Dark grey features heavily in trend forecasts for 2020 and beyond. It is a key colour in Scarlet Opus 'Satori' trend, as well as the Dulux Colour Forecast 2020 'Cultivate' theme and Behr's 2020 Color Trends. All three themes focus on balance; offering a counterpoint to the harsh white filters of the digital sphere by reconnecting with the elements of nature, like verdant earth and natural light.
The Dulux Colour Forecast is a yearly exercise featuring colours that represent the essence of current social trends and global movements, and their Cultivate trend embraces the romance of slow living, taking pleasure in nature and our ability to nurture, grow and sustain ourselves in simple and small ways. It allows you to slow down and find deeper connections, as opposed to the over-illuminated, fast-forward world we live in.
Scarlet Opus is a UK-based trend forecasting agency, and their Satori trend encourages consumers to find a natural rhythm and balance in order to cope with the complexities of modern life and the distractions of the online world. It's about grasping on to what is real, rather than virtual.
Finally, Behr's 2020 Color Trends feature a palette that is 'inspired by natural elements such as sky, earth, water and plant life.' A key colour in this trend is their Graphic Charcoal, a dark grey that blends harmoniously with their accent colours, and makes them pop.
An extension of our classic colour range that features heavily in 2020 trend forecasts, our new grey is a celebration of colour and a stylists dream.
It is a pleasantly versatile colour that is easy to work with, and one that combines beautifully with a range of natural textures and materials, including exposed mid-tone timber, natural stone and a wide selection of florals. Our most versatile candle yet.
