This week the Rhythm of Life colour card was released by Jotun after a year of researching global trends, unveiling 32 shades that will define interiors around the world in the year to come.

The selection done by the Norwegian company is full of ideas, realities, values and aspirations shared by people around the world, developed in response to the changing nature of modern international living. The palette is divided into three themes, read more about these below and have a look at some of the inspiring images from Jotun’s lookbook:

CITY MOTIONS represents modern urban creative culture, expressed through the pared-back design of compact city living spaces. Fusing an industrial aesthetic with comfortable, easy-living simplicity, it presents a refined and restrained palette of deep blues, marble greys and woody browns.

LUSH GARDEN takes us out of the city and into the forest, representing the grounding and restorative connection with nature, and offering a botanical sanctuary from the relentless pace of life. The blue-greens of leaves and jungle pools are contrasted with the red-browns of bark and branch.

‘How people think and what people dream of is actually surprisingly similar whether you live in Muscat or in Copenhagen. Everyone shares a love of colour. Our research identified three trends that are common to inhabitants of every global city: our longing for the restorative power of nature; our dream of a calmer, slower-paced way of life in the sun; and our desire to make the most of our increasingly compact urban living spaces in minimalist but creative ways.’ – Lisbeth Larsen (Jotun)
