Interior Design Color Forcast
Every year I attend the Sherwin-Williams Colormix Color Forecast held here at Johnson County Community College. Jackie Jordan, Director of Color Marketing for Sherwin-Williams shares her thoughts on what is going to be “hot” in the world of color and design. The forecast for 2015 did not disappoint the more than 300 designers, students and industry professionals.
“Like a butterfly emerging from its cocoon, we’re poised for change. As modern life and technology rush at us, we seek an oasis where we can find balance, mindful living and tempo giusto (the “right time,” or the steady, regular beat of the heart).
We look to earth and sky for inspiration, finding raw beauty in striations and gently blurred hues and patterns. Artisans break the mold, creating objects that aren’t what they seem. Shapes are layered and deconstructed. In this moment, silence is the greatest luxury, and metamorphosis is the mother of invention.”
I think many of us feel this way in our technologically driven world!
Soft whites, muted blacks, blues and beiges create that soft and natural feeling. Earthy wallpapers, deconstructed geometry in art, layered shapes, natural wood grain and asymmetry complete this feeling of “mindful living”.
