Portugal-based paints and varnish company CIN has released its 2018 Color of the Year, along with 11 other Color Trend shades, in its new “Color Revelation” catalogue.

Color of the Year

The company says that the dozen picks are inspired by the sophistication and mysteriousness of the force of nature, which it says shines through in its COTY pick: Amethyst.

“This unexpected and almost magical hue conveys the benefits of amethyst through the harmony that it radiates, since this striking stone is usually recommended for balance in the home,” the company says.


The company says that the dozen picks are inspired by the sophistication and mysteriousness of the force of nature, which it says shines through in its COTY pick: Amethyst.

“This darker tone fits in with the current trends in decoration, providing nuances that are different yet bold, but at the same time, classic and refined. The color of the year allows us to be daring in decoration and, at the same time, brings beauty and an innate, harmonious elegance to our homes. Because we need colors full of values within the home, with Amethyst #E723 you have the balance and the beauty you are looking for.”

Color Picks

The color picks are split into four collections: Neutral Revelation, Red Revelation, Blue Revelation and Green Revelation.

“Inspired by the indomitable force of nature in its purest and wildest state, this catalogue of 40 colors is in total harmony with the current trends of decoration and design,” the company says. “Each collection offers 10 shades inspired by nuances of water, the atmosphere, minerals and soil, which is to say, in the shades of our home, the planet Earth.”

The collections include:

  • Neutral Revelation—Hygge Grey, Lava Stone and Causeway lead the neutral collection and are inspired by elements such as stone, dirt and fur. The entire collection spans the neutral spectrum from browns to grays.
  • Red Revelation—Rose Breeze, Canyon and Turmeric are at the forefront here reflecting plants and spices. This collection is heavy with pink tones as it also includes shades of burgundy and blush.
  • Blue Revelation—Glassy Blue, Navy Blue and Amethyst top out this collection and are all crystal in nature calling to mind precious stones, ice and water. The Color of the Year, though, is the only purple in the collection of majority blue hues.
  • Green Revelation—Succulent Green, Sage Green and Malachite head the last collection, bringing the green into the nature inspiration. The rest of the collection, while mostly shades of green, does not to green-gray and mustard yellow.

“With the launch of these 12 new colors, this flagship collection has become even more versatile by enabling each person to create their own combination of colors,” said CIN Color Designer Celine de Azevedo.

“When you decorate a space, the choice of colors is one of the most important moments, which is why we continue to develop completely exclusive tailor-made colors for everyone who is passionate about their homes.”
