Your home is your refuge, your delight, and another way to showcase your personality. Wall color is the foundation for all of the things that create a comfortable, cherished, and representative space. It can totally transform the mood of a space, and give a room exciting energy or relaxed bliss.
Color authority Pantone released their predictions for trending colors for fall 2015 a few months ago, and we’re excited about the mix of bold and rich tones that they forecasted. Elle Décor recently shared an infographic about Pantone’s 10 predicted ‘down to earth’ colors for fall 2015, which described the fall color palette as “[weaving] earthy neutrals with a range of bold color statements and patterns to reflect a landscape of hope, fun, fantasy and all things natural.”
We are all about these beautiful hues, which bring back the fun, optimistic sentiments of the 1960s and ‘70s. The softer pastel colors of Cadmum Orange, Cashmere Rose, Desert Sage, and Oak Buff compliment the darker, duskier Dried Herb and Stormy Weather. Richer, vibrant hues such as Amethyst Orchid, Marsala, Biscay Bay, and Reflecting Pond round out the palette with some gusto.
These predictions are far from random – Pantone polls designers from many industries to learn the colors they plan to use in their products for upcoming seasons. Then, they update the rest of us with the results so that we can all get excited about color!
