Professional interior designers selected Kelly-Moore’s Kettleman KM5818 as The 2017 Color of the Year.
“Within the 2017 palette, we see an evolution of an assortment of colored dark shades inspired by nature”, said Mary Lawlor, Manager of Color Marketing. “The choosing of Kettleman by the design community as COTY 2017 validates the importance of this trend.” Lawlor continued.
The 2017 COTY runners-up were: Trade Secret KM4860, Silver Blueberry KM4994, and Sea Glass KM4851. An enlightening trend spotted from this survey was the continued importance of aquatic blues and greens.
