Are you an Urban Hipster, a Hippie Dreamer or Natural Escapist? SELANGOR, MALAYSIA – ​The launch of Jotun Global Colour Trends 2018 today at the Oval Concourse of 1 Utama Shopping Centre introduces three colour themes: CITY MOTIONS, SILENT SERENITY and LUSH GARDEN. The themes are designed to illustrate the breadth of interior styles that reflect the identities of the diverse inhabitants of every global city. Malaysia is the first market in South East Asia to reveal the Jotun Global Colour Trends 2018: Rhythm of Life. The three colour themes are the result of extensive time and expertise invested by colour and trend experts of the Jotun Colour Team in Norway- led by Jotun Global Colour Manager, Lisbeth Larsen. The 2018 edition of Jotun Global Colour Trends: Rhythm of Life, brings to life the 3 distinct rhythms for the contemporary home: CITY MOTIONS, SILENT SERENITY and LUSH GARDEN. By perfectly capturing the mood of each theme and showcasing the unique power of colour to shape the visual rhythm of a room, the themes provide inspiration to home-owners and home designers of all walks of life everywhere – hipsters, hippies and otherwise. We shift into different stages of our lives and groove to our ever-changing personal beat- a rhythm that influences how we live, the choices we make, and the way we look at the world and at ourselves. The colours presented in Rhythm of Life provide a mix-and-match palette to suit your personality. And, when your style or circumstances alter, you can take advantage of colour’s remarkable power to transform the atmosphere of a room, and change your shade to create a space that best reflects who you are today. “Our research identified three trends that are common to inhabitants of every global city: our longing​ ​for​ ​the​ ​restorative​ ​power​ ​of​ ​nature​; our dream​ ​of​ ​a​ ​calmer,​ ​slower-paced way​ ​of​ ​life​ ​in​ ​the​ ​sun​; and our desire​ ​to​ ​make​ ​the​ ​most​ ​of​ ​our​ ​increasingly​ ​compact​ ​urban living​ ​spaces​ ​in​ ​minimalist​ ​but​ ​creative​ ​ways​. We’ve designed our colour card as a tool to help people express these impulses in their homes – mixing and matching the colours in the way that best reflects their own identity and rhythm of life,” Lisbeth Larsen, Jotun Global Colour Manager. Jotun’s new colour themes are a great way to approach the mood-shifting nature of design and colours. The themes allow you to create and capture a distinct temperature, feeling and atmosphere to best reflect you. “Jotun is at the forefront of product and colour innovation, constantly striving to exceed expectations through delivery of high quality products and long lasting colours to skyscraping iconic buildings as well as home interiors.” Managing Director of Jotun Malaysia & Singapore, Eric Mallace said today. He continued, “Year-round, Lisbeth (Larsen) and her team in Norway tap into design trends in global cities, pour through research reports from across the World and look at the ways in which our lifestyles are changing with the modern world; all to predict- and then create the colours made available to home designers today. We are so proud to have Malaysia be the first market in Southeast Asia to reveal Jotun’s Global Colour Trends of 2018.” These themes are each designed to both reflect the realities of modern living and inspire the imagination. The Jotun Global Colour Trends 2018: Rhythm of Life collection of 32 shades provides designers with an interior palette that’s as suited to homes across the world. Step into the future of 2018 to discover the colour palettes set to pervade the interiors of your homes in the year ahead. ]]>
