Color experts over at AkzoNobel have crowned a true yellow gold as its “Color of the Year for 2016.”

“Gold exemplifies the overall theme of duality,” explained Heleen van Gent, head of AkzoNobel's Global Aesthetic Center. “It's bright enough to attract attention, while subtly referring to history and heritage. So it represents a fusion of our past, our present and our future.”

Warm and versatile, "Ochre Gold" has been named the top trending hue in AkzoNobel's 2016 color guide.

"Ochre Gold" follows in the footsteps of the company’s 2015 top paint hue, "Smooth Copper."

The golden shade is “a warm neutral” that could be applied to interior and exterior surfaces, the company reports.

The color of the year is the star of the Amsterdam-based coatings company’s proprietary color and trend guide, ColourFutures 2016.

This year’s guide focuses on the theme, “Looking Both Ways,” and features four new palettes, the company says.
