Color Inspiration No.22: Cocoa, Toffee, Bubble Gum, Celadon, and Corn

Eclectic Trends | Color Inspiration No.22

It was only natural to get together Color Inspiration No.22 seeing all the brown and ochre shades popping up. Pink in any hue has become an omnipresent shade, and whether we intended to include it or not, had somehow to find its place too. We published earlier a brown/red combo which actually works very well too.

Brown, toffee, umber, caramel, they all have been around for a while, but the first official confirmation came with the Color Trends 2018 by Jotun featuring a warm chocolate brown. And since we have more than 3K shares of this post, we assume, you really liked them.

Our color mood focusses this time on Cocoa, Toffee, Bubble Gum, Celadon and Corn, and it looks great, both for Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter palettes.

Brown is according to a study in color psychology, the less popular shade which being so close to nature and soil, could come as a surprise. Since we have seen terracotta featured in many creative disciplines over the past 18 month, it is only natural to observe now a shift towards brown, which is not a hue, but a shade, you can not find it in any color wheel. Brown does not exist as bright or luminous but results as a mix of the three primary colors: red, yellow and blue.
