At Window Treats serving Holmdel, we know that many of our customers feel overwhelmed when they try to introduce new color to their homes. That’s why we’re always happy to help share tips and tricks to finding and using the colors they love. One way to learn about new colors is to follow the chosen Color of the Year. Read on to learn more!
Past Colors of the Year
Each year, the Pantone Color Institute predicts what will be the trending color for the year. “The Pantone Color of the Year has come to mean so much more than ‘what’s trending’ in the world of design; it’s truly a reflection of what’s needed in our world today,” noted Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute. Here are some of the colors that were popular in years past:
- Character-Inspired. In 2015, for the first time ever, Pantone color system based a color on a movie franchise: Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s Despicable Me. They used their playful yellow to coin “Minion” Yellow, a color designed to lift our moods and environment.
- 2016: Rose Quartz and Serenity. In 2016, the Color Institute offered up not just one but TWO trending forecasted colors. Rose Quartz and Serenity, known for their calm and peaceful approach, were forecasted to replicate how we would want to feel in the following months.
- 2017: Greenery. Reminiscent of the first day of spring, this yellow-green, snow pea color “is the color of hopefulness and of our connection to nature.”
- 2018: Ultra Violet. Provocative, visionary, and a symbol of unconventionality, Ultra Violet has always been considered a mystical or spiritual color.
Remember that you can add as little or as much color as you’d like—in anything from wall paint to window treatments to throw pillows. But choose your color wisely. As you can see from the list above, trends come and go. If you find that you’ve fallen in love with a past color of the year, don’t be afraid to use it even today. It’s your home, and you need to choose colors you’ll love to see day in and day out.
