2015 Color Swatches from ElleDecor.com
And now for my Color of the Year Prediction! Robert Allen thinks it is going to be Calypso Blue. I agree on the blue factor, but I think the chosen shade is going be a bit darker and more saturated. We haven't had a deep blue in a while. The blues of the past have all been on the aqua or pastel side. I don't think it's going to be a shade of green. We just had Emerald in 2013. If it's green again, fine, but that's not very creative.
I think the color of the year will be Dazzling Blue or Snorkel Blue. These are brighter variations of Classic Blue and they represent the mindset of 2015. In 2015, there will be a greater focus on ethics in business and society. Blue is the color of loyalty and trust. You can count on the color blue. In a way, it's also the color of unity. We all have the color blue in common, with the sky and the ocean. Why not choose a color that represents the hue of our planet?
