Looking Ahead to Spring 2015 Color Trends

A Fresh Palette of Color Trends for the New Year

MarsalaEach year we look forward to a new set of emerging colors to guide fashion, accessories and home decor. This year we have been reveling in a vivid and inspiring palette, dominated by the Pantone 2014 color of the year, Radiant Orchid. Looking ahead to Spring 2015, when the runways light up with fresh trends and fun themes for the year ahead, we see a palette of softer shades on the horizon. The color of the Year for 2015 has been declared Marsala, named for the rich Italian wine. The hue is warm and comforting, with earthy undertones of red wine. It is elegant, tasteful, and translates well to a wide array of sophisticated accents for the home, design and fashion textiles. Learn more about this grounded and welcoming hue from the Pantone color experts themselves.

Have you ever wondered “who picks these colors, anyways? What gives them the right to declare the hottest colors of the future?” Well, its a fair question, but it is amazing how the true color experts have made color trend prediction into a science. They study design movements from around the globe and work with groups of talented and creative thought leaders to come up with a surprisingly accurate picture of emerging color patterns. Here is the rest of the Pantone palette, followed by the predictions from the Trend Theme committee at Heimtextil 2015. Note the consistency of soft, natural hues with attractive neutrals and the same rich blue – and of course marsala! Coincidence? We think not.

Pantone 2015 colors of the year color trend prediction

Heimtex Color Trends Heimtex color trends 2015

The palette is influenced by layered vegetable dyes for new natural shades and the refreshing simplicity of stepping outside into “plain air”. These speak to an escape from the stress of overly-complex, hyper connected technology of modern life. Soft hues soothe the mind and create a sanctuary. Many of the colors are named for whole foods, like strawberry,and toasted almond.

Designing a Den with Retro Mod Appeal

A Mad Men Inspired Decor

Don’t you just love the word den? It has such a cozy connotation. A den can be a mix between a living room and an office, and it also can serve as a man cave. When decorating in a den, you want to be sure that the furnishings are an inviting mix of comfort and style. Our dream den du jour would have a Mad Men feel, where mid century modern elements mixed with traditional pieces in a rich palette of reds and golds and deep wood finishes.
Mad Men Inspired Den Retro Mod Man Cave with Vintage Picks from Chairish

We created a style board for our den featuring an eclectic mix of old and new. Have you heard of Chairish? It is an online consignment shop where design-obsessed people can buy and sell exceptional pre-owned home furnishings. It is a fabulous place to find authentic vintage furniture and search for groovy one-of-a-kind pieces. How fabulous is that vintage 1940s slipper chair?! We found it on Chairish, along with all of the other vintage items in this board. With a low, mid century modern dresser as a credenza, and the Atheneum Antique Books wallpaper from the Oxford Mens wallpaper collection, the room has a distinguished air of intellect and sophistication. The traditional Persian rug adds a layer of comfort and global chic warmth. For accessories we chose a  vintage George Nelson walnut spike wall clock and a brass globe, both from Chairish as well. The library style floor lamp looks like it could be vintage but it is from Jonathan Adler’s new lighting collection. Finallhy, the potted ficus brings a fresh touch of life to the room so that the space will never feel lonely. Below are a few more dens that we love for inspiration!

Rustic Inspired

The combination of weathered wood coordinated alongside wrought-iron details, brings a rustic, rough-hewn appearance to décor that’s both organic and elegant. To achieve this natural vibe in your room, look for pieces where the wood is unrefined and the metal has an antique allure.
