The second palette in Sherwin-Williams' 2010 color forecast is what they're calling Simplified. In an homage to three women I admire a great deal, I propose that we call it the Joni Webb, Gina Milne and Brooke Gianetti palette. These muted, luxurious colors always remind me of them. Look through all three of their blogs and you'll see what I mean. They espouse a simple elegance that these colors really capture. I'm calling this palette a spot on prediction. From Sherwin-Williams' website:
translucent, structure, sophisticated
"Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication." That timeless wisdom from Leonardo da Vinci is now a modern mantra. Less is clearly the new more. But the aesthetic is artful rather than austere, with well-tailored lines and sheer, translucent materials that reveal shape and structure. Clarity and integrity are critical. We need to know and trust what we're bringing into our environments. The hues are calm, subtle and nuanced, with undertones that shift according to their surroundings, for easy versatility.
How now do you think these are? How lasting do you think this palette will be?
