Nothing evolves faster in the interiors industry than color. As has been studied, each color has a psychological meaning. Over the years, colors trends have been a mirror representing the changing psychological influences of politics, economy, and culture.
The rough economy in the late 2000’s to early 2010’s brought with it the minimalist desire and “wanting to escape”. This feeling produced calm and safe color pallets. The colors of those last few years were dominated by the monochromatic and neutrals, predominately cool gray and white with muted accents of spa-like blues and greens.
The colors we see in the trends today are turning warmer and bolder. Historically, this is typically tied to a flourishing economy, as we are experiencing more of these days.
We have been seeing that the metals are turning from silver to gold, showing more affluence. The cool grays that have dominated interiors are turning to warmer and richer neutrals, such as dove gray, taupe, sand and even rosy and gold shaded neutrals.
Neutrals have become more dramatic. Black and Navy are strong in design today.
In healthcare, the monochromatic schemes still dominate because of the calm they produce. But the trend will be more accent colors that are bolder and unusual.
Specifically, purples, violets, and fuchsias, the hot pepper reds, and the deep, ocean-inspired green-blues are emerging more and more.
Looking back in history, these colors are reminiscent of the jewel tones from the late 1980’s and early 1990’s. As we know, although the variety of colors are infinite, they will repeat themselves – usually with a twist.
We are excited to continue incorporating new and classic colors into our designs for the Chiropractic and holistic healthcare industry. We believe that design in this market should be exciting and inviting, with a blend of retail and hospitality mixed in.
