Ahead, I’ve curated a collection of inspired interiors to introduce the trendiest hues into your space, keep scrolling for more!

Night Watch

Wonder what color will be trending in 2019? PPG Paints made its official Color of the Year announcement – Night Watch: a deep, rich green.

 

“The urge to reconnect with nature is driven by today’s tumultuous, still somewhat rebellious, always-connected society. Empty space in our lives—such as downtime waiting for a bus or lulls in conversation—tends to be filled with the use of our smartphones and devices,” said Dee Schlotter, PPG’s senior color marketing manager. “Being surrounded by Night Watch can give some of that empty space back by pulling our memories of natural environments to the surface to recreate the calming, invigorating euphoria we feel when in nature.”

 

Embodying the restorative and invigorating euphoria in connection with nature in today’s tumultuous life, the deep hue will no doubt be on more lips and nails this year too.

“The dark green hue pulls our memories of natural environments to the surface to recreate the calming, invigorating euphoria we feel when in nature,” explained Dee. The rich green tone evocative of lush greenery brings nature inside for interiors lack outdoor views.

Living Coral

In December 2018, the internationally-renowned authority on color, Pantone announced its annual Color of the Year 2019 — the vivifying and effervescent hue of Living Coral stepped into the spotlight.

 

Pantone has said that color “has always been an integral part of how a culture expresses the attitudes and emotions of times.” Hence, Living Coral is said to embody warmth, buoyancy and our desire to counteract the negative energy within the ever-changing world. Suggestive of our desire for playful expression, Living Coral is selected as a reaction to the continually shifting modern life.

When it comes to the power of color, as put by Leatrice Eiseman, exclusive director of the Pantone Color Institute, it’s “an equalizing lens through which we experience our natural and digital realities. And this is particularly true for Living Coral. With consumers craving human interaction and social connection, the humanizing and heartening qualities displayed by the convivial PANTONE Living Coral hit a responsive chord,” he added.

 

Pantone’s Color of the Year is “truly a reflection of what’s needed in our world today”, as revealed by Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute.
