Why I’m So Excited About The Color WHITE

White??? WOW!!!

 

Sherwin-Williams just announced its 2016 Color of the Year and it’s OFF WHITE!

Just like Benjamin Moore’s 2016 Color of the Year!

 

How EXCITING!!!

whites - colors of the year

white, white, everywhere!

Looks like 2016 will be devoid of color completely!!! Everywhere you look, it’ll be just like your first apartment, where you weren’t allowed to paint the walls! That will totally make me feel young again – how about you?

YIPPEE!!!

Are you as excited for the colors of 2016 as I am?

All this white just may put me outta the paint color consultation business, you know. Looks like my work is done – no more real color needed! Sorry for the short post, but I’ve been so excited since I heard the news that I have to go take a nap now. zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

LOL! I can’t wait for Pantone to make its big announcement. If they have half a brain, they’ll choose a deep rich blue. Blue and white. duh. We shall have to see…

Now that was a good chuckle lol! No worries. Even whites can be messed up if not done correctly. We’ll be lining up in droves to hire you to fix our tone on tone decor dilemmas. In the meantime, enjoy the bon bons…and the calm before the storm, haha!! 🙂

I would love to have been a fly on the wall during those deliberations. What were they thinking? Pathetic and a charter for designers to become even lazier.

Now Pantone can come out with “Cream”, and we will have the whole palette.

Good post, Kristie! Lol Actually, I like off whites. I find them calming and a great backdrop for colourful art, cushions, etc. But… I think most people will still want some colour in their lives, so I don’t think you need to start job hunting just yet. ?

I have a color question Kristie. First wow white ho hum. Second could you look at the Houzz.com/new old welsh house Charlotte color in the foyer? It is a PPG paint that they say is custom. It is so pretty and I am looking for a green tinged gray like it. Maybe you could lead me in the right direction with some suggestions?

Thanks for the laugh! White has it’s neutral place, but like Claude would say, “color is my daylong obsession, joy and torment!” 😉

Oh sigh, but I love color….I guess fabrics, art and accessories will have to make up for it. Just like the fashion industry, styles and trends come and go in order to sell the new things. As for me, I will just go back to my cave and hibernate until color comes back. Kristie you know color and paint better than anyone. So not to worry, you will always be in demand and many will want the new neutrals and whites. I know you will do a fabulous job at it !

I absolutely agree, Kristie!! All I could think of when I heard BM’s announcement was that this has got to be an “Emperor’s New Clothes” situation. WHITE!?! NO! Oh, well yeah white….. Ok, sure. Yes I love white!!!

I’d love to hear what you would pick for color of the year!

They must have been tired of picking colors and decided to take a break for 2016.

You know what would look lovely with all that white? A nice splash of Marsala. 😉

I like the idea of white being the color of 2016. This adds more pressure when designing, since one needs to come up with other bright ideas of making a space appealing. 🙂 Plus, Scandinavian design, which I totally adore, is all about white, so I think this will be in the center of design for next year. 🙂 I see that you love design so much, so let me dive you into our rug world. Although color defines us, our light color rugs are one of the most beautiful. All these are created by lady artisans in Nepal, Morocco… Read more »
