Colors of Optimism
One of the top décor trends is “colors of optimism”. In 2019, we’ll see a rise in colors that are associated with optimism like bold yellows, oranges, and hot pinks. Pantone announced the color of the year as “Living Coral” and kicked off a design phenomenon. And the trend has extended far beyond decor into fashion, paint colors, fabrics and so much more!
Living Coral is defined by Pantone as “An animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge. Living Coral emits the desired, familiar, and energizing aspects of color found in nature. Symbolizing our innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits.”
We also saw this color trend represented at the 2019 Oscars. From the bold color choices worn by the attendees to the speeches surrounding inclusiveness, change, diversity, encouragement, and empowerment. Even the cast, crew and movies nominated can be categorized within this theme. Whether it be political, social or environmental, it seems that optimism is resonating in all aspects of 2019.
In fashion, CHANEL’s Spring 2019 line is full of these “Colors of Optimism.” They showed bold hues of yellow, teal, periwinkle and soft pinks. Home décor trends are no different. DESIGNER8* furniture is showing dusty rose and soft periwinkle colored velvets in our Alexis and Grayson collections, ottomans, pillows, and accents. We also have a number of bold and optimistic hues in our Maxwell chairs, that easily evoke fun and happiness.
We are looking forward to an amazing year of designing events ahead filled with color and optimism!
