Whether you’re in the fashion or décor world, there is always a lot of excitement when Colors of the Year palettes are released. Design companies spend months studying the current culture, environment, political climate to decide what role color needs to play in our lifestyle. According to Pantone, 2019 Home Color Trends will reflect a desire to encourage ourselves as we face the future. The Pantone Color Institute, the authority for 2019 Home Color Trends, has selected 72 colors in eight color palettes that they predict will be seen in homes in 2019.
The shades in “Cravings” are intended to entice the eye and the taste buds.
Spicy reds, sweet flamingo orange, and rich purples create an allusion to ‘fetish foods,” such as peppers and chocolate, are moderated by the warmth of a neutral Cappuccino shade or a grassy green hue. According to Pantone, these hues will “draw upon memorable sensory experiences to inspire new ones that will be just as pleasing.” Deep shades like the “Cravings” color palette work well as statement colors, such as an accent wall or upholstery on a sofa.

The tones of “Classico” are more elegant and a mix of soft and strong color.
Imagine a graceful swan white with a camel background, with accents of deep teals, gray flannels, burgundy reds, and caviar blacks.

A warm terracotta color with ancient, elemental roots, Cavern Clay SW 7701, is our 2019 Color of the Year.
Cavern Clay is a nod to midcentury modern style, but with the soul of the American Southwest, which together creates a desert modern aesthetic. “Earth tones are emerging as a top trend in kitchen designs this year,” Wadden shares. “The Naturalist journal from Sherwin-Williams 2019 Colormix Color Forecast includes mushroom tones and leafy greens, which create a relaxing scene for kitchens. If it’s the dining room that needs updating, the Aficionado’s rich blues and tailored neutrals pair well with light wood accents, and copper or gold fixtures, evoking a sense of timeless tradition.”
