The design industry awaits, with great anticipation, the launch of the important trend colors that will influence our fashion statements for the new year. With home décor now paralleling runway fashion so closely, incorporating these colors into your wardrobe as well as your home attests to your fashion savvy. In York’s design center we remain attuned to the large space commitment that wallpaper represents in the home, and as such, we have targeted luxurious trend color Mink as the stellar supporting actress to the flash and dazzle of this year’s seasonal bright stars.
Pantone is one of the great color authorities, influencing markets at practically every level. Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2015 is Marsala. Full bodied, intensely rich and multi faceted, it ranges from amber to garnet and is described as hearty and unifying. In home décor it lends itself to more liberal use than past Color of the Year options and when married to York’s Mink palette, becomes a sophisticated accent befitting its luxurious backdrop.
Soft gold and warm white continue to build influence in the home décor market. Pearls and opalescence guarantee an air of refinement that surpasses bolder bling. Married to Mink’s chameleon nature these mineral hues create stunning new neutrals pleasing to the most discerning of tastes. Select a warmer version of Mink to pair with golden tones, and a cooler version to accompany whites, or incorporate all three for truly stunning decor. The contrast of matt and shimmer is always a winning combination, as evident in many of York’s artistically crafted wallpaper designs.
Sherwin Williams Color of the Year for 2015 is a warmly rich and organic hue: Coral Reef. “Upbeat and optimistic, Coral Reef celebrates a time for renewal and is the perfect mélange of pink, orange and red that can be used to liven up any space.” A wonderful accent to many neutrals, Coral Reef is enriched by pairing with York’s Mink. Achieve a soft glow with an organic wallpaper accent that highlights warm Coral and shadows with Mink on a pristine field, or try a bold splash of Coral balanced with a backdrop of sueded Mink, even an edgy geometric design that divides the balance of power equally between the two shades is stylishly eye catching!
Everyone loves the teal family. Over the last few years we’ve been engaged by true turquoise, teal, sea glass and now Peacock. Rich and almost jewel-like, Peacock has depth of character that insists upon an equally grand and rich compliment, making it the perfect accent to York’s Mink tone. This well received pairing provides many design style options from organic wildflower motifs to renewed classics to cutting edge geometrics multi layered with intricate lattice and ogee designs.
Benjamin Moore’s Guildford Green (HC-116) is their 2015 Color of the Year. “A neutral color that is a natural. A silvery green that works a wide range of color combinations – from neutrals to daring shades.” As a green with subtle silver highlights it has a sheen that marries well with the luxury of Mink. Soothing and sophisticated, this pairing is the epitome of graceful good taste. Like York’s color of the year, Guilford Green also has a chameleon quality; this picks up and absorbs the earthier tones of Mink, shifting the green into a more yellow base that is delightfully deep.
Whatever your design style or accent color preference, take a closer look at the various shades of Mink that York offers; wrap your walls with a wardrobe of soothing luxury and be prepared to be impressed!
