Zeitgeist invokes the mood of the age and perhaps no feeling more closely reflects this spirit of the time than that we must salvage our planet. With sustainability as a guiding principle, Heubach’s 2023 Decorative Colour Trends set a new direction in colour and application techniques for decorative coatings.
The shades that feature in ‘Zeitgeist 2023 Decorative Colour Trends’ reach out to the future, diving into the unknown, exploring new galaxies and the depths of the seas. Based on the topics ‘Impetus’, ‘Free Rein’, ‘Y-Files’ and ‘Deep Space’ Heubach has developed four colour palettes from traditional, natural driven soft tones to intense and bright shades.
The four colour palettes consist of 21 colour trends including ‘The Colour of the Year (COTY) 2023 – GOOD JINN’, a dark and intense blue hue which is great for drawing the focus of a room to some special feature – a large window or a nice painting or piece of furniture.
“To each colour trend we offer matching colour tones and the basis for each is a guiding formulation available in our Formula Guide. This allows customers to match any colour they aim for in modern architectural paints,” said Franziska Trapp, Segment Head Decorative and Wood Coatings, Global Technical Marketing Coatings at Heubach.
At the same time, our digital world offers another kind of creativity, one that lets us explore a whole metaverse of opportunities and colours in each of the palettes. Why not lead a second life in the Y-FILES, where ‘Y not’ is the reigning motto? Especially now that the pandemic has turned us into blank slates and given us FREE REIN over how to continue. Who knows, we might even be inspired to become real-world explorers – fathoming the undiscovered depths of DEEP SPACE and bottomless oceans.
