Most often seen in historically inspired homes, Spanish Moss invokes the comfort and reassurance found in the past and can be seen as the main color for the chairs in this outdoor dining set.
CLEVELAND – Spanish Moss is the Krylon 2023 Color of the Year. The paint company said the familiar yet inspirational color balances cool and warm accents.
“This year’s color selection is inspired by the comfort and reassurance found in the past, as we look to find contentment in the future,” said Ashley Banbury, Krylon senior color designer. “Spanish Moss is a timeless, organic hue that embraces the raw beauty of the natural world. Historically, green has inspired homeowners both indoors and out, and today, it continues to deliver a renewed and contemporary look to heritage pieces.”
The heritage trend style is increasingly growing in popularity, according to the company. The color is typically seen on upcycled, recycled, vintage and antique furnishings, and it inspires do-it-yourselfers’ to create inviting spaces full of comforting personal touches.
“Many of us find great comfort in the natural world,” said Banbury. “Spanish Moss embodies consumers’ ongoing fascination with caring for and enjoying the environment and speaks to the sustainability movement as well. It’s inspiring at-home creatives, while offering a dose of nostalgia and familiarity at the same time.”
Complementary colors include metallic hammered gold, textured sandstone, metallic copper and gloss clear, according to Banbury.
“As our perspective on the value of home life continues to shift, and the focus on overall wellness, mindfulness and meditation continues, the organic, restful ambiance of this plant-based color provides a strong, soothing connection to the richness of nature, as well as feelings of authenticity and stability,” added Banbury.
