Are future design movements rooted in the past? Sherwin-Williams would certainly suggest so. Sherwin-Williams has revealed the 2023 Color of the Year, Redend Point SW 9081, a mid-tone neutral that walks the line between blush and beige. It’s described as a modern mauve that conjures a timeless elegance, romantic beauty and balance of a time gone by.
PPG and Glidden are kicking off the 2023 Color of the Year (COTY) choices with Vining Ivy – a deeply saturated, jewel-toned green with cool turquoise undertones that conveys a sense of adaptability.
As some of you are adjusting to the start of school, everyone in the design world’s sights are set on the trends that will take over in the months ahead—especially the colors we’ll be seeing everywhere next year. Sherwin-Williams is plotting a new course with its Colormix Forecast for 2023: Terra.
Presented as a collection of 40 colors spanning the spectrum of green and blue to brown, warmer neutrals, and even pops of yellow. Terra is separated into four palettes—Biome, Lore, Nexus, and Origin— collectively representing notions of connection, whether with the earth, our creative practices, ourselves, or our wildest dreams.
As the world moves back to speed mode, contradictory feelings are emerging; we desperately want to enjoy life and freedom once again, but, at the same time, we feel the need to protect and preserve that ‘suspended’ space we experienced during the pandemic. Yet, this uncomfortable duality we are experiencing right now is a new feeling that has the power to become a wake-up call to new activism, unforeseen opportunities and unexpected ideas.
The PANTONEVIEW Home + Interiors 2023 color planner speaks to this new design vision, one that is simultaneously anchored by what we want to keep and foster and by what we want to invent, create and experiment with. Releases every year by Pantone, this collection features key color directives, suggested color harmonies plus material and product application for the home and furnishings market.
