The 2018 Home Design Color Trends celebrate exploration, experimentation and the desire to combine and create the unexpected. Color trends in both fashion and home design are largely driven by the pulse of the world.
Pantone has been known as the world authority on color trends since the year 2000. Their predictions are based on trends seen in the art scene, movies, food, sports, fashion runways, all areas of design, and politics.
The year 2017 has brought more environmental rages, death and destruction then we have seen for quite a while. Consumers are eager for adventure, fun and a playful release. For this reason, it is understandable that Pantone, as well as Benjamin Moore and Sherward Williams, have selected uplifting shades and feel-good tones for 2018.
Pantone’s: 2018 Home Design Color Trends
“breaks free from old-fashioned thinking”.
Consumers are expressing a desire for colorful self-expression – they want bolder, brighter shades. Thus the color stories selected by Pantone for 2018 break free from old-fashioned thinking.
These colors are energized, and the hues are mixed in new combinations that express a fresh approach that satisfies the desire for newness and exploration.
Once again Pantone, Benjamin Moore, and Sherwin-Williams have all selected a different 2018 Color of the Year.
Benjamin Moore’s: 2018 Home Design Color Trends “ is total confidence.”
Caliente AF-290 is guaranteed to pack serious happiness into any room. A little of bit of red, as shown in the accent wall above can pack a lot of excitement into a room. Especially when mixed with a contrasting color such as white.
SHERWIN-WILLIAMS: 2018 Home Design Color Trends “evokes optimism.”
Sherwin-Williams is also moving away from neutrals with their 2018 color pick. The company says they sought to speak to society ‘s growing desire for color that’s “both accessible and elusive.” The outcome is a deep and sulky shade called Oceanside.
