sherwin williams 2014 color of the year

The New Year brings with it many changes, color trends being one of the changes designers watch each year. Celebrate by giving the kids’ rooms a new coat of paint, updating an old furniture piece with a new finish, or reupholstering that worn out chair in the corner in one of the 2014 colors.

Sherwin-Williams 2014 Color Forecast has “Four distinct palettes reflecting the world around us: from rich, luminous and luxurious to mysterious, elemental and earthy.”  The new palettes to watch are called Reasoned, Intrinsic, Curiosity, and Diaphanous.

Intrinsic is so well suited to active kidspaces like the playroom or bathroom. (I am sure to use it on projects this year!)  The other three palettes will work nicely in kids’ bedrooms…..from baby nursery to teen rooms, boys as well as girls.

See the images below to get a feel for the 2014 trends…..then try your hand at combining the new colors.

REASONED – Gray is the new black. Shadows, tone-on-tone, and negative space become more important in design.

INTRINSIC – Earthy, folkloric, handmade Bohemianism. Preserving culture in an increasingly blended world.

CURIOSITY – Where oddities are fascinating and bizarre becomes desirable. When weird organic patterns, textures, and colors mix.

DIAPHANOUS – A soft gleam, a veiled view, gently blurred. Simplicity and strength combined in luxury, tempered by softness.

There’s the soft side. There’s the logical side. There’s the strange side that ‘s still a little wonderful and the homemade side that’s a little more ethnic. That’s what you get in 2014 color trends.
