Were you aware that, each year, there’s a new Color of the Year? Last year’s choice, PANTONE Greenery, evoked a sense of nature and had an earthy feel. This year’s is a bit more about the cosmos. At Window Products serving Branford, Connecticut, we know that color is important to mood and the senses. That’s why we’re happy to help our customers add new color to their homes, whether that’s through the trending color or through another one. If you’re interested in adding color, speak with one of our specialists today.
About the Forecasted Color of the Year
Twice a year, color/trend forecasters and home décor and fashion designers meet to decide what the colors will be for the next two years. Before they meet, they study past trends and forecast future ones. All industries that produce a product for fashion, home furnishings, hospitality, and automotive follow forecasted trends. Each industry adjusts the forecasted color direction to their area and products. Warmer-climate colors may be lighter, while cooler-climate colors may be a bit darker than the actual forecasted color.
The 2018 Color of the Year
Pantone® Ultra Violet 18-3838 will be appearing in more and more places as the year unfolds. It’s a reflection of a new beginning as well as the originality and visionary thinking that will take us into the future. Long a symbol of unconventionality, counterculture icons such as Prince and Jimi Hendrix boldly brought to the forefront purples as a personal expression of their individuality. Ultra Violet has always been considered a mystical or spiritual color. You will see the purple-toned hue in communities that inspire connection, such as meditation spaces and other gathering places. Both the fashion and the home décor industries will be embracing this provocative color direction in their designs.
