Promotion: NCS Colour has released its latest colour report documenting its predicted colour trends in 2025 that highlight “a need to connect with nature”.
The trends report spotlighted the need for colour variation and hues that “transcend traditional boundaries”. According to NSC Colour, this includes a mixture of bold contrasting colours and ethereal pastel-coloured hues that have “an airier and lighter quality”.
The brand outlined four collections called Gaia, On and Off, Inner, and Ethereal, each consisting of six trending colours.
The brand described Gaia as “a tribute to nature and water”, which includes green and blue tones intending to add a calming presence to interior spaces.
Ethereal was designed to represent “light and fluid colours that bridge the physical and digital worlds”, while On and Off features bold and contrasting shades that NCS Colour said were needed due to a desire to “stay connected in a divided world”.
The fourth palette is Inner, which includes warm and earthy tones designed to represent “subtle yet enduring strength”.
The brand said that these colour palettes represent the colours that will be trending in 2025. It believes that hues that evoke “warmth, comfort and joy” will be vital and predicts a departure from an era focused on neutral colours.
“For 2025, like the world, our colour preferences will differ quite dramatically, it is a year of big contrasts,” said creative director at NCS Colour, Karl Johan Berclsson.
