No single color seems to have taken hold, according to Segal, but there is a growing preference for a rainbow of saturated hues rather than pale neutrals. Pogonitz agrees but stresses limiting bold color choices to a single room or two. Though they may be losing favorite now, neutrals still have their place, especially when patterns are small or paired with a texture, Segal says. And when the exact desired color cant be found, many manufacturers will make custom color papers. Oversized, bold geometrics and florals remain among the most popular newcomers overshadowing diminutive, sweet prints. Yet, a bold look requires some discretion. Barnett warns against using such patterns behind a television or on a wall that homeowners spend a lot of time facing directly.
Why its happening: With reports of contaminants in drinking water, toxic levels of formaldehyde being released from laminate flooring, and other home health scares, consumers are increasingly concerned about how their home may affect their health. But rather than compromising health and wellness, homes can provide an opportunity to enhance lives. Building experts await the U.S. debut of the DARWIN Home Wellness Intelligence platform at the January 2019 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The platform focuses on air filtration, water purification, circadian lighting, and comfort-focused technologies, all to simulate the natural outdoor environment. “We wanted to get rid of stagnant air thats two to five times worse than outdoor air, contaminated water that runs through old corroded pipes, synthetic materials that offgas, and artificial light that disrupts natural circadian rhythms,” says Paul Scialla, founder and CEO of Delos, DARWINs developer. “It also responds to changes it detects, such as pollutants coming in on the bottom of our shoes.” The first fully integrated DARWIN home was launched two months ago in Australia, with the platform adding only $2,000 to the cost of the project, he says. Eventually, Delos plans to make the technology available for retrofits of existing single-family homes.
