New Year is in its full force and we have not said a word about the color trend for 2019. Oooops! We are here to fix it and share with you all the hot news and inspiring ideas on the top color proclaimed for 2019. So, don’t hesitate to plunge into the news with FurniturePick today! Here we go:
Who is responsible for picking the color of the year?
It is the institution based in the faraway Netherlands, called AkzoNobel’s Global Aesthetic Center. It leads (for more than 16 years now) the color trend analysis, color research and design, mostly for decor, furniture design, and architecture on a bigger worldwide scale. The center actually was founded around quarter of the century ago, and could easily be respected as a prominent institution in the sphere. The team of experts in different spheres – from interior designers to trend watchers and architects – works annually on analysis of social, economic, global design and color trends to pick the one tending to dominate in the new year.
What trends in the world influence the choice of the global color trend for 2019?
Since the Center has chosen the motto for the year: “Now is the time to think, to dream, to love and to act”, it actually reflects the overall world trends. The trend research of the Global Aesthetic Center showed that people are feeling a renewed sense of energy, optimism and purpose. People now tend to engage with others, to create and change things for better. From marching for women’s rights and struggling for the ocean to be clean from plastic, to good deeds in everyday life and neighborly kindness.
Humanity is now ready to seize the moment. So, the moment has come to bring to the world the color of the interior and exterior, which reflects a sense of awakening and embraces the new spirit of positivity. We now want homes where we can be inspired to turn our dreams into actions, and let the light in. Whether in your right place to think and reunite – the living room, to communicate – the dining room space of your house, or the place to dream – your bedroom, let light be everywhere now.
So, finally, what is the color of 2019?
It is the color called Spiced Honey, which is inspired by the varied tones and properties of honey, and reflects the optimistic mood of the desire “to let the lights in”. In home design and decor, it can be calming and nourishing or more stimulating and energizing, depending on the light and colors surrounding it.
If two previous years in succession – 2017 and 2018 – were dedicated to the colder tones (grey-blue Denim Drift in 2017, and Heart Wood with a touch of soft pink in 2018, respectively), the year 2019 welcomes way warmer tone. So, get all the warm positiveness from the natural honey hues and get inspired with the hot trend for 2019 interior and home design.
