In announcing its Color of the Year for 2022, AkzoNobel is predicting a trend in lighter more cheery colors. Bright SkiesTM is the company’s color to watch in coatings for building and construction metal.
Bright Skies is described as a “light and airy shade” with four complementary color palettes beyond the usual mainstream shades. “The Studio palette offers soulful, warm and modern tones; the Salon palette embraces artful qualities; the Greenhouse palette revels in nature’s influence; and the Workshop palette creates flexibility in multifunctional spaces,” the company reported.
Where lies the logic beyond the selection? The color trends team at AkzoNobel explains: “After a spell of feeling shut in, people are craving expansion. Extensive global trend research conducted by a team of in-house paints and coatings color experts and international design professionals reveals that we want open air, connections to the great outdoors and a fresh approach to everything.” RF
