Color Alert® is an exciting monthly feature from Color Marketing Group® (CMG), illuminating one color each month from CMG’s World Color Forecast™ and validating color predictions in the market.
This intense, pink-red, with the slightest hint of blue, bursts with energy and celebrates its association to fun and technology-driven life. A.I. Love’s tech edge gives it a universal appeal that also crosses product and design categories. It is not a frivolous color, it is hot, powerful, and unique.
Coming alive during discussions about tech and lifestyle at Color Marketing Group’s 2019 Asia Pacific meetings, to emerge in 2021, it has set the course as a statement color for Action and Recreation, Decorative Home, Fashion, Packaging, and more.
Focused on products for action and recreation that will range from sports equipment, clothing, toys, and more with a color that not only perform well with others but makes a great statement of pink power. No longer committed to specific genders or products, A.I. Love is free to embrace anything it wants and does so in various values, specialized finishes, and materials.
A.I. Love brings excitement to decorative home fashions and furnishings. With so many cool colors in the market in the past few years, this color becomes a great connection to warmth, with its cool undertone connecting to current cool spaces, with the overall warmth of the color moving interior spaces in higher energy, warm direction.
Great on its own, A.I. Love adds a brightness to organic-looking hues like olive, mustard, and cocoa, and elevates the style level of black, navy, and grey. It plays up its tech-electric side with other energized colors like orange and yellow and can morph its look with sheens and textiles from gloss and hard-edged to matte and flowing.
At Standard Textile, we’re seeing requests for fabrics with accents of this energetic pink, as well as textured fabrics with a punch. In hospitality, customers are pairing neutrals, as well as bright colors with this pink-red forward color in furnishings and drapery.

Love used as an accent color in fabrics for furnishings such as chairs for lobbies and offices, as well as privacy curtains, adding a bit of flair to neutral patterns.
