COLOR TRENDS | New palettes for interiors and design from Italy

How to match colors in interior design?

In this regards, today I am sharing an interesting color research recently published by Italian design brand Poltrona Frau.

Colorsphere is a new way to match and represent color palettes which follows a perceptual-emotional pathway. It is a design tool, conceived for the world of architecture and interior design, as well for all those who strive to create a harmonious and lasting relationship between spaces and furnishings.

The new color system was conceived by color designer Giulio Ridolfo to reinvent the Pelle Frau® Color System collection and can be an inspiring tool for interior designers as well. The chromatic maps reflect the fluid, rapid and interconnected world we are living now.

“Design and furnishings are part of this process: furniture and objects – and their colors – are no longer made of just one material – static, autonomous – they must instead complement and connect with each other and with the space that hosts them in an increasingly narrow visual and spatial dialogue. The perception of color has become emotional and individual, influenced as it is by the continuous relationship with other elements, by the comparison with different cultures and latitudes, and by the combination” says the Giulio Ridolfo.

Let’s see them together.

Into the Black is a journey towards deep black through a sophisticated scale of warm and cold greys, with perfectly balanced tones and inter-tones. These are the colors of the executive world, of stones, of functionalist and experimental architecture. Widely used in interiors and architecture, they allow ample freedom of combination with the most disparate materials and furnishings, without ever losing their extraordinary elegance.

The galaxy of whites shines with numerous warm and cold shades. The icy, luminous elegance of the Frozen Whites group includes four shades of cold whites inspired by the most luxurious and refined fabrics. The group of Soft Whites includes five very sophisticated shades of warm, mellow whites which give leather a diverse array of visual and emotional characteristics, from cream to porous marble.

Foundation / Palette #3

Like a thin veil of make-up that enhances the complexion, here is Foundation. The natural and subdued elegance of non-colors, of those shades that give a refined and particular tone to an entire environment without imposing a strong presence. Three light, refined and versatile shades that play between grey and beige, which recall the scent of face powder, hazelnuts or freshly baked biscuits.

Tierras is a collection of dark and light browns, colors of nature, of leather and saddle-leather par excellence. Blonde Woods, Tannery and Ever Browns recount the timeless tones of the great English tradition of clubs, fumoirs and the equestrian world. A cultured and contemporary reinterpretation that comes to explore new ranges of blonde hues inspired by precious woods and the interiors of the most exclusive luxury cars.

If they were wines, they could be called “The great reds of Poltrona Frau”. Like their counterparts in the bottle, these sumptuous and brilliant reds improve over time, acquiring richer and more precious shades over the years. Red Memories tells part of the history of the company itself, such as the red of the Vanity Fair icon that approaches Pompeian tones, or the suggestive and deep hues that recall lacquers, the cocciopesto and soft covers of ancient hand-bound volumes.

All the silent charm of a solitary jardin d’hiver seen at midnight: here is Winter Garden, which collects the magical and mysterious shades of greens and blues. Out of the Blue explores all the shades
of blue: from frozen tones to bright blues, up to the less saturated, lightest blues. The two renewed ranges of greens, Pier 1 and Tender is the Night, instead explore the intense and elegant nocturnal greens, up to the lighter, bluish, natural ones.

Back in Town / Palette #6

Color Trends from Italy 2020 2021 for interiors and design

 

Eclectic, bold, cosmopolitan: Back in Town associates colors that are not arranged according to a descending scale, combining them in a cultured and emotional way full of references.

Gion is the famous geisha district of Kyoto, one of the most exclusive and renowned in Japan. Its lights, its nightlife, its refinement are summarised in the vibrant and refined shades of purples, combined with vivid yellows. We are suddenly shifted to Paris luxury with Faubourg and its reference to the colors of French high fashion and leather goods. Ipanema is a chic neighbourhood in Rio de Janeiro overlooking the famous beach; the color refers to exotic worlds and South American and Latin panoramas.
