Milan Design Week wrapped last week and it was overflowing with design inspiration! We detected three key colour palettes that wove their way throughout the exhibition and beyond into the style capital’s glamorous showrooms. All images below were taken by the Decor + Design team in Milan.


Dusty pinks, greens and ecru (the colour of unbleached linen) were prominent in 2022. It reminded us of the ancient Basilica di Santa Maria Novella in Florence, a hop and a skip from Milan.

We love these pink drawers from Acerbis, as well as the deep green sofa from luxury powerhouse Knoll.

Strong pops of yellow and orange in varying shades were a huge theme this year. From bright yellow to mustard and burnt orange.


Finally, a medley of greys could be seen, such as in the Universal Collection of chairs by Jean Marie Massoud for MDF Italia.

Patricia Urquiola’s beautiful collaboration with Kartell is another stylish example.
