If you’re interested in color but don’t know where to turn for inspiration, don’t worry. The experts from Pantone can tell you each year which color will be trending. In fact, their pick for 2019 should be announced any day now—so you’ll be able to find out what color will be “hot” next year and that you’ll see in any number of industries and products, from automobiles to fashion to window treatments. At Georgia Blinds & Interiors here in Atlanta, we thought it’d be fun to take a look down memory lane at some of the past Colors of the Year, just to get thinking about what might be in store for us very soon. Read on to learn more!
Pantone Color Institute
Each year, the Pantone Color Institute prediction often sets the stage for trends in fashion, window treatments, wall coverings, and interior design. However, “The Pantone Color of the Year has come to mean so much more than ‘what’s trending’ in the world of design; it’s truly a reflection of what’s needed in our world today,” noted Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute. For example, in years past, here are the colors they predicted:
- 2014: Radiant Orchid. A striking combination of purple and pink, this saturated hue of is best used as an accent color against neutrals ranging from frosty whites to silvery greys.
- 2016: Rose Quartz and Serenity. In 2016, the Color Institute offered up not just one but TWO trending forecasted colors. Rose Quartz and Serenity, known for their calm and peaceful aura, were forecasted to replicate how we would want to feel in the following months.
- 2018: Ultra Violet. Offering originality, Ultra Violet is provocative and visionary. Long a symbol of unconventionality, Ultra Violet has always been considered a mystical or spiritual color.
