2014 Color Inspirations From Pantone

Pantone just announced new 2014 color inspirations for interior design. The palettes are great for inspiring design color choices, too. My three favorite palettes are Physicality, Tribal Threads and Collage. You can learn more about Pantone’s picks here.

As the name implies, Physicality speaks to the colors of power and energy counterbalanced by the presence of hues that express the necessity for introspection and calmness. The stamina of forged iron, satellite gray, antique moss and gothic olive are interplayed with the healing shades of herbal lavender, grayed grape, rosy brown and a quieting, ephemeral foggy gray – all presenting a challenging, yet invigorating, game change.

We are all members of tribes, whether through cultural background, religion, political affiliation or community. The colors in Tribal Threads are as varied as the tribal diversity they represent, yet they construct a universal linkage of artistic appreciation rooted in personal expression. Color combinations may be disarmingly simple or as complex as inter-woven threads. Neutrals, such as bleached sand and kangaroo brown, highlight an exotic arabesque burnt orange, while goblin blue is flavored by curry and peppercorn.  A rose-dusted cedar shade is set off by taupe-toned incense.

Collage is a gathering place for found objects that are well worn and somewhat nostalgic – a charming mélange of artfully constructed designs that demonstrate ingenuity and resourcefulness. There is poignancy in the color and design of the palette that sounds a familiar chord. Tea rose, deep reddish rhubarb, warm pumpkin spice and cozy sheepskin, are refreshed with margarita green, provincial blue and cascading tones of aqua and teal.
