– Blues surged yet again, with Red casts trumping every other type.
– The freshest of the abundant Greens was Broccoli, but Olive also strengthened.
– Hot Pink popped up repeatedly.
– The “Mauv-itization” of Purple was in full swing.
– Reds were poised to grow.
MATERIALS AND FINISHES

– in accessories, it gave up share to burlap textures.
– Velvet went way beyond plain.
– Denim looks raced ahead.
– Felt grew dramatically.
– Over-the-top bling declined in favor of pearl, iridescence and luster accents. (See our Cultured Pearl™ Metallics)

– Tiling worked to replace layering in layouts.
– 40’s inspiration was an emerging theme.
