{color of the month: seeing green with mother nature 0746}


This has been the year of natural and organic shapes and textures — from organic shapes at High Point Market to organic textures in the latest Thibaut books. And now, our color of the month is truly inspired by nature. Mother Nature, to be exact. Mother Nature 0746 is Hirshfield’s Color of the Month for October.

Mother Nature 0746 is a fashion-forward, organic color — a deeper green that sits somewhere between yellow-green and blue-green. We’re seeing this as an emerging trend color in fabrics, accessories, and wallpapers used as a deep neutral.

And we’re not the only ones with green on our minds. The Color Marketing Group picked Thrive as the North American Key Color 2017+.  And that’s the point. “Green is a color of growth, of newness, and of wellbeing,” says CMG , “and Thrive will be the hue to carry us forward.”

CMG says this fresh, well-balanced green grows beyond its eco-roots. Thrive is purposely balanced between light and dark, pale and strong. “As we move towards a new decade,” says CMG, “this green will establish itself as a colorful symbol for growth, strength, and endurance.”

Kathy Basil of Hirshfield’s Design Resouce Showroom has noticed the jewel tones of the 1980s returning, yet slightly configured for today. Thrive and Mother Nature 0746 certainly fit that description.
