It mixes so well with neutrals and minimalistic décor. Plays so well with Hygge influence. It’s modern and it’s fresh.
Why this blush wave gained so much ground? It’s because it is not about the one color, it’s the whole mixed current of complimenting colors and textures... not so much about the blush in the wave, as it is about the wave itself!
In this post, we’ll share some swatches from different brands, showing their predictions for color trends in 2018 and you will see that... BLUSH / PINK… whichever end of the spectrum you prefer, you’re doing it right. It’s here to stay!
2018 Colors Of The Year
Ok, full disclosure – there are other colors that have been chosen as THE color of the year by many brands. For example, in home decor, Benjamin Moore announced Caliente, which made a lot of people happy with such a bold shade of red. Sherwin-Williams’ Oceanside, a deep and moody bluish green is surely going to start appearing in a lot of homes. Dulux and its 2018 color of the year, Heart Wood – love that name! – is a calming shade that is so perfect as a feature color, without being loud and distracting.
2018 Color Trends
But the brands above and other trend-setting companies have entire mood boards and palettes that feature other colors. Those are the ones we pay attention to. Because after all, you don’t want to be outdated at the end of the year when the next IT color comes out. Seek out the underlying trends across different influencing industries instead of just one color that’s in the moment.
And the common trend for 2018 are the different shades and saturations of that powder pink, blush, coral, plum, mauve and warm sand. Of course, these are all slightly different colors but once you start looking, eagle eye at the full palettes, you'll start seeing how they all seem to fit into the same style and head in the same direction. And seriously, whoever comes up with some of these names... they are brilliant! Let’s look at few...

But don’t forget that there is yet another trend that is worth looking at. It goes hand in hand with color…
And that is…
Textures for 2018!
If you haven’t noticed yet, copper and rose gold have been trending in home decor for a while. And now... marble, the 2018 color trends’ unbeatable companion is practically everywhere! Here’s what we LOVE about marble… it's a stone that can easily fall into the mix of the industrial look; it’s got just the right amount of natural subtle texture, lending itself seamlessly into the Minimalistic and the Normcore look; the veins of marble are flowing and soft, so it mixes perfectly with florals and pastels for a feminine touch. It’s sophisticated. It’s a classic.
We're not going to show you a ton of examples, you’ve got Pinterest for that, and we know YOU KNOW how to find what you need on Pinterest, girl ;) But if you'd like to obsess over some stunning tablescapes, check out this post Marble, Copper & Other 2018 Wedding Trends to Obsess Over or how about Monique Lhuillier & Pottery Barn partnership.

A nurturing palette
This blush wave has been creeping up on us for a while actually. Thinking back, it started with the Rose Quartz trend and over time evolved into Millennial Pink… those were the initial tremors. As the wave started to grow, it transcended its value as a single color. Got strengthened by the popularity of rose gold, copper, and marble. And now, finally, blush is having a major homecoming with a series of saturations from other colors and we're loving them all. Combined with neutral grays and soothing taupes, these are nurturing hues for your home and your wardrobe. At this point, the wave is unstoppable. At least not in 2018!
