“Think pink this year, interior designers say”
“What do the next 12 months hold for interior design?
The answer is, in a word, pink.”
Whew!!! PROFESSIONALINTERIORDESIGNER has been loosing sleep as to what the next year holds for him and his chosen profession. Good thing Pantone is out there to set me straight….or gayly forward. I know color forecasting is a major industry and color is a major aspect of the visual environment….I get that but come on it is decoration and it is based on fashion and trends- PROFESSIONALINTERIORDESIGNER believes this is another point of distinction between those who simply care about how things look vs. those who are concerned with how long things last, where they came from, where they are going and whether they are an essential component of an interior environment that actually improves people’s lives and/or livelihoods. That’s why PROFESSIONALINTERIORDESIGNER’S favorite color is clear!
No wonder people do not take us seriously.
“Pink is intense and focused on the now. It’s young, but not too young.”
“…pink ‘elevates our psyche beyond escape, instilling the confidence, courage and spirit to meet the exhaustive challenges that have become part of everyday life.’”
“Flirtatious, light-hearted and girly cute,” Aaaarrrrggghhhh!
“Just be prepared for a fling rather than a long-term relationship, Bayer cautioned. “I think it’s going to be a short-lived trend.”
