In a world filled with far too many places to plug in—Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest and more—you can bank on the fact that lots of consumers are looking for a place to unplug—even when they’re not on vacation. That need inspired some of the best trends in The Trend Curve Colors™ for 2014, our bestselling color-and-trend package. Here are just two examples:
Garden’s Edge – With patio doors closed to ringing phones and Facebook pings, this 1980’s return to lush, large scale casual flowers tells the brain it’s time to stop and smell the roses. Lithe and well-spaced tulips, orchids and lilies float over open grounds on comfy pillows on lawn furniture. Natural garden hues, like our Burlap Brown, Prairie Grass and Herati Leaf, invite the eye and say it’s time to take a deep breath and enjoy the full-bloom time of year while it lasts.
Best Of The West – With a color palette that’s as warm and welcoming as the Southwestern sun, this trend is perfect for family rooms and man caves alike. Kilim-rug designs and blanket stripes are just a few of the Navajo-inspired print choices that make this a perfect recipe for creating both a fun and relaxing setting.
