Pantone has released the color of the year 2016, and for the first time it is not one color but two. Or actually the blending between these two shades that are chosen to be the color of the year. I think that they are spot on, we do see a lot of blendings, gradients and iridescence coming. I have gathered some examples of this that I have spotted recently.
Bologna, also known as “la cittá rossa” – the red city – referring to the colors of the buildings but also to the political preference of many bolognesi. The earthy red is beautiful and present everywhere, from the color of the bricks to the color of the terrazzo on the pavements. I love the patterns that is created in terrazzo mixing stones in various sizes and colors with colored cement. We start to see more and more terrazzo in interiors and furniture. My favourite are these tables by Frama in Copenhagen. http://www.framacph.com
I think we will see a lot more of terrazzo to come, to quote the queen of swedish design blogs Lotta Agaton “terrazzo is the new Carrara”.
Love the color range of these metal trays from Ferm Living.
I can warmly recommend the book about Scholten & Baijings, the masters of gradients, fadings and neon accents. I really like that they are showing so much of their creative process. This book is a must for every CMF designer!
The ISBN is 9780714868714 if you want to buy the book.
Christmas is getting closer and I can’t wait to get started to decorate at home. I want to keep it simple and my main decoration is flowers, greenery and lighting off course.
I love the Burgundy red color and I’m thinking of combining it with a faded pink and silver green.
I see a lot of dark reds in shades of wine. Blurry Burgundy or faded Marsala.
Marsala was selected the color of the year 2015 by Pantone.
sage, mustard and blueberries (or something blue..)
Today I have anxiety about deciding what colors to use in my new bathroom! So many choices, so many beautiful colors… But I do know that I want colored tiles, I am sooo bored with all the black and white.
