Hirshfield's Spacebox 0493

Hirshfield’s Color of the Month for December is Spacebox 0493, a green-blue-gray, depending on the light. Think of eucalyptus, the little berries on spruce tops, and the blue-green rosemaling color of years past.

{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

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.”

Jungle Adventure 0739 paint color

March Color of the Month

The month of March represents renewal and optimism. Winter is behind us and we look forward to the first day of Spring and St. Patrick’s Day. Green is the obvious choice for March, but not just any green. Jungle Adventure 0739 is a classic, organic green with a hint of yellow undertone. Think nature, foliage, a jewel tone, but not as blue as the Hunter Green of the 80’s.

Warm Off-White Paint Color with Yellow Undertones

Sugar Dust 0011

January Color of the Month

What better way to start the New Year than with a fresh slate, or rather, a fresh coat of paint on your walls? This month we celebrate our favorite warm color – the dreamy Sugar Dust. This off-white color evokes tranquility and a sense of peacefulness, making it a hands-down favorite among Hirshfield’s designers and staff. So, warm up this winter with a little Sugar Dust sprinkled throughout your home.

“Sugar Dust 0011 has just enough golden undertones to make it a warm off-white that works well in our Minnesota climate,” says Mark Masica, Hirshfield Color Services Manager.”

Back to Basics 0255

Color of the month!

Warm up with December’s Color of the month: Back to Basics 0255.  Clean. Crisp. Classic. Hirshfield’s Color of the Month exemplifies how neutrals — yes, the clean camel “Back to Basics” is a neutral — are visually warming up this season.  For a medium-tone color it has a light and airy feel with no dominant undertones. It’s the perfect complement to the ever-popular gray palette, which often times benefits from a warming touch (see our clean camel / gray combinations below). Back to Basics represents the non-metallic color of gold which is popular today and as a paint color looks great with trim simply painted white. Jewel tones are trending clearer and Back to Basics will work well with those colors, too.  This is one instance where back to basics is fashion forward.  Onward. Read the rest of this entry »

You could say that “Glacier Bay” is “peaking” right now in the trend cycle. Look around and you’ll notice blue in a number of different settings – in fabrics and paint color as well as wallpaper and floors.

Kathy Basil from Hirshfield’s Design Center has noticed the trend with her clients,”Over the past six months or so, more and more designers are requesting blue fabrics and wallpaper.” Basil cautions that blue can be bold and depending on its use, a little can go a long way, and yet, “blue is a color loved by many.”
