Color continues to be the biggest story for all fashions and interiors reports. While it’s been a slow transition from the neutral palettes that have dominated in seasons past, color is igniting consumer imagination and steering the direction of design settings.
- Blue is an ever-changing yet omnipresent hue, classic in all iterations but most influential for 2015 in indigo. Soothing and easy to live with, this alluring shade has the versatility of a neutral while injecting personality into a setting, especially when paired with white or a splash of vibrant pink or orange.
- Jewel tones of green give way to fresher, nature-inspired shades. Deeper olive and balsam are given new life and neutral status.
- Color pairings mimic the vibrancy of nature, with dazzling teal blue seen with clay orange and neutral olive green. On the brighter side, turquoise, coral and vivid green can be seen against a white ground.
- While magazines and design shows are ushering in the era of color, the backbone of most interiors is still neutrals. Pantone has declared grey the color of the decade; sky greys continue to be the most essential of foundational tones, but are warming towards taupe and beige.
- Subtle veils of pastel color are found in beachy washes of white sand and shell colors from softest pink to light brown. Muted neutrals tinted with color are layered with earthy hues ranging from shitake mushroom and nut brown to desert orange and balsam green.
