Color of the Year Design Notes

Announcing the color of the year for 2017…green. In various shades and a bit different from source to source but it is in fact green. Quite a big change from the various shades of white a year ago. It follows the influence of botanical looks that surround us and is also acting as a calming agent in our turbulent world right now.

“LUSH” SHAW’S COLOR OF THE YEAR

Lush is nature’s neutral. From the tallest trees to the deepest valleys, green surrounds us. It’s vibrant, but at the same time, soothing. It changes with the seasons without ever getting old or boring. It’s sprouting up in interior design and fashion trends across the world. Lush spans every style, from glamorous to rustic to contemporary. It can be a statement color, and it plays just as nice with jewel tones as it does with popular neutral hues. Lush can also be used as an accent color to pull out subtle hues in a tweed carpet, bold print or throw pillow. Lush is an excellent companion to hardwood flooring. Just as you’d see in nature, Lush greens are an organic complement to the natural beauty of hardwood.

Design Note: Color of the Year

Benjamin Moore paints has announced its “color of the year” for 2017,

Benjamin-Moore-Shadow-Benjamin-Moore-Color-of-the-Year-2017

Shadow 2117-30. It is a dark, muted amythest purple toned color which is quite a contrast to last year’s color of the year, which was a shade of white. It will pair well most shades of grey and neutral beige to provide a nice contrast. Use it as an accent in bedrooms or dining rooms to give the space a calm feeling. Pair it with soft yellow for a touch of sophistication or with white to provide contrast in a room. This is a color that will also start showing up in accessories and linens as well, providing touches of richness to your bathroom or dining table.

DESIGN NOTES:

Having recently completed a series of design presentations for new product, one question seems to always surface; what ever happened to color on our floors? (i.e.; carpets, vinyl tile, etc. in colors) The answer is actually simple, people are less afraid of bold colors than they were in the past. This is shown by the use of strong colors in today’s accessories and accents being used by homeowners. A neutral base on the floor and even in larger furniture pieces, like a sofa, gives a homeowner the ability to choose items they like, whether it is a piece of artwork for the wall, colorful throw pillows or even a painted accent wall. It also allows them to change whenever they want. We have all become more exposed to color via HGTV, Pinterest and as a result are using it in places we never would have thought of before.
