The Sherwin-Williams Colormix Forecast 2018 takes a turn from last year’s bold color forecast with a fresh, lighthearted palette embracing “a collision of influences” that offers a chance of creating community within our contemporary lifestyles according to Sherwin-Williams.
Sincerity, Affinity and Connectivity are the key words that reflect the Colormix Forecast 2018. A prediction towards lifestyles moving towards de-cluttering, the uncertainty of terrestrial boundaries and a desire to discover our own sense of community are the drivers behind these color palettes.
Sincerity | Less is more as we’re de-cluttering, moving more possessions into the cloud. (SW) Influencers: Silence, Instagram, Minimalism, Hygge, Norcore.
Affinity | Nationalism and globalism are in flux, challenging terrestrial boundaries. (SW) Influencers: Roaming, Transculturalism, Community, Arts and Crafts, Indigenous Patterns.
Connectivity | We’re each moving to the beat of our own algorithm. (SW) Influencers: Pop/Youth Culture, Techies, Virtual Reality, Productivity, Environmentalism.
A breath of fresh air, silence; de-cluttering yet pursuing community; inspired by technology, productivity as environmentalism takes center stage all resonate with me in this color forecast.
I love all the whites in each group but the Sincerity color palette speaks to me the loudest. What is your favorite and most likely color group for your home?
