Color Trends 2011+

  1. 2. Anticipating the future of design and understanding market shifts are keys to success for architects and interior designers. Success comes through knowledge and at DuPont we are committed to supporting future design by sharing our research.   An essential component of this understanding is an in-depth color trend forecast. DuPont in collaboration with world-renowned Global Color Research ™ , an international color trend forecasting agency headquartered in London, has determined the key decorative trends and colors that will drive the interior design market from 2011 to 2013.
  2. 3. This work is based on a thorough review of the current social, economic, technological and environmental factors that are affecting the human psyche and driving what we want from color and design. Based on these insights, Global Color Research ™ presents four color trends for TWENTY11+. Each of these trends includes a color palette with relevant DuPont ™ Corian ® solid surface and Zodiaq ® quartz surface options, mood imagery and rationale.   With this information, you can make a considered response to change that will enable you to provide your clients with inspired designs that will not only delight them, but also bolster your reputation.

  20. 40. <ul><li>Global political and economic crises continue to be driving forces for what people want from color and design. In addition, our relationship with the natural environment continues to develop and it is becoming increasingly more important to recreate, or even invent, our past rural idylls within urban environments. Appreciation of genuine craftsmanship continues but the boundaries of traditional design are being pushed by the introduction of new materials and applications. </li></ul><ul><li>The first trend, Origin, is a tactile trend that focuses on the varied nuances and perfect designs found in nature to bring a sensibility that most have forgotten in their hectic modern lives. The subtle palette that includes taupe with rich undertones is energized by bright accents of citrus orange and plum. </li></ul><ul><li>The second trend, Depth, is simultaneously an amalgamation of styles coupled with a sleek and smooth saturated finish. It is truly an embodiment and embracement of water. Rich, deeply saturated blue forms the foundation of this color palette, coupled with cool foam tones and white highlights. </li></ul>
  21. 41. <ul><li>The third trend, Treasure, is a new generation of luxury inspired by the excess of the early millennium. It is luxury with a conscience, embodying the modern fascination with quality, craftsmanship and material appreciation—delivered subtly. The versatile palette is as diverse as the global cultures that inspire this trend. Pinks and deep purples join with soft reflective colored metals, micas and matte gold to send a dignified message of quiet opulence. </li></ul><ul><li>The fourth trend, Authentic, explores the relationship between genuine materials. Wood, composites and plastics are equally important. This extreme palette of hyper primaries is balanced by muted North American naturals. Tied together by icy white and matte silver, this optimistic palette moves quite firmly toward a utopian future. </li></ul>
  22. 42. <ul><li>Neutrals make up one-third of the total spectrum of 32 colors for 2011 to 2013. DuPont ™ Corian ® solid surfaces and Zodiaq ® quartz surfaces with speckled texture provide a great range of subtle color, giving them more personality than flat grays. The warmer neutrals, ranging from black to cream, are expected to grow beyond TWENTY11+. In the warm section of this spectrum, the reds are rich and fiery while there’s a certain element of coolness in the pink and orange areas, and the gold is a subtle soft matte. There are only three greens, all of which are rich, true green. The blues are generally on the cool side and are some of the more powerful saturated colors for TWENTY11+. </li></ul>
  23. 43. Color trends are continually evolving because they are driven by ever-changing social, economic, technological and environmental factors. Staying well informed of color trend forecasts is a key to success for architects and interior designers because it enables them to anticipate client preferences and deliver inspired designs that reflect their knowledge and creativity.
