Spice of Life: 2019 Color of the Year
Customers are sometimes curious about the latest color trends. We invite you to introduce them to Spice of Life — our 2019 Color of the Year — a confident dark-brown, fire-brick-red hue that boasts gorgeous orange undertones. It’s an outgoing, bold hue that’s dramatic and stimulates the senses. Our Color of the Year selection is meticulously based on trending hues in design, fashion, and technology — and brings what is happening across our world into our spaces.
Here are some ways you can recommend Spice of Life:
- Ask your customer about what will be placed in the room — If they are decorating with blues, warm oranges or neutral colors, Spice of Life will work beautifully. You might also want to recommend Spice of Life if the color complements your customer’s corresponding furniture and accessories.
- How is the lighting? — Is there a lot of illumination in the space? If so, Spice of Life is excellent for rooms with large windows.
- Provide samples and color chips — Does your client love the color red? Are they looking for warm hues? Are they looking for the perfect shade for a pop of color or painting an accent wall? These are all great opportunities to provide your customer with a chip of Spice of Life. They can even pick-up a coupon for a free sample in-store
