Commercial Color Trends for 2014

I began thinking about color when I researched the 2014 colors put out by Pantone. Their colors are used extensively for jewelry, fashion, and home decor.

 

I then began to wonder – does this same palette spill over to the commercial and hospitality industries? And, interesting to me, the Pantone colors don’t figure in at all in the commercial sector, that I could see.

 

There seems to be several palettes – put out by the various paint companies, rather than one major one that everyone follows.

For instance, the Benjamin Moore palette is very pastel and subdued – a perfect background for pops of color the designer will certainly add to it.

The Sherwin Williams palette features much stronger hues that grab your attention right away. They offer three different sets of colors – designed to work together in both the common areas and the individual rooms or offices.

The possibilities of both of these selections of colors will enhance the people who are either guests at a hotel using them, or working in an office building decorated with them.
