All about Art #PickYourPalette
If you do follow the colours of the year, you will have seen 2018 was an edgier, more urban palette- big and bold reds, modern metallics and numerous variations of that daring statement black wall! Be ready for a big change! The palette for 2019 will reflect a need for a deeper connection, ushering in a year of mindfulness, connection to nature, tranquillity and serenity.
Many brands have already released their “colour of the year” and we have noticed a trend towards forest greens almost whites and soft terracotta. Companies are connecting the dots between consumers’ home lives, mental demands, and digital engagement, which inspired many of the colour picks.
At Artisan, we have broken it down to the #top5 colours recommended palette picks to ensure you #pickyourpalette with the right intention in mind:
1 – Deep Forest Greens
Inspired by nature these will bring the healing properties of the outdoors into the home without feeling overly arboreal! Whilst in Zimbabwe we relish the soothing effect of Mother Nature in our gardens, it doesn’t have to stop there- let nature flow in the home too for restorative healing.

Misty blues with hazy grey undertones are what we are going to see a lot of in 2019. The calming subtle grey promotes serenity, mindfulness and calm, whilst the timeless elegance of these blue/greys work well with most colours.

5 – Almost White
There’s nothing more classic than an all-white palette. And while pure white is a go-to for many homemakers, 2019 will be the year of “almost-whites.” These shades offer subtle nuances that adapt to different lighting, furniture, and surrounding colours. For those who crave a minimalist palette that still feels dynamic, an almost-white shade is a fool-proof choice.
