2000-2017 Color TrendsIn The Devil Wears Prada Miranda Priesly goes on a beautiful lecture about the importance of color and how Cerulean affects Andy's fashion choices. Whether we know it or not, these color predictions have an impact on our decisions across fashion and interiors. Most of us can remember when each and everyone of these colors were everywhere, from our wardrobes to our livingroom walls.
In 2003 Aqua Sky was a bright, cheery and hopeful shade of blue. Calming and cool, Pantone chose this blue in hopes to restore hope and serenity.
In 2007 Pantone examined how we expressed our individuality; "from a cell phone to a web page on a social networking site" people were beginning to go bold when expressing their individuality. This bold red is a color that makes a statement and can't be missed, whilst being sophisticated and enticing. Chili Pepper is an outgoing, confident, design-savvy hue. That's how you would describe 2007, right?
This festive reddish pink is nostalgic for the carefree days of spring and summer. Pantone chose Honeysuckle as the color of the year for 2011 to lift our spirits in times of stress.
In 2015 Marsala was everywhere, and we're not talking about wine (though on second thought... yum). This robust and earthy wine red tone was chosen by Pantone to enrich our minds, bodies and souls. An elegant, full-bodied and impactful statement color; Marsala is a hearty and stylish tone that added elegance to rooms across acessories and paint.
