new colours FOR A

NEW DECADE 6


C

olours have never been more important in design than now. In a fast-paced world, with loads of information and products available, colours are one of the best tools to draw people’s attention and stimulate their senses. In times where consumers are looking to purchase a story and a mindset, colours become key to communicate the right message and mood.

But how can we predict which will be the colours of the future? Although powerful, colours can be highly subjective, especially through the lens of different generations. Brands and professionals within the design, architecture and fashion industries have been asking themselves this question and trying to provide an accurate answer. The answer to this question is in society itself. Whenever creating or choosing a colour for the years to come, we must interpret the trends in society and ask what will be relevant to people in the future. What are their hopes, dreams and needs? Colours are never only about shades/hues, they are mostly about trend analysis and behaviour. Colour influences can come from many different places: the film industry, social media, new artists, different areas of design, fashion, lifestyles, playstyles, new technologies, materials, texture among others. In this publication, you will find a compilation of colour choices for 2020 from well-known paint brands and some predictions about colour trends for the 202122 years. All choices and predictions show an optimism for the new decade, a strong desire to build human connections and stimulate creativity, to bring nature indoors and to promote well-being. In the last section, we are sharing with you some paint alternatives dealing with the growing concern about climate change and the environmental crisis.

JOTUN

2020 COLOURS Jotun launched twelve new shades for 2020, all designed to inspire a specific emotional reaction. The edge of a new decade is, according to Jotun’s Global Colour Manager Lisbeth Larsen, “a specially meaningful time of transition, when the colours we surround ourselves with can carry extra resonance.” Jotun Colour palette for 2020 was designed to convey hope and determination so characteristic of new beginnings. They represent our aspirations to learn and travel more, our desire to be more mindful, to express our creativity and to be closer to nature: from desaturated sage green to serene blues, from trend earth colours, such as the burnt and desaturated orange, to grounded red, from very light colours replacing total white to lively red.

Trend #1 “People want to play” As we increasingly live our lives through the prism of social media, there’s a growing desire to find delight in the real world, to break away from old routines and create stimulating and unexpected environments. The home can be a place that allows us to take pleasure in real-time experiences that delight our senses and make us feel truly alive. by Dulux

Trend #2 “People are seeking meaning� In our busy digitalised world that can feel superficial, we lack depth and meaning. The rapid advancement of technology is making us question our purpose. There is a growing desire for homes where we can live simply and focus on the things we value, without meaningless distractions. We need spaces where we can re-channel our energies and renew our sense of purpose. by Dulux

Trend #4 “People want to care” Modern life and our increasing dependence on technology and social media make us feel often disconnected from our relationships, our well-being, our communities, the built environment and the natural world. There is a growing desire to make real connections – with people, with nature, with our cities. By creating homes where we can enjoy good food, restful sleep and contact with the natural world, we are able to nurture the relationships that matter to us. by Dulux

PANTONE

CL A SSIC BLUE 19- 4 0 52 For more than twenty years, Pantone’s Colour of the Year has influenced product development and purchasing decisions in several industries, such as fashion, home furnishings, industrial design, product packaging, as well as graphic design. Pantone 19-4052 Classic Blue – a hue evocative of the sky at twilight, is Pantone’s Colour of the Year 2020. According to their research, this enduring blue highlights our desire to build a reliable and stable foundation as we walk into a new decade. As technology continues to race ahead of our human ability to process it all, Pantone presents this blue as non-aggressive and easily engaging hue. Their idea is to convey calm, confidence, and connection providing a relaxed interaction and always reminding us of the coming of a new day.

Golden Harvest Golden Harvest blends three colour trends – beige, ecru, and yellow - and it has a calm and nostalgic appeal. It calls us to mind the earthen clay buildings and Sahara landscapes of Morocco, as well as the retro gold-tinted filters that has become ubiquitous on social media. According to Coloro, this shade will work well for interiors, particularly upholstered furniture and soft dÊcor.

Bloodstone This rich colour is inspired by the hematite mineral found in iron ore underneath the earth’s surface. Therefore, Bloodstone also calls us to mind heritage themes, combining elements of classic brown and red. According to Coloro, Bloodstone will appeal across a range of categories, from fashion to interiors.

COLOUR S OF THE FUTURE

S U S TA I N A B L E COLOURS The colours of the future are definitely not only about shades. In the verge of a new decade, colours also reflect our growing concern about climate change and well-being awareness. Companies are either updating or creating products and collections that answer consumers’ aspiration to feel good about the environment and about themselves. All the paint companies featured in this publication offer low or zero VOC products and/or collections. VOC stands for "volatile organic compounds�, which are carbon-containing compounds emitted as gasses into the air. These gasses are very harmful to the environment and to people. One of the primary contaminants of indoor air are indeed paints, varnishes, and solvents that contain volatile organic compounds. At the same time, new eco-friendly paint options are emerging and becoming more popular. These include for example recycled paint, milk protein paint, plant or mineral-based paints and ceramic paint.
