For this year, Boysen is forecasting four color themes – Naturist, Kinetic, Avant-Garde, and Perfectionist, inspired by social influences on our current lifestyle. These color themes were based on the results of an extensive research project with international partners.

“Filipinos have always been known to be creative with expressing themselves through color, whether through the clothes they wear or the things they carry, said Johnson Ongking, vice president of Pacific Paint (Boysen) Philippines, Inc.

“We want to help extend that ability to express themselves to the places where they live by letting them know what we think are the colors that are most likely to have an influence on living spaces this coming year,” Johnson explains. 

“We compared notes with color experts all around the world so we could understand global lifestyle trends that were influencing color choices. So these four color palettes contain elements of what we’re seeing in the Philippines combined with what other color professionals are seeing in other parts of the world.”

Boysen is part of the Nova Paint Club, an international organization of leading paint companies from Europe, Asia, North America, and South America. Color Trend 2015 is the result of a collaboration of Boysen with its partners in Nova and a global color research company, which has extensive experience in forecasting color trends in the global fashion, publishing, automotive, and telecommunications industries.
