Last year about this time, we ran a post on 2018 colors of the year. We featured the selections of eight prominent color authorities, such as Benjamin Moore, Sherwin-Williams, and Behr. Not surprisingly, the color mavens greet 2019 with a palette of all-new selections. Among the offerings:
Pantone: Living Coral
Pair Living Coral with any of the above DesignRail® railing colors: White, Not A Mellow Yellow, Silver, or Textured Black.
Sherwin-Williams: Cavern Clay
Pair Cavern Clay with any of the above DesignRail® railing colors: Gray, Blazing Blue, White, or Textured Black.
Benjamin Moore: Metropolitan
Pair Metropolitan with any of the above DesignRail® railing colors: Taupe, Green, White, or Black.
Pair Blueprint with any of the above DesignRail® railing colors: White, Orange You Sassy, Silver, or Textured Black.
PPG: Night Watch
Pair Night Watch with any of the above DesignRail® railing colors: Silver, Black, Margarita Green, or Cream.
How They Do It
Coating authorities go to a great deal of trouble and expense to announce their choices each year. For example, PPG consults with designers worldwide, tracks the long-term design choices of many industries such as automotive, hospitality, and aerospace, and assembles an internal panel of experts that meets over several days to identify the winning candidate. Bottom-line, each authority aims to minimize risk when an architect, interior designer, home or commercial builder, deck builder, or owner is ready to specify a color.
DesignRail® on Trend
That’s why one of the cool features of the Feeney DesignRail® System is the immense freedom you have to apply nearly any color to their powder-coated DesignRail® aluminum railings. Do you fancy Living Coral, Blueprint, or Night Watch? With 14 standard colors and over 200 custom colors to choose from, it’s a safe bet you’ll find a complimentary color to suit any interior or exterior.
But why stop there?
In early 2015 we introduced “Orange You Sassy” and four other bold colors in our “Express Yourself” color line. Who says a deck or staircase has to be subdued or understated?
The powder coated finishes on all DesignRail® railings meet rigorous AAMA-2604 coating specifications for superior color retention, impact resistance, and all-weather protection.
One last thought: if you’re using CableRail cable infill on your DesignRail® railings, you’re welcome to mix-and-match CableRail colored end caps to cover the cable end fittings. Choices like black, white, taupe, bronze, green, and other colors can help you unleash your inner fashionista.
