Color Trend Report Issue#1: “Chive” by Pantone and Other Delicious Green Tones.

Though it can be exhausting to keep up with trends, sometimes a little direction can be helpful.  Here’s some counsel on what’s happening with 2019 fall color trends so you feel informed when making changes around the house this season.  I’m a firm believer that there is no authority on design and though there are experts who can certainly help the self-professed ‘person without a clue’ everyone should tap into their personal preferences when making a final decision about what does or doesn’t work for their environment.  With that, I present a selection of really scrumptious colors that work well applied in a variety of ways. Warm earth tones, bright bold hues and some more muted options. Something for everyone!

A savory herbal green, Pantone ‘Chive’ imparts a healthy and restorative harmony.

This hue has a historical quality to it that looks particularly good in a matte finish.  A whole room painted would for sure create a moody vibe but could certainly be balanced with brighter colors and pattern to modernize the look.

If this tone feels too dark for painting an entire room (though it would look exquisite!) there are lots of other ways to apply it. Think accent wall, cabinets, accessories, upholstery, rugs, even furniture!
