Trend – Colors For 2018
Trend – Colors for 2018
Pantone Color of the Year Ultra Violet
Beautiful violet palette.
One of the first paint companies to release their prediction is PPG Paints, who named Black Flame (PPG1043-7) their new “it” shade.
“Black Flame acts like a black curtain, allowing your other décor elements to take center stage. It’s a fantastic blend of black and navy, two classic hues. Black creates the silence we crave in an information-heavy world, while the navy offers possibility and a deep hopefulness. The blend of two colors makes it incredibly versatile – use it on a statement wall, with a matte finish on a ceiling, with high gloss on a naturally-lit staircase, on cabinets, interior and exterior doors, and in many more places. The versatile hue can also provide strength and a modern luxe vibe to spaces with a lot of whites, blush pinks and soft pastels.”
So … Black Flame is the new black.
Meanwhile, Glidden Paint names Deep Onyx (00NN 07/000), which they describe as a no-fuss shade of black that encourages a “less is more” approach to decor. It almost has a chalkboard-like look to it, which is why it doesn’t feel too harsh when seen on walls and the floor.
So, black is back, big time. A modernized black is the most daring and fearless color trend of 2018. With PPG paints naming “Black Flame” as their color of the year, and Glidden Paints naming “Deep Onyx,” black is a timeless staple that delivers a high level of sophistication to any space. Buyers wanting to make their space look expensive and sexy can turn to black to attain this objective.
Exceptional ‘classic black’ classical space.
Sherwin-Williams 2018 Color of the Year pick is ‘Oceanside’. The company says when picking a hue prediction for 2018, it wanted to speak to the public’s growing desire for color that’s “both accessible and elusive.”
“I love a color that’s also a state of mind — that’s what Oceanside feels like to me,” says Editor in Chief of House Beautiful, Sophie Donelson. “It’s a cocoon color. We often see similar hues chosen for libraries and studies, because its depth makes it comforting, but also bold and adventurous. It’s like watching a Nature channel deep-sea exploration from the comfort of your sofa!”
Designer Jeffrey Phillip is a fan, too. “I like that it’s a versatile color that will work with a traditional style, but can also work well with a modern style. It’s a color that can bring drama and warmth to almost any room in your home, and since it’s part of the blue family, it maintains soothing qualities while still being dramatic.”
Designer Francesco Bilotto has it all figured out how the average person can use this color. “I’d like to see it paired with crisp white moldings and used as a backdrop to just about any upholstered or wood furnishing, because it’s sophisticated yet tranquil vibe would easily elevate the home.”
Benjamin Moore is offering the bold hue Caliente AF-290 for its 2018 Color of the Year.
“Strong, radiant and full of energy, Caliente AF-290 is total confidence. It is pleasing, passionate and makes people feel special, like ‘red carpet treatment,'” said Ellen O’Neill, Benjamin Moore Director of Strategic Design Intelligence. “Whether used as one note or on four walls, the spirited personality of red turns heads signaling surprise and adventure. The eye can’t help but follow its bold strokes.”
I love a deep saturated color whenever and wherever I can find on. This shade of red sets my soul on fire!” says interior designer Scot Meacham Wood.
