CLEVELAND, Jan. 30, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Pratt & Lambert Paints, an industry leader in innovative and premium quality paint products, announces its four designer trend color palettes for 2019 and distinguished Color of the Year. Each of the trending palettes reflects distinct styles and attitudes driving color and interior décor for the upcoming year.
The Pratt & Lambert color design team notes a societal shift toward introspection, focus and reflection that inform its 2019 Color Forecast. The spectrum of inner exploration is embodied by its selection for Color of the Year, Ginger Scent 336-D, and four accompanying color palettes — Accelerate, Radiate, Preserve and Fulfill — featuring eight beautiful colors designed to inspire paint and décor throughout the home.
The Color of the Year, Ginger Scent, and the 2019 design trend palettes will spark design concepts, warm spaces, and provide a sophisticated contrast that adds depth to any room. The four design trend palettes inspire forward-thinking spaces and aim to connect people with their spaces in deeper, more meaningful ways.
"People are looking for colors that enable them to find peace and balance in an increasingly complicated world," said Ashley Banbury, senior color designer, Pratt & Lambert. "Our 2019 color trends and Color of the Year are inspired by the spirit of self-expression and self-reflection we see in society today. Whether they're wanting to express their independence or create a space where they can reflect and relax, design trends are very much about each individual's personal fulfillment."

Ginger Scent 336-D, a calming, soft terracotta, is a vibrant neutral that seamlessly elevates bold colors and other more intricate design elements in a space. The color represents a constant quest for self- improvement and encourages a more satisfying life. "We envision this color sparking design concepts, warming up spaces and allowing sophisticated contrast adding depth to any room," Banbury said.
