Artful housewares can be uplifting

In her recent webinar on colour trends in the home, Lee Eiseman, executive director of Pantone Colour Institute acknowledged that consumers are choosing plates, ceramics and other eye-catching pieces of housewares to adorn their living and home-working space. 

“Recent studies show that art in the environment improves the mood, relieves stress and enables people to work more effectively. Everyday objects and housewares products can be arranged as objects d’art — such as decorative plates arranged on a wall with or sculptural plants in colourful, textured ceramic containers — to provide visual variety at affordable prices.”

Lee’s presentation was part of the IHA (International Housewares Association) Connect Spring virtual event in March. The colour trends guru is a regular keynote speaker at The Inspired Home Show in Chicago.

Lee also explored and updated the key colour palette for housewares for 2022. These include the “ebullient” Vivify palette, “reworked and resourceful” Folkloric palette and “comforting and reassuring” Terracotta, as well as the “soothing” Composed palette.
