“Right now, many consumers want to ensure their styles and voices aren’t
fading to the back, and Blackhearth provides the perfect opportunity to
make a statement in the home,” said Misty Yeomans, color marketing
manager, Pittsburgh Paints & Stains brand. “Its deep tones
provide a sense of security that consumers are looking for in their
day-to-day life. Subtle hints of gray and purple allow for a captivating
look that can transform any space.”
Similar to a black dress, the elegance of Blackhearth makes it a
versatile color that can pair with almost anything and transform a room
to suit any mood, making it a staple in the Pittsburgh Paints & Stains
2018 color trends palette. The palette emphasizes authentic and charming
color combinations, primarily featuring rustic, vintage colors such as
Peppered Pecan, a comforting cocoa tone; Spicy Mustard, a darkened
yellow and Chili Pepper, a softened coral. By pairing Blackhearth with
any one of these colors, a home’s palette can emulate a spirit that’s
easy-going and unpretentious. For a simpler palette that lets décor
elements take center stage, pair it with classic neutrals such as
Moonlit Snow, a fresh white; Chalky Blue, a calming blue; and Silver
Dollar, a comforting grey. The palette offers a number of color
combinations that allow Blackhearth to be the lead character in your
home, or take a supporting role.
“We’re finding that consumers want to express their individuality
through the experiences they have, while keeping their home and
belongings minimalist and clean. Blackhearth perfectly reflects this
mentality, as it provides a clean backdrop for a home and its décor,”
added Yeomans. “Black is a classic for a reason – it looks good on
everyone, everything and everywhere. Pairing Blackhearth with un-fussy
colors makes this trend not only accessible, but irreplaceable.”
