Darren Palmer on 2019 interior design trends

first_imgCelebrity designer Darren Palmer is pumped about 2019.Celebrity designer and judge for TV show The Block Darren Palmer reveals the hottest colour for 2019 and other design trends for the year coming up. When you think of coral, images of island time and snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef likely conjure in your mind. RELATED: Palmer said there would always be a place for wall papers in florals, botanicals and palms and green would continue to be everywhere you look.“If you are fortunate enough to live near nature, green is everywhere and has so many variations, from apple and lime to eucalypt, sage, avocado and olive,” he said.“For the G.J. Gardner Tailored Collection I designed recently, I used Laminex Possum on the kitchen and bathroom cupboards in one of the house designs.“It’s a brand new eucalypt colour from Laminex and a great celebration of what’s great about Australian nature and how green is so dominant within it.” Aussies go bloomin’ mad for botanicals Darren Palmer says The Calile Hotel is a perfect example of the trends and colours to expect in 2019.

That’s along the lines of what Pantone would like you to envisage when thinking about their Colour of the Year for 2019 as being Living Coral, which they say is an “animating and life-affirming shade of orange with a golden undertone”.Pantone Color (sic) Institute executive director Leatrice Eiseman said in reaction to the onslaught of digital technology and social media increasingly embedding into daily life, they sought authentic and immersive experiences enabling connection and intimacy.“Colour is an equalising lens through which we experience our natural and digital realities and this is particularly true for Living Coral,” Ms Eiseman said.“With consumers craving human interaction and social connection, the humanising and heartening qualities displayed by the convivial Pantone Living Coral hit a responsive chord.” Pantone, provider of professional colour standards and digital solutions for the design industry, announced PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral as the Pantone Colour of the Year 2019.Design guru and The Block judge Darren Palmer couldn’t agree more, and said interior trends for 2019 were about getting back to nature.Palmer said coral was used everywhere in Brisbane’s newest trendsetting hotel, Calile, in Fortitude Valley. For the G.J. Gardner Tailored Collection Darren Palmer designed, he used Laminex Possum on the kitchen cupboards. It’s a brand new eucalypt colour from Laminex and a great celebration of what’s great about Australian nature and how green is so dominant within it.“Or if you’re really afraid of colour, think about buying some cost-effective soft furnishings and decor items that add a splash of colour — these are easily replaceable as trends shift or you decide you want a change.”He said demand for custom designed furniture would continue to surge in 2019 as people wanted items that reflected their lifestyle. One of Darren Palmer’s latest designs which will be on trend in 2019 — Surge gold quilt and palm leaves wallpaper.He said there were no hard and fast rules regarding the application of colour.“But the one important thing to get your head around is the difference between dominant and recessive colours,” he said.“Dominant colours like green, yellow and red will feel like they’re jumping forward, while recessive colours like purple and blue will feel like they’re going back.“Pairing dominant and recessive colours can be used to create focal points in a room, create an illusion of depth and space, or draw attention to statement pieces.”Palmer said in the past people painted feature walls in a dominant colour to add drama to a room — but feature walls were about 10 years out of date. “Painting doors or picture rail is a much more effective way to add a splash of colour and to separate spaces,” he said. “It’s a reaction to the mass produced furniture that has the same-same look,” he said.“People are looking for an artisan, handmade, bespoke response to furnishings.“While the major furnishers do their job well, there is increasingly a place for Australian handmade furniture and craftsmanship within a home alongside some of the more commoditised and popular retailer branded furniture.” Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayNext playlist itemMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 0:53Loaded: 0%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -0:53 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedQuality Levels720p720pHD432p432p288p288p216p216pAutoA, selectedAudio Tracken (Main), selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Spurs set for new signings

