Fastest-growing colours

The colours Shutterstock loves in any given season reflect more than trends in fashion, home decor, or design – they represent our cultural moment.

Take the subdued, pastel shades of the ‘50s.

Clean robin’s egg blue or pale, pat-of-butter yellow gave people a sense of peace and safety after a tumultuous decade of war.

The natural greens and browns of the ‘70s aligned with the growing conservationist movement, and the first Earth Day.

If you look to the ideas influencing culture today, technology stands at the forefront.

There’s an excited energy driving this movement, so it’s no wonder that 2019’s Color Trends pack a digital punch.

UFO Green

This bright green evokes lush countrysides alongside whirling rows of binary code (a la The Matrix).

It’s both natural and supernatural, with a name that reflects its otherworldly quality.

Plastic Pink

This hot pink harkens back to a certain iconic toy but carries a whole new intensity in meaning.

A sizzling hue with lots of depth, it captures the electric glow of cities at night.

Proton Purple

Think buzzing neon signs, humming devices, vibrating phones.

This vivid purple represents the palpable positive charge of our daily lives.

Local favourites
