Color Marketing Group presents MAYBE. This warm grey that is kissed with chocolate is anything but a wishy-washy neutral. With roots in Color Marketing Group’s European Summit , the hue is taking on the world’s stages of fashion and automotive. It is a determined neutral that speaks its mind. “Maybe we will, maybe we won’t, but we will be in charge of the decision.”
This hue not only works well with others, but can stand on its own with a power usually reserved for more colorful examples. When it is combined, it will enjoy the company of coordinating with everything from cool blues to ochre to plum.
This grounded, stable color is also set for luxurious applications. For fashion and interiors, it enhances velvet, cashmere and wool. It’s depth and earthiness make it ideal for home exteriors and when used as a metallic, it has a unique appeal on automotive finishes, action/recreation and consumer electronic finishes.
This hue is confident and will establish itself as a hue of choice for 2014 and beyond.
