Window Fashion VISION

Comfortex Announces Window Fashions “Color of the Year 2018”—Ocean Waters

Ocean Waters is a blend of calming sea foam green with blue undertones. It is a peaceful green with strong emotional correspondence to feeling safe and secure. In today’s volatile climate, “there is a need for our homes to be a place of respirit,” says color expert Kate Smith of Sensational Color. “Creating a sanctuary at home is a key trend for 2018. Ocean Waters, a naturally soul-soothing color, can envelop your space inviting you to let go of the chaos of the outside world and enjoy the comforts and connections found within your own four walls.”

Green, especially shades with a hint of blue, are stress-reducing and restful to the eye, making Ocean Waters a great choice for a bedroom setting. As refreshing as a vacation at the beach, Ocean Waters can bring that same feeling into your window décor and home creating a calming effect year round.

Ocean Waters harmonizes with many colors. Coral is a perfect complement. Apricot or spring green punch up the color scheme while soft yellow, gray, or tan keeps it calm. The color experts at Comfortex favor pairing this with low-volume browns and neutrals like Desert Khaki and Windy Sky, as seen in the Color Lux Advisor Tool, to evoke a sense of tranquility.

Straight from Comfortex’s Color Lux® Designer Shade Collection, Ocean Waters (#430) is one of 800 colors you can choose from in a window shade. The Color Lux Cellular and Roller Shade collection has been a huge success for Comfortex, an upstate New York manufacturer of window fashions celebrating 30 years in business. The Color Lux color stories were developed by color expert Kate Smith, and with Kate’s guidance combined with Comfortex market research, we were able to make our selection for color of the year.
