Subscribers to The Trend Curve™ know that we have just released The Trend Curve Colors™ 2011. This is an all-new version of our annual color and trend forecast.
We are particularly excited about this collection. That’s because we think it fits perfectly with the mood of the market. Things are getting moving again, so there is a need for colors and trends that are different from before so consumers will have a reason to buy. At the same time, it is important that new hues also work with those from the past, so consumers will be able to add newness selectively, without feeling like they have to do more than they are ready for at one time. The Trend Curve Colors 2011 satisfies both needs.
This forecast includes 37 hues in six different values. We provide them in two sizes of paint-on-paper swatches. One is about 5″ x 5″, and has a grid printed on the back to guide you when cutting them up to share. We also provide a portable mini-deck on a ring, so you will always have a ready reference when you need it.
The Trend Curve is all about trends for home décor. That expertise has been translated not only to color, but also to style directions. Packed in with the color are Trend Cards for 9 new trends that we believe in for 2011. Each card gives you bullet-point details about the trend. For example, form, fabric and motifs may be what you need to know about most for one trend, but finishes, embellishments and wood type may be what drives the next. It is different for every trend. But we always tell you which colors we recommend for that style, including the volume-selling, accent and fashion-forward hues. Here are our trends for 2011:
|– Classic Romanticism||– Dream State||– Renaissance|
|– Swing Shift||– Stone Age||– Tough Enough|
|– Future Perfect||– Tribal Wisdom||– Spice Islands|
