Brentano’s tenth annual color forecast highlights refined colors from Brentano’s collection, to new, more edgy color selections that are here to stay. Three new vivacious colors (Red Rocks, Citron, and Periwinkle) add personality and excitement while evolving colors (Midnight, Almost Black, and Peacock) highlight timeless glamour.

Midnight – Romantic and elegant, Midnight has continued to be a prevalent color throughout the years. This exquisite jewel tone accommodates a tailored look making it the optimal choice for opulent interiors. 

Peacock – Celebrating a diversity of color, Peacock showcases a sensational teal with hints of majestic blue. Peacock enhances palettes with its serene nature and dimensional characteristics.

Almost Black – A new classic, Almost Black offers an alternative to jet black with subtle shades of grey. Assertive without being overbearing, Almost Black provides a foundation for complex color schemes.

Red Rocks – Channeling rust-colored sandstone cliffs, Red Rocks brings a warm western richness to any space. Subdued but exotic, Red Rocks showcases spicy orange hues highlighted by subtle ocean coral, bringing a tangible beauty to modern design.

Citron – A new color within Brentano’s collection, Citron provides bright and energetic accents to any interior. Charming and fun, Citron is earning new deserved presence in the marketplace with its unique blend of yellow and green.

Periwinkle – Periwinkle is stylish, invigorating, fresh, and vibrant. The interplay of light purples and muted blues give Periwinkle a romantic but versatile personality that’s welcoming and cool in every sense of the word.

“Classic colors continue to be popular in the industry but they have begun to evolve in a way that makes them more dynamic and interesting,” notes Brentano’s Senior Designer Aaron Mensik.
