This fall the Apartment Therapy inbox was filled with press releases, mostly from paint companies, about color trends for 2015 and many declarations and predictions about the "color of the year". The jury is out on which of these colors will be embraced by the public, but we'd love to know which one is your personal favorite. Take a look at some of the candidates and vote below!
Marsala by Pantone
from Pantone: "Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness."
Guilford Green paint by Benjamin Moore
from Benjamin Moore: "Guilford Green is the perfect thread to connect nature, spaces and interiors with color schemes that signify fresh energy and growth".
Coral Reef paint by Sherwin-Williams
Copper Orange, predicted by Colour Futures
from Colour Futures: "It reflects and complements all of the major trends that we have identified for 2015: a warmth in attitude and a renewed emphasis on sharing; the natural palette of the earth, from clay tones to sunlit highlights of yellow; the skin tones that reflect human interaction and the sepia hues of the past."
Tanners Brown paint by Farrow & Ball
from Farrow & Ball: "This earth brown feels totally timeless and has an artisan feel to it"
Light Blue paint by Farrow & Ball
from Farrow & Ball: "The use of Light Blue in the home is intended to create an interior where colours shift and change like the landscape. We instinctively gravitate towards colours that remind us of the softer side of life to make our homes into an oasis of calm away from the brashness of modern life.
Breakfast Room Green paint by Farrow & Ball
from Farrow & Ball: "Taken straight from nature it makes us feel safe and calm in our home environment...This trend reflects a shift away from hard, graphic interiors to a softer more natural feel with a modern twist."
Pink Ground paint by Farrow & Ball
from Farrow & Ball: "Pink Ground creates a humble beauty in the home, making rooms feel pretty, soft edged and accessible. Although certainly warm, this pink is not sugary or infantile, rather it feels more like a diluted plaster colour where walls look almost nude."
Blue Paisley by Pittsburgh Paints
from Pittsburgh Paints: "...a lavish, almost-but-not-quite royal shade of blue...Homeowners are seeking home décor inspiration from multiple regions and influences, capable of transforming the home into a glamorous fusion of worldly possibilities. Selecting colors that signify a global eclecticism, such as Blue Paisley (PPG1328-6), aids in the translation of a homeowner’s rich collection of experiences into equally rich home décor options."
Time to vote! (Yes, Farrow & Ball chose four Colors of the Year)
