We talk about trends for fashion and interior decor, today we are going to show you the floor trends for the next year 2019. You can expect to see marbles, granites, and limestones. Nature creates a color palette that is generally cool, you will also see emerging warmth from luxurious onyx, Emperador Dark Marble and wood species like walnut. So for 2019 Color Forecast are Nature’s Neutrals.
Eclipse is a shadowy black that works best in premium-quality hardwood where the grain is straighter, certainly no application on a rotary cut hardwood.
Again like a shadow or an eclipse, there is no reflective quality to the darkness, simply matte darkness, velvety, if anything, in its appearance.
2. Emperador Dark Brown
Emperador Dark Marble is a rich brown marble that can change from slab to slab depending on how much and where the white veins run. Rich browns are on the horizon in hardwood flooring in the form of rich matte chocolate browns, especially in the walnut species. Walnut, in the right color family of brown, is and always will be timeless and salable. Overall, one of the walnut’s best attributes is that it can be mixed in with a variety of design styles and with a variety of other surfaces.
3. Bermuda Stone Gray
Gray is enjoying a very long and successful lifespan. Gray continues to reign strong in every consumer goods category as a go-to neutral, backdrop blank-canvas type color, which bridges easily with other colors and also serves well in a wide range of design styles from mid-century modern to rustic farmhouse. Gray continues to become more and more refined as it evolves and have segued into that look and feel that is silvery, patinaed, and aged, yet smooth in texture.
4. French Limestone
The chicest hardwood color is in the same family as reclaimed French limestone. A quarried look and feel is the target texture. Not quite scraped, not quite wire-brushed, not quite chiseled, this actual color creates its warmth through the just right off-white with zero yellow, zero pinks, just warm like the stone you’d see in an old château in France.
5. Sea Salt White
Speaking from recent experience of admiring the Bermuda sands on a recent trip, Sea Salt off-whites are akin to a mist with hints of color only from reflections of the surf and sand. Looking to find off-whites, you can certainly find similar influences from my mega trend of plaster-gesso whites.
In keeping with gesso and plaster, Sea Salt is matte, and more importantly is not flat, nor opaque.
