Taubmans has embraced the notion of bringing the outside in, announcing its 2019 Colour of the Year as Night Watch.
To decide on the colour, the makers of Taubmans hosted a workshop with more than 20 global colour stylists from the automotive, consumer electronics, aerospace and home paint industries. The experts then analysed runway trends, lifestyles, demographics, geographies and global and cross-cultural societal inspirations to forecast what colours would resonate, including the paint company’s chosen Colour of the Year.
Taubmans predicted this particular shade of green to be the hot new hue next year, lending itself perfectly to introducing nature inside the home. The deep and sophisticated colour can be used to create balanced and harmonic spaces, and is a natural progression from the pink palettes that have proved so popular.
Encompassing the tones of a dense tropical jungle, Night Watch is chic, effortlessly timeless, and destined to be a favourite in both the home and workplace, given society’s urge to reconnect with nature in today’s tumultuous world.
“Green is a colour we will be seeing so much more of in 2019, from forest to sea foam and all tints and shades in between,” said Taubmans colour consultant Grace Garrett.

“It makes perfect sense that we are seeking to bring the calmness and soothing power of Night Watch into our decor, given the trend to bring the outdoors in.
“From a psychological perspective, green creates an equilibrium between the head and the heart, perfect to establish a space that encompasses balance and harmony.”
According to Garrett, Night Watch uses a tone which can be adapted to an array of styles.
Taubmans DIY and renovation expert, Cherie Barber says the colour makes it easy to transform a small space into a calming living area.
“The answer to a greener life indoors is as simple as letting nature in – in more ways than one,” Ms Barber said.
