We Are JUST Letting Go of The Lifeless Gray Trend and Now Taking Baby Steps With Pink and Blue?

What’s happening to our world of color right now? Benjamin Moore chooses Simply White, Sherwin Williams chooses Alabaster and now Pantone followed this wishy-washy lead and went with their “Color” of the Year and choose TWO pastels. This urks me to no end.

On one hand I like the direction that these colors are going – Rose Quartz for meditation purpose and Serenity for finding the Zen in life. Not the the “gender blur” reasons that they Pantone mentioned – so I give them a little credit for trying.

On the other hand, I know these hues will not be a hit in the home as far as paint color – accessories maybe but we ALWAYS say that when a misfit color or colors are chosen for the home. Fashion sure. Retail, maybe. I actually have a purple-pink in my office for a few years now so this pink is nothing new to most of us.

When we should be choosing strong, grounding, earthy, back-to-basics colors everyone is choosing soft “don’t look at me” hues. Colors that say:

  • barely there
  • don’t look at me
  • I’m here but I’m not
  • I’m soft
  • Neutral
  • Safe
  • colorless
  • lifeless

Instead our colors should be saying:

We are JUST letting go of the lifeless gray trend and now taking baby steps with pink and blue?  These are the colors that we should be looking at:

OR

It gets to the point in one’s career that makes unrewarding to continue on when the “big wigs” make it hard to promote their colors. As usual, I will continue to walk my own color path and stand strong in the Holistic approach, the healing hues, the colors that cure.

THAT will be my focus for 2016.