first_img “No worries about that and the people won’t worry about the team because we have a lot of good players that can play like a striker. “We need to be (more) solid than last season because we scored a lot of goals but the problem was we conceded a lot of goals. If we are more solid maybe we can reduce the gap with the top four.” Pochettino continues to be linked with transfers for Stuttgart’s Timo Werner, QPR forward Charlie Austin and West Brom’s Saido Berahino. The latter would likely cost in the region of £20million and represent a transfer policy Spurs have avoided since their disappointing summer in 2013, when the world-record £86million received from the sale of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid was largely squandered. Sporting director Franco Baldini’s reputation has suffered as a consequence but while Pochettino dismissed reports that the Italian is to leave the club, he also said that Spurs’ ability to develop talents like Kane prevents them from needing to spend as they did in 2013, as their rivals – including Liverpool, who paid £32.5million for Christian Benteke – continue to do. “Maybe Liverpool tried to find their Harry Kane but we have Harry Kane,” he said. “The people is very happy that our striker is Harry Kane. If you want to find players to compete with or improve Harry Kane it’s not easy. “My vision is (it’s) better to sign a player from England but it’s true that the market in England is crazy, it’s not easy. It’s better to bring some players from England but it’s not easy, maybe you need to bring some players from Europe. “(Baldini’s not leaving), nothing changed from the last season. Nothing’s changed.” Spurs have signed three defenders in Kieran Trippier, Toby Alderweireld and Kevin Wimmer so far this summer, but with Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor both expected to leave the club, Harry Kane is at risk of becoming their sole senior striker. “We have our target, I think in the next few days maybe something (will) happen,” said Pochettino, ahead of Tottenham’s trip to Old Trafford on Saturday to face Manchester United in the opening fixture of the new Barclays Premier League season. Mauricio Pochettino says Tottenham will announce a new signing in the next few days. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Former Syracuse forward Tyler Lydon: ‘I’m on cloud 9 right now’

first_imgTyler Lydon was playing wiffle ball at home Thursday afternoon. By the time the clock struck 11 p.m., his name had flashed across the screens of televisions all over the country. He’ll fly across the country to Denver in the coming days and, with a powder blue jersey on, answer questions at a press conference. Soon, he said, his nerves will calm down enough that he’ll be able to eat.It has been a crazy few hours for Lydon. He was selected by the Utah Jazz with the 24th pick in the first round of the 2017 NBA Draft, but his rights are likely to be traded to the Denver Nuggets. He wasn’t in Brooklyn for the draft itself, instead choosing to host his closest family and friends for a draft watch party at his home in Elizaville, New York, about 50 miles south of Albany. With them surrounding him, a lifelong dream was fulfilled.“I’m on cloud nine right now,” he said.Lydon said he really started to lock into the television broadcast once the range of picks he was predicted to be selected in arrived. He admitted that he didn’t expect to go to the Nuggets. Lydon worked out for 11 NBA teams, and Denver wasn’t one of them. He said he and his agent thought about trying to fit them into his schedule, but it didn’t make the most sense considering the Denver’s position in the draft. But the stars aligned after the trade with Utah.“They just said ‘Tyler,’ and then I heard ‘Ly,’ and then everybody just exploded,” Lydon said. “This is obviously an incredible moment, something that I’ll remember for the rest of my life. I couldn’t be more thankful to share it with the friends and family that came here.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textFrom a location perspective, Lydon, who has a wolf tattooed on his chest and is an outdoorsman at his core, isn’t complaining about going to Denver. His family is already envisioning the fly fishing and elk hunting that lies in the future. But he will be there to play basketball, and he thinks his ability to stretch the floor, along with his lifestyle, will fit in right away.“I’m so happy and I’m ready to go in there and work my butt off,” Lydon said. “Those guys, they put their reputation and everything on the line for me.”The former Syracuse forward played in Denver as a part of Team USA’s U-18 squad. The thin air might take a few days of adjustment, he said, but it’s not something he’s worried about.In fact, he said he’s not worried about much at all. Not about when he needs to get to Denver, or about the summer league, or what’ll be the first thing he buys when he signs his name on the dotted line of a rookie contract. He’s living in the moment.“It’s just an unbelievable thing to have your dreams come true,” Lydon said.
