Calypso Blue is a vibrant color with bold, inky undertones. It represents where design is headed in the coming year, a reinterpreted twist on a classic shade, and we’re excited to see how designers use it in their interiors throughout 2015.

Robert Allen, known for leading color vision in the interiors industry, has announced the results of its inaugural Interior Designer Color of the Year program. For this new initiative, the company invited designers to vote for the “It” color of 2015, based on five options predicted by the color experts at Robert Allen. Calypso Blue was selected as the 2015 Interiors Color of the Year, winning with over 30% of the votes from nearly 1,500 designers and interior experts.

Robert Nachman, Vice President of Marketing for Robert Allen, explained, “We have a 75-year history of color expertise at Robert Allen, and the design team constantly reinvents color in fresh, creative ways geared specifically towards the interior design community. By incorporating interior designers into the Color of the Year selection process, we know that Calypso Blue will be a color with great versatility and applicability across a wide variety of projects.”

Robert Allen Director of Fabric Design Hannah Alderson adds, “Calypso Blue is a vibrant color with bold, inky undertones. It represents where design is headed in the coming year, a reinterpreted twist on a classic shade, and we’re excited to see how designers use it in their interiors throughout 2015.”

The preliminary Interior Designer Color of the Year selection began with the Robert Allen design team. The company’s internal trend and color experts studied colors present on the fashion runways, in current interiors, and throughout history to observe past patterns and determine which would be the hottest hues for 2015. After choosing a range of shades across many different families of colors, Robert Allen sent its top choices to interior designers and industry professionals and tasked them to make their own predictions for the Interior Designer Color of the Year in 2015. The winning color, Calypso Blue, radiates a lively and elegant aesthetic, and will be featured in upcoming Spring 2015 collections from The Robert Allen Group.
