In the year 2000, the Pantone Color Institute declared Cerulean as its first Pantone Color of the Year. Since then, every designer looks forward to the end of every year to see what color is going to rule next.

As interior designers, we love seeing the new colors manifesting in new fabric lines, furnishings, rugs, and accessories. Read on to see the 2019 Colors of the Year.
