The Colors of 2018
Paint maker Valspar has revealed the Colors of the Year for 2018.
Instead of a one-size-fits-all Color of the Year, Valspar offers 12 that can accommodate different lifestyles and preferences.
Curated thoughtfully from Valspar’s endless color possibilities, they represent trending lifestyle influences from culture, fashion, design and technology.
From colors that invoke healing and hygge, to those that spark passion and energy, Valspar’s 12 Colors of the Year give consumers the confidence to discover and express their own style.
The 2018 Valspar Colors of the Year are available at Lowe’s, Ace Hardware and independent retailers nationwide.
These colors include:
A return to analog. We seek experiences and things we can hold in our hand to feel connected and comforted.
Melding of man and machine. There is a desire to make our machines more human with AI and voice control. As man becomes more automated, we strive to retain our humanity.
JOMO replacing FOMO. There is no fear, only the joy of missing out. Our home is a retreat as we accept our reliance on tech, but seek to re-connect with each other.
Hugs and hygge. Living well and everyday togetherness. Creating moments to savor.
Healing and peace. Looking for a sanctuary for inner peace, holistic healing and spirituality. We draw from a mix of eastern and western influences to find our balance.
Mono-tasking. Moving away from the “always on” we need a singularity of focus on what’s most important, escaping a multi-tasking world.
The real thing. Natural is preferred over synthetic. Food and fashion lead the way in eliminating artificial products and dyes.
Dig in. A resurgence in gardening and the nurturing of nature. It feeds our need to grow and provide – and respect our planet.
Quest for our best. We are all about self-optimization and looking for ways to monitor and improve on our progress.
Well-traveled. We are explorers, not tourists – and we travel with a purpose. We are looking for meaningful experiences at home and away.
New luxury is all about access. We want knowledge, experiences and culture. Belonging to something special.
Free to Be. The power that is achieved by being true to yourself. It is the strength of femininity that we are embracing.
