With the recent unveiling of Dulux’s Colour of the Year at ColourFutures 2016, Cherished Gold has us looking to 2016 with much anticipation and excitement.
Every year, an impressive panel of global trend forecasters and colour experts come together to review developments across an array of disciplines. Drawing upon influences such as the economy, politics, technology and the runway, they gallantly draw up palettes that define our era. Careful and considered reflection over three days results in 50-60 colours being chosen to dynamically represent these trends; with one nominated as Colour of the Year…no pressure then, Cherished Gold!
Encapsulating a broad range of yellows, this ochre shade portrays the ongoing trend of warm, metallic golden tones being used everywhere in design. However, as the 2016 palette is focused on muted, soft hues, Cherished Gold boasts a sense of sophisticated heritage.
In our humble opinion, Cherished Gold is one of kind. Its rich but subtle depth is beautifully highlighted by the sophisticated elegance it oozes with brightness. A true representation of our time, we’re eager to see how next year seeks inspiration from this wonder.
