...

Modern living is hectic, and the world both inside and outside our homes can be noisy and overs-timulating. To offset these effects, we should look to restorative spaces with gentle, nature inspired colours and textures that soothe. In RESTORE we explore how to enhance our wellbeing with a personal haven of calm and tranquillity.
