Today Jotun launched their 2019 color card here in Oslo, a color card reflecting the tendencies in our society. No wonder we seek to Jotun for inspiration and trends, they are very much one of the trend makers. The color card is called Identity and it explores the colors that characterize and reflect modern urban lifestyle around the world. We want to express our identity through where we live, through fashion, through the music we listen to and through our homes. Our homes is not for showing off for guests, the home of 2019 simply says “this is me” and we aspire to create homes that expresses our values, our interests and our personality.

The first photos is from the launch earlier today where team Jotun with stylists Kråkvik and D´Orazio had created a very inspiring exhibition showing the three different themes of the color card.

“Home is the living story of who we are, told in the objects and colors we fill it with” – Lisbeth Larsen, Global Color Manager at Jotun. Compiled over a year by the Jotun colour specialists in Sandefjord, Norway, and incorporating on the insights of a global network of colour-trend researchers – Lisbeth and her team have translated their insights into a palette of 28 shades to be added to Jotun paint range. To illustrate how different colour combinations can be employed to communicate different identities, Jotun has identified three distinct, globally resonant themes, each describing an individual mindset and way of living – the story of an individual, told in colour.

Soft, light neutrals and warm, subtle contrasts. The calm identity prizes meaning above quantity in the things they surround themselves with, revelling in the almost-Nordic simplicity of their space. Their home is a refuge of clean, easy living and a place of peace, a Zen sanctuary given character through a handful of choice artworks or objects that carry deep personal significance. Nothing is superfluous; there is no room for clutter. Everything has a place and a reason to be in it. Calm is a color theme with warm greys and beiges, who we call neutrals. All three themes intertwine and colors can easily be combined and mixed. The sensuous peach colors from the theme called Raw is beautiful together with the neutrals.

The second theme consist of sense-stimulating greens and yellows, given depth with different textures. The refined identity is that of the modern-day curator: discerning, considered and interested in intriguing juxtapositions. Their home is dotted with a seemingly eclectic collection of art and artefacts, vintage pieces and contemporary design, all carefully positioned in order to acquire new meanings in their relationship with one another. This home is a personal gallery – a dialogue between colour and object whose whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

The third theme consist of deep earthy reds, sensuous peaches, greens and darker neutrals. The raw identity is rooted in the earth. Their home is that of a maker and an artisan – an individual that relishes the honesty of working with their hands, who values provenance above polish. They are chefs, and hunters, bakers and carpenters. They find beauty in craft and utility – reflected in rustic homes and grounded spaces full of natural, wood-and-stone textures and the colours of soil and sand.

The three identities created by Jotun are in no way prescriptive. Users of the colour card are free to mix and match the new colours as they wish. After all, the rooms of a home can each reflect different facets of an identity – someone may be a hunter in the kitchen or a curator in the living room, but seek a moment of Zen in the bedroom – or be a combination of all three types. The colour card gives us the freedom and flexibility to reflect ourselves as we are, to show our identity in our homes.

    Hej Elisabeth tack för ett fantastiskt inlägg. , Jag tycker ”Sheer Grey” verkar fin, men det finns inte så mycket bilder på den ännu. Jag lurar på att ha den i vardagsrummet. Jag upplever att den påminner lite om
    blek Sand. Eller vad är ditt intryck? Tack på förhand!

      Hei Karolina, enig Sheer Grey er veldig fin! Når jeg holder fargeprøven av den inntil Blek Sand ser Sheer Grey mindre gul ut, mens nyansen ellers oppleves veldig lik.

    LADY Pure Color 7628 Treasure likte jeg utrolig godt. Jeg har vært på utkikk etter en slik grønntone hjemme, og har tidligere vurdert en annen fra LADY som heter Laurbær. Hvordan er denne i forhold? Har to andre beigetoner hjemme – Macchiato og Sand – som begge er nøytrale og fine, tror du Treasure kunne gått i rommet ved siden av?

    Og et ikke-farge spm.: blomstene på bilde 4 er utrolig flotte! Er dette tørkede blomster eller kunstige, og hvor er de fra?

      Hei Marie,
      Enig, Treasure ser veldig fin ut. Jeg kjenner ikke fargene godt nok til å vurdere Laurbær og Treasure opp mot hverandre – og de to beige fargene men henvend deg til Jotun via Ladybloggen, der sitter ekspertene.
      Blomstene er levert av Bukett som er omtalt på bloggen i et innlegg fra fredag 31/8 :)

    Hei Elisabeth! Kan jeg spørre om hvilke to farger som vises i det øverste bildet helt til høyre? Kan det være refleksjon og soothing beige? De sto så fint til gråfargen der, comfort grey – som er en av mine favoritter nå som det skal males litt hjemme :)

      Hei Ingvild,
      Du har helt rett! Det er Soothing Beige og Refleksjon som vises på bildet.
      Nydelige til Comfort Grey.

      Hei Anita, nattbordet er ikke malt men kan se ut til å være
      laget av en type steinkompositt.
