Since I'm always looking for new paint colors, I'm always curious what the new Color of the Year will be. And this year, I seem to be the only person that likes the new 2015 Colors! Everyone awaits the annual color announcements to see what new palette trends they will provoke. The color will introduce new paint combos, textiles, wallpapers and accessories for the coming year. This year Pantone launched their new color - Marsala. Forbes magazine says it "evoked bodily fluids and decrepit buildings". And they claim social media calls it "a color that makes you want to go to Olive Garden or order tampax in bulk". Hmmm......and I thought it was quite nice!
For a more global perspective, AkzoNobel , the world's largest color and coatings manufacturer, has named its color of the year Copper Orange. It's a warm shade and per their press release: "Replacing the cool blues and greens of recent years, a warmer spectrum of pinks, reds and oranges is emerging, reflecting a more positive global outlook".
I really like the warmth of both these colors and think they're a cozy choice (maybe it's more appealing in winter!). But what do you think? Love them? Or Hate them?
