Haymes 2013 Colour Forecast

Last week I was lucky enough to be invited to the Haymes 2013 Colour Forecast Launch. Its always an interesting and inspiring evening and I have been to the last four or so. This year the guest speaker was Debbie Ryan from McBride Charles Ryan who is a great presenter. She is effervescent about her love of colour in architecture, interior design and life in general.

Haymes forecasted four themes for 2013:
U Emerge - Autumnal & Metallic Shades
The Way U Were - Chalky Pastels
U R Artiste - Brights
U in the Universe - Blues

They also released 12 new colours - the 'Next Generation' palette:

It was interesting to see blues feature heavily in the 'Universe' forecast. Blues have typically been banished to the realms of healthcare and educational interiors for the past decade or two. My favourite colours from the evening were Autumn Leaf, Diversity, Spruce Grove, Copen Blue, Amazon, Copper, Enigma, Patina & Intuition.

One of the things I love about Haymes is that they truly are an Australian company and a family company. I look forward to specifying some of the new colours on up and coming projects!
