Both inspirational and aspirational, color can set a tone for a room, bringing in needed calm, joy, or energy. At Window Treats serving Monmouth Beach, we know the importance color can have on a home—that’s why we love helping people choose the right color for their décor. Sometimes customers need a little inspiration for color choice, and that’s often where the Pantone Color of the Year comes in, because it sets the tone for trends in the year to come. If you’re interested in what Pantone (the world’s preeminent authority on color) has to say about this year’s trending color, read on!
Pantone Viva Magenta
The Pantone Color Institute weighs current climate, past behaviors, and past trends to reach a balance on what they expect the upcoming year to need. This year, they landed on Viva Magenta, which, as the team notes, “vibrates with vim and vigor.” Even its name is exciting and evokes a sense of “self-expression without restraint; an electrifying, boundaryless shade.” It’s “an unconventional shade for an unconventional time.”
Using Viva Magenta
This year’s color is a “nuanced crimson tone” that balances warm and cool, “an animated red that encourages experimentation.” Because Pantone selects a color that reflects trends across numerous industries—including fashion, beauty, technology, design, and home décor—you’ll be seeing Viva Magenta all around in the very near future. It won’t be hard to find items that you can bring to your home! In fact, Pantone has already put together numerous collaborations using the color: Motorola phones, Spoonflower designs, CARIUMA shoes, Deepa Gurnani jewelry, and more. You don’t have to go nuts with this bold color, but you can bring it into your home and everyday life in splotches that zing.
