January heralds many big announcements. Entertainment fans will love the Golden Globes. Economists are eagerly awaiting the first employment figures for the new year. And designers and rabbits (like me) are waiting to experience the color of the year.
Color plays an important role in every design or staging. Different colors evoke different emotions. There is a whole psychology of which colors to wear. Colors say a lot about our mood. You know the red tie. Does anyone feel goth black?
This year’s Pantone color of the year is PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue , The company calls it comforting and reliable. The executive director of the Pantone Color Institute says that color provides the consistency and trust that are appropriate for a life in a time that requires trust and trust.
Other paint brands have announced their own color of the year. If you want more colors, check out this list,
I am a big fan of colors and like to use them in my stages in an unexpected way.
Here are some things you can do with the color of the year in the design.
Paint the front door. This new blue color would look great with all the gray houses you see these days.
On a bookshelf.
Give kitchen cabinets or island color
(Look, the island in my own house is already blue! I’m a trendsetter.)
Backsplash in a kitchen. Yes, I did that too.
As an accent for furniture … think of blankets and pillows. Yes, manufacturers are already there.
I also like to get brave and have a neutral palette, with the exception of an anchor piece of furniture like a large chair or console.
I also like a solid color artwork with a bold color as the subject of the painting.
Another really fun thing is building a color family. Just keep piling it up. Do not stop with the furniture, carpets, works of art, soft goods. Shoot you can even do walls. Head over to Pinterest and type in layering colors in the interior. If you are like me, you will be entertained for hours.
The whole “Color of the Year” phenomenon started 20 years ago. The color of 1999 was Cerulean. A cheerful shade of blue. A moment when life closes? Me too.
Remember that colors go in and out of fashion like anything else. Just like our love affair with gray, everything goes back to a more neutral palette, Classic Blue will eventually become a passport. Keep this in mind when determining how much and when you want to use it.
And if you don’t like color well, you can choose from a variety of shades of white that actually add color without adding color to your space.
But now ride the wave. Got it? Waves. Water. Blue. Make the PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue.
