2009 Color Forcast - Interior Design

Are you thinking about new colors and interior design for 2009? The color forecast for 2009 is being influenced by everything from street style and consumer electronics to botanical and mineral hues. According to Jackie Jordan, Director of color from Sherwin-Williams, those influences are converging in new and surprising ways, resulting in a complex, sophisticated palette. Here’s what you should be on the look-out for:
  • Natural flower and root dyes
  • Red and gold inspired by the Beijing Summer Olympics
  • Raw, natural materials
  • Mineral hues (Mother of Pearl, warm metallic shades)
  • Sassy beige
  • Violets and plums will continue their regal influence
  • Deep blues
  • Muddier more yellow based greens
  • Warm grays
  • Mock croc is the pattern to have this year
