The First 2018 Color Predictions Are Here and They're Super Bold. In 2016, Simply White and Alabaster White were the hue of the moment. Then in 2017, we saw a shift to darker neutrals, like Poised Taupe and Mushroom. So it's only fitting that for 2018 people predict even deeper and bolder colors are going to be all the rage. One of the first paint companies to release their prediction is PPG Paints, who named Black Flame (PPG1043-7) their new "it" shade. They describe it as an "unprecedented, statement-making black with deep tones of indigo." So ... Black Flame is the new black? They also claim it reflects the rebirth of classic black and evokes feelings of privacy, hope and classic modernism. It kind of reminds us of Benjamin Moore's Shadow from last year, to be honest.
Unpopular Opinion: Clawfoot Tubs Are Simply the Worst. Clawfoot bathtubs are beautiful; there's no doubt about it. Reassuringly solid, with lovely antique detailing, it's not hard to see why so many bathroom renovators are wooed by their winsome charms. In fact, we've reached an interior design moment in which one would be hard-pressed to find a recently remodeled bathroom that isn't designed around a delightfully quirky vintage bathtub — call it the Joanna Gaines effect. However, we have a hunch that this what's-old-is-new-again fad is on its way out, for one simple reason: we're starting to remember why "old-fashioned" tubs fell out of common usage in the first place. Clawfoot tubs became a part of our collective design vocabulary as a luxury item of the Victorian era. By the 1920's, they were de rigeur, but by the midcentury, they were outdated, replaced with the more efficient built-in tubs of the 60s and 70s. Now, we're not encouraging a return to the shallow rectangular constructions many of us grew up with, but there are a few reasons that the clawfoot tub is not the bathroom design panacea it appears.
