The residential neighborhood of Windermere in Seattle, Washington is known for its quiet streets and high-end dwellings. It's also home to this contemporary residence, which was remodeled by Paul Moon Design.
Every year, Pantone — the world-renowned authority of color — announces their "Color of the Year." Each shade serves as an expression of mood and attitude. It is a symbolic selection and a color snapshot of what the iconic company sees taking place in our global culture. Pantone has just announced their color of the year for 2019 — Living Coral.
We're approaching the end of the year, which means we only have two more colors left to share. This month's color trend is Chocolate, a rich, earthy tone that brings warmth to any environment. This color, whether accented in textiles, furniture, or of course, pendant lighting, is helping to define the design world we are immersed in on a daily basis.
We've entered a new month and that means we're sharing a glass color that defines the design world we are immersed in on a daily basis. This month's color trend is Storm, a deeply saturated, blue-green glass that adds sophistication to our line of Chroma colors.
Unique to the Chroma color palette, our Storm pendant lights are available in two playful shapes: the Helio and Pinch. Adding rich, blue accents, especially with Niche lighting, is a great way to add a neutral yet colorful touch that pairs beautifully with rich wood tones and warm metal finishes such as brass & gold.
At the beginning of every month, we've been sharing a color that defines the design world we are immersed in on a daily basis. Last month, we chose Smoke, a subdued shade of green. This April, we have chosen Amber, a vibrant, energizing tone of yellow, as our color of the month. According to Vogue, yellow is one of the hottest colors of the season. Its comeback is, in part, thanks to the popular complementary color purple, which Pantone, the world-renowned authority on color, chose as the 2018 Color of the Year.
The Pantone Fall 2018 Color Trend Report is the essential color guide to the season. Inspired by the designs at New York Fashion Week, Pantone's top 10 colors fully capture the need for individuality, ingenuity, and creativity. Like Pantone's colors, Niche's contemporary colored glass is influenced by the beautiful details in the world. Similar to the selected shades chosen by the world-renowned authority of color, many of Niche's signature glass hues "are being used to make very specific color statements on their own."
Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, notes, "As designers and consumers alike continue to transition away from cyclical trends, and instead focus on self-expressive colors that evade antiquated seasonal structure, we are seeing very notable non-traditional choices." Pantone's picks for the upcoming season are being categorized as "autumnal hues that evoke the feeling of leaves on the forest floor, rich plumage and twilight reveal a modern fall palette of deep and rich tones with outbursts of colorful surprise." Below, see the shades of the season paired with complementary hand-blown lighting.
At the beginning of every month, we'll be sharing a color that defines the design world we are immersed in on a daily basis. Last month, we chose Gray and White, colors that represent purity and new beginnings. For February, the dynamic reddish pink of our Rose glass seems most fitting as "Color of the Month." Traditionally, this color symbolizes softness and confidence while also alluring and engaging those who interact with it.
