I am the handyman of the house. If not for my petite frame and high pitched voice, I would have passed as a boy when I was a kid. I used to help my father when he does tinkering at home fixing stuff. To a point I got cigarette burns on my right hands because I was eagerly trying to see what my father does and how to do it.
Up until I was in highschool all the way to college I inheritted the handyman role since my dad is already old aged by then. I do the installing of floors, knobs, tiny electrical details and house painting. In fact had I not been a communication arts student, I would have been an interior design student.
When I was invited to a color trends events for living spaces by a paint company, I got excited. Once in awhile I like to see new interior design and innovations. I get invited to some interior design trend shows and exhibits only I was not able to attend because of my schedule conflicts.
Anyway, this color trend for living spaces is first of this kind of events I have heard of in the paint industry. Since it was the start of the year I thought it would be nice to come.
If the fashion and beauty industry have their color of the year and color palette predictions/ suggestions every year, why not the paint industry.
This is what the Pacific Paint (Boysen) Philippines aims to do as it launched its first Boysen Color Trend 2015 Event last January 21, 2015 at the SMX Convention Center.
“Filipinos have always been known to be creative with experessing themselves through color, whether through the clothes they wear or things they carry, said Johnson Ongking, VP of Boysen.
With that said they released 24 must have colors which makes up the 2015 Most Trending Colors On Living Spaces. These colors were grouped in four (4) color personalities. These color personalities came from shared insights on color developments and lifestyle changes with the Nova Paint Club, an international organizatiin of leading paint companies from Europe, Asia, North America and South America. Color Trend 2015 is the result of the collaboration of Boysen with its partnerd in Nova and a color research company which has extensive experience in forecasting color trends in the global fashion, publishing, automotive and telecommunications industries.
The Boysen Color Trend 2015 Palettes:
Naturist – Increasingly important in the world today is our connection with nature. For many of the city dwellers, there is a need to bring in the lush greens, warm wood tones, and vibrant reds into our living spaces. The lighter hues of marble and silk transform the palette from rustic to urbane, adapted to the contemporary taste of a society enjoying an economic upturn.
Kinetic – This palette is for those living in the fast lane, where things vibrate at a higher pitch. The intensity of tangerine is balanced by cool greys and sophisticated blues. Youthful and energetic, this is perfect for Type A personalities, people who are moving towards their goal at a fascinating speed.
Avant-Garde – More opportunities in society open the door for embracing a more individualistic style. There will be more outliers who will march to their own beat, and no rules will define them. Reds, blues, yellows, greens – bold, intense, all a little bit of the beaten track. Combinations are bound only by imagination.
Perfectionist – This palette is for those who prefer the timelessness and subtlety of classic colors. The tones are subdued and very self assured, befitting those who have enjoyed success for a longer duration, and who prefer to retreat into homes that calm the senses instead of stimulate.
The four color personalities are now available in more than 400 Mix and Match™ Boysen stations throughout the country.
