London-based trend forecasting service WGSN has pinpointed 5 new colour trends 2018. These are set to make a huge impact for design, fashion and interiors in the dawn of the next decade.
The future’s here to come. And in 2020 we’ll see brand new technologies becoming our reality. AI will help gymnastics judges score athletes at the Olympic Games. The world’s tallest building, the Jeddah Tower in Saudia Arabia, will be completed and NASA’s Mars 2020 Rover begins his mission the Red Planet.
Not surprisingly, WGSN predicts that the colour palettes of the future will feature cooler, more technical hues. These are rooted in plant life and nature. According to WGSN, the primary star of the palette is Neo Mint. This new shade ‘embodies the drive towards tones that have gender-neutral appeal, which by 2020 will have moved on from the more feminine hues’.
