Color of the Year 2019
It’s that time again, Pantone will be releasing its color of the year any day now, last year we were surprised at their selection of UltraViolet. The deep shade of purple had been on the fashion runway in various designer collections but from an interior design perspective had not yet made a statement. Still, we don’t see a huge lean towards the shade in any real way.
So far we have already seen Sherwin Williams select their color for the year, 2019, Cavern Clay, shown below. According to Sherwin Williams, “We believe 2019 will be a renaissance of the 1970s—with a twist,” says Sue Wadden, director of color marketing, Sherwin-Williams. “In the coming year, we will embrace our pioneering spirits and artisan ingenuity. Our 2019 Color of the Year, Cavern Clay, embodies renewal, simplicity and free-spirited, bohemian flair.”

Behr selected Blueprint as their color of the year, calling it “an honest, approachable color that conjures up the blueprints builders rely on to bring architectural designs to life.” As you can see in the images to the right and below, Blueprint is versatile, perfect for the inside or outside of your home. Both color selections from Sherwin Williams and Behr allow room for a modern or classic style, they are versatile colors.
Selecting one color of the year is difficult, Valspar acknowledged that by selecting twelve. In their color palette, we see shades of purple, orange, blue and green along with a neutral option.

As we wait patiently for Pantone to commit this week our minds wander as to what they will select. If history is any indicator then there really is no trend whatsoever. It could be a neutral that compliments our world with a calmness that we all seem to crave these days, or a bright bold color that invigorates our lives with surrounding energy. In our showroom lately we have discussed our predictions, somewhat hesitant to commit, so, for now, we will wait patiently with the rest of the world for the announcement, and enjoy the last few days of the UltraViolent selection from last year.
