It is the year of the subdued palette. For 2015 the colors are neutralized and on the warmish side, rugged even––more Bette Davis than Doris Day (or, more Taylor Momsen than Katy Perry––whichever generation applies). The reds are bloody, the green is wan, the grays are warm and slate-y, and the whites are off and pinkish: in other words, classic style.
Paint manufacturer Benjamin Moore will explain it all at West Week with a lecture on the transformative nature of color on interior design as well as discussing color trends for the year.
It has been declared that 2015 is the year of Guilford Green.
Guilford Green transmits an energy that is both relaxed and vibrant. Just the color for a sitting room or kitchen.
As the year of the subdued palette, the spring colors are restrained as well. Color saturations are down as tones venture into pastel-like territory.
