‘Awakening’ is Colour Of The Year 2019

The colour unveiled by Asian Paints at the recently concluded India Design ID, New Delhi is a beautiful shade of plum that is humble yet strong and representative of the new order

Like a ceremonious change of guard or the turn of the seasons, we’re are welcoming the Colour of the Year 2019. ‘Awakening’ is a mix of brown and purple symbolic of strong resolve and noble intentions. While purple brings in authority and power, the brown in it makes it down-to-earth and approachable.

Here is how you can incorporate the colour in a soft monochrome look:

Texture play - Avoid cluttering your canvas with loud prints and big patterns. Less is so much more here. Add depth and dimension with weighted and sheer fabrics, different weaves and textured elements for a look that lets the luxuriance of the hue revel in the spotlight.

Paper play - When going for a subtle way to highlight a spot like this, picking quality wallpaper is your best bet. Keep things fresh by contrasting two differently textured panels that give the wall an undeniably modern vibe.

Whether you like to keep things low-key or boldly try what no one else will, Awakening is the choice of colour that will deliver more versatility effortlessly. Lookout for exciting rugs, cushions, wall décor and upholstery featuring this colour too!
