Yes, I know we’re already in the 2nd half of the year, but I just had to blog about this even if it’s slightly late. 🙂 Anyway, if you have spent some time on Pinterest this year, you would have noticed a trend towards warm, earthy, but slightly muted colors. No matter if Pantone declared Living Coral as the color of the year (which frankly surprised me and a lot of designers because that color already had its moment years ago), designers all over the world have gravitated towards a totally different palette the past several months.
I even thought of changing my brand colors completely, because look how pretty this is!
What do you think? Should I change it? I love the combination of dusty rose and camel!
I created a few palette samples based on pictures I took during my Budapest trip last month (more on that in another post). The warm, muted hues were all over, and there was a surfeit of inspiration, everywhere you look!
Here are this year’s most popular color trends, as embodied by the architecture and sights of Budapest:
So in love with this palette! That interior view of the Hungarian State Opera House just blew me away. I had to pick up my jaw from the floor. It’s just so beautiful!
Here’s another one that’s actually quite timeless – soft neutrals, but mixing some cool and warm tones.
We were walking from the central library and saw this pretty street. All the colors just worked really nicely together.
This is one side of Buda Castle. And yes, the pale warm hues are just perfect together. Can you imagine a stationery suite with each element in a different color in this palette? Dreamy!
Ahh, I can’t believe I live in a world where this exists. And that color palette is beautiful too!
