2016 Color Forecast

Passionate pursuit. Fresh mindfulness. Vintage workmanship. Social engagement. And technology and materials that seem to come from out of this world. We’re taking the best of everything life has to offer and indulging in the moment. Prepare to come together as we go in passionate pursuit of a shared color consciousness.


The elements that remind us to live well, be well, and stay well are vital to creating spaces to unplug. Natural materials, honed and sheer. Ancient alabaster and marble hues. Warmer grays turning to khaki and blushed neutrals. New therapies draw us to the colors of nomadic sand baths and holistic massage rooms. We're awakening from the recession, hungry for a new orderliness, ready to feed the spirit, make memories, and savor the moment.


Meaningful change begins locally. Driven by social engagements as much as social media, we're coming together to rediscover the pleasures of intimate gatherings, garden parties, personalized outdoor weddings - along with playful indulgences like champagne towers and vintage florals. Multifamily living is back, and this palette connects across generations: dashing greens and cheeky pinks with a flower power that's as crisply modern as it is soulfully vintage.
