NIGHT WATCH ANNOUNCED AS TAUBMANS 2019 COLOUR OF THE YEAR
With apartment living on the rise and people in developed countries spending 90% of their time indoors, it’s understandable why it’s important to incorporate aspects of nature into your home. With this in mind, Taubmans has the perfect solution to bring the outside in with the launch of its 2019 Colour of the Year – Night Watch.
To decipher the Colour of the Year, the makers of Taubmans hold an annual workshop bringing together over 20 global colour stylists from the automotive, consumer electronics, aerospace and home paint industries. Over the course of several days, the stylists analyse the runway trends, lifestyles, demographics, geographies and global and cross-cultural societal inspirations to determine what colours will resonate as Taubman’s global colour forecast, including the Colour of the Year.
For 2019, Taubmans is predicting green as the hot new shade with Night Watch lending itself perfectly to bring nature inside the home. The deep and sophisticated hue can be used to create balanced and harmonic spaces and is a natural progression from the pink palettes of late. Night Watch is only one of 200 colours in the 2019 Global Colour Trends Forecast which provides direction and inspiration to architects, designers and homeowners alike.
Encompassing the tones of a dense tropical jungle, Night Watch is a natural shade that is chic, effortlessly timeless, and destined to be a favourite in both the home and workplace given our urge to reconnect with nature in today’s tumultuous society.
Taubmans Colour Consultant Grace Garrett sees nature inspired tones playing a huge part in home trends in 2019.
“Green is a colour we will be seeing so much more of in 2019, from forest to sea foam and all tints and shades in between. It makes perfect sense that we are seeking to bring the calmness and soothing power of Night Watch into our decor given the trend to bring the outdoors in. From a psychological perspective, green creates an equilibrium between the head and the heart, perfect to establish a space that encompasses balance and harmony.
“Night Watch uses a tone which can be adapted to an array of styles using a variety of furniture and accessories from the velvet and marble of Hollywood Glamour to the raw, natural materials that belong to the Eclectic and
Tribal trends. In terms of a colour palette, Night Watch’s versatility means it pairs well with a multitude of tones such as Taubmans Ionian, Dusky Taupe and Rusty Rail.” concludes Grace.
Taubmans DIY and Renovation expert, Cherie Barber shows just how easy it is to transform a small space into a calming living area explaining, “The answer to a greener life indoors is as simple as letting nature in…in more ways than one. Taubmans Night Watch brings the healing power of the outdoors inside your home creating a modern yet comfortable space.
“I recently made over a small apartment using Taubmans Endure Interior in a Matt finish to maximise the depth of colour. Creating a feature wall of Night Watch and using Taubmans Crisp White on the others means that you can bounce and regulate the light in the room. If you wanted to create a cosier feel, you could even use Night Watch on all of the walls.
“To bring the space together and create the perfect place to display indoor plants and accessories inspired by nature, I created an ombré shelving feature by simply adding different amounts of Taubmans Crisp White to Night Watch. An effective and useful area to have in any small living space.”
