Globalization has had a significant impact on how we see and use colour in interiors. Pantone shares this multicultural impact with their Spring Summer 2019 New Native palette. Take a look at the forecasted direction of colour in SS19.
As people today move through life, they adopt and blend other cultures with their own. The result is a design direction that celebrates mixed influences and cross-cultural fertilization. Increasingly nomadic, our urban centers already considered cultural melting pots, are becoming progressively more diverse.
Celebration of Multicultural
Years of globalization and the movement of people, as well as product, has brought about a globalized colour palette and design aesthetic devoid of premeditation that we call the Celebration of Multicultural.
A mash-up of influences and impossible to pin down to any one starting point, the aesthetic of Celebration of Multicultural is the epitome of a celebration of diversity.
Ad-hoc curation wins, preoccupations of provenance are abandoned and designs are indiscriminately playful.
The outcome is a montage of influences: old and new, traditional and experimental, synthetic and organic.
Can you foresee yourself infusing some New Native colour into your interiors? Or will you veer more towards the 2019 home+interiors palettes?
