Every year, paint companies and colour trend forecasters make their predictions for what the Colour of the Year will be in the coming months. Behr says it will be an “uplifiting blue,” Benjamin Moore selected a neutral gray, Sherwin-Williams says it will be a terra cotta colour, and Pantone went bold with a bright coral. But I’m leaning toward the selection by PPG called Night Watch.
This is a rich and classic green that I think more people will want to use in their homes. In times of uncertainty, a calming colour always becomes more popular. Plus, green is always listed as the second most popular colour for people, just behind blue. I’ve noticed that I’ve been using it more in my own projects, too!
Interior designers are always the first to use the latest colours or to spot new ideas before they become trends. As you can see above, I was already starting to gravitate toward deep greens all the way back in July.
In fact, looking back through my travel photos from 2018, I can see how inspired I was by this deep green colour - in art, in fashion, and even on a door!
I was stopped in my tracks by the incredible green-glazed pottery in Sarah Bartholomew’s Nashville store!
I started specifying even more than usual from this part of the colour chart, as you can see above. So many gorgeous greens to choose from!
As an early adopter, I’m using these green hues more and more now, like I did above for Alden Parkes. How gorgeous is that Kelly Wearstler fabric for Kravet??
Designers are always early adopters, and working as much as I do with colour I know I’m on the write track. I’m looking forward to 2019 being the Year of Green!
Until next time,
