CHICAGO – Pantone, an X-Rite company and the global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design industries, today unveiled PANTONE® VIEW home + interiors 2015, a compendium of major color trends that will influence the home and interiors marketplace in 2015. Containing nine key trend palettes, plus individual color and material direction, PANTONE VIEW home + interiors arms home furnishings and interior designers with the critical color information they need to appeal to consumers.

Pantone Names 2015 Color Trends for Home Furnishings and Interior“Consumer preferences, behaviors and lifestyles are constantly evolving spawning a desire for fresh color palettes in both home and interior design,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “While rigid color rules have been replaced by more creative guidelines, style and color coordination in the home remains a consistent goal. The PANTONE VIEW home + interiors 2015 forecast can validate some pre-conceived color choices, while also giving new color inspiration and direction.”

PANTONE VIEW home + interiors 2015 contains visual inspiration, suggested color harmonies, individual tear-out palette cards for each of the nine forecasted palettes, swatches of the 72 forecasted colors, and images from the forecast for use in presentations and storyboards. Highlighting additional insight and direction, a summary page concludes the forecast with a comprehensive color overview and a look at other factors influencing the world of home furnishings and interior environments. To enable digital design, PANTONE VIEW home + interiors 2015 also includes PANTONE COLOR MANANGER for direct download of all PANTONE Color Libraries into design software.

The nine palettes for 2015 are: Style-Setting, Abstractions, Botanicum, Zensations, Urban Jungle, Tinted Medley, Past Traces, Serendipity and Spontaneity.

As high fashion is often a forerunner to styling for home furnishings in line, design, texture and color, the taste-making palette called Style-Setting is all about poise, finesse and polish. The elegance of the purple family adds a dramatic interplay against classic mahogany, off-white, gray and taupe, along with subtly shimmering frosted almond and champagne beige.

PANTONE 14-1012 Champagne Beige

PANTONE 19-3325 Wood Violet

PANTONE 19-1420 Deep Mahogany

PANTONE 18-3224 Radiant Orchid

PANTONE 18-4005 Steel Gray

PANTONE 13-1012 Frosted Almond

PANTONE 17-1311 Desert Taupe

PANTONE 11-1001 White Alyssum

Abstractions unleashes the inner artist, similar to the formulation of abstract art where styling might seem randomly gathered, forming a mosaic of differing shapes and many of them geometric. Colors such as grape and apricot, dahlia red, stonewashed blue, hazel nut brown and vineyard green seem to come from equally disparate places, but when brought together create an artistic whole.

PANTONE 16-1518 Rosette

PANTONE 19-1555 Red Dahlia

PANTONE 19-4342 Seaport

PANTONE 19-4342 Crushed Grape

PANTONE 17-1143 Hazel

PANTONE 14-1120 Apricot Illusion

PANTONE 17-3917 Stonewash

PANTONE 18-0117 Vineyard Green

Botanicum is a palette lifted directly from the complexities of flora and foliage, forming intriguing groupings filled with succulent shadings of green, grape and café au lait, most often counter-balanced with dusty or smoky tones of blue and orchid. When used together, a sophisticated, yet inherently natural palette emerges.

PANTONE 16-0840 Antique Moss

PANTONE 16-4010 Dusty Blue

PANTONE 18-1710 Grape Nectar

PANTONE 17-1227 Café au Lait

PANTONE 17-3612 Orchid Mist

PANTONE 18-3410 Vintage Violet

PANTONE 15-2210 Orchid Smoke

PANTONE 17-0207 Rock Ridge

The palette titled Zensations truly engages and heightens the senses as it displays a literal “enlightenment” by taking the thoughtful, meditative qualities of the blue and blue-green family to more visceral level by adding a compelling red, an atmospheric green as well as sparkling silver and gold.

PANTONE 15-0927 Pale Gold

PANTONE 14-5002 Silver

PANTONE 19-3810 Eclipse

PANTONE 19-3952 Surf the Web

PANTONE 17-4139 Azure Blue

PANTONE 19-4526 Blue Coral

PANTONE 19-2033 Anemone

PANTONE 17-6212 Sea Spray

An Urban Jungle transforms rustic chaos into something “civilized” and sylvan – speaking more of big city living than that of a wild terrain. Rather than consistently rough textured, contours are smoother and colors a combination of both typical and atypical jungle hues. Warm animal skin tones are set against the modernity of deep blue-greens, a vibrant greenish yellow, plus black and white.

PANTONE 18-4718 Hydro

PANTONE 14-0740 Bamboo

PANTONE 17-1340 Adobe

PANTONE 18-1447 Orange Rust

PANTONE 16-0940 Taffy

PANTONE 13-1009 Biscotti

PANTONE 19-4008 Meteorite

PANTONE 11-0601 Bright White

Tinted Medley is truly a harmonious composition of closely related, deliciously warm tones with peach and pink striking the main chord. Bellini, apricot wash, peach amber and macadamia are compatible blends, while powdered roses and yellows underscore and support the perfect pitch of an ethereal rosy-taupe.

PANTONE 14-1506 Rose Smoke

PANTONE 12-0619 Dusty Yellow

PANTONE 13-1114 Bellini

PANTONE 14-1230 Apricot Wash

PANTONE 15-1506 Etherea

PANTONE 14-1316 Dusty Pink

PANTONE 15-1423 Peach Amber

PANTONE 12-0709 Macadamia

Past Traces honors history in the home, holding on to some vestige of the past is deeply satisfying and reassuring. The look ranges from gently worn to contemporized adaptations – still many of the colors with names like pastel parchment, cameo green, faded denim and dusty cedar, capture a vintage feel.

PANTONE 11-0603 Pastel Parchment

PANTONE 15-1516 Peach Beige

PANTONE 14-6312 Cameo Green

PANTONE 17-4021 Faded Denim

PANTONE 16-1406 Atmosphere

PANTONE 15-4712 Marine Blue

PANTONE 18-1630 Dusty Cedar

PANTONE 18-0328 Cedar Green

The literal meaning of Serendipity is “a pleasant surprise” or “a happy accident.” In the parlance of styling, it is the coming together of unlikely designs and unexpected colors. An outgoing orange engages cool eggshell blue, while bright chartreuse is enhanced by a yellow gold and hot pink embraces a lofty scarlet – all under the watchful gaze of a tiger’s eye taupe.

PANTONE 16-1363 Puffin’s Bill

PANTONE 19-1559 Scarlet Sage

PANTONE 17-2036 Magenta

PANTONE 17-3020 Spring Crocus

PANTONE 14-4809 Eggshell Blue

PANTONE 17-1038 Tiger’s Eye

PANTONE 14-0445 Bright Chartreuse

PANTONE 15-1050 Golden Glow

Irrepressible fun is what the Spontaneity palette delivers. Just as the name implies, it is the stuff that spur-of-the-moment, impulse buying is all about, with whimsical design and unique color mixtures a large part of the attraction. Happy hues of Sunkist coral, marigold and delicious cantaloupe are complemented by the exuberance of kelly green and floral accents of hyacinth, violet quartz, winsome orchid or misty jade.

PANTONE 14-3206 Winsome Orchid

PANTONE 17-1736 Sunkist Coral

PANTONE 13-6008 Misty Jade

PANTONE 15-1239 Cantaloupe
