For me, springtime brings to mind grass turning green, yellow daffodils, tulips blooming and the fragrance of lilacs. The return of warm weather also means the return of color to our world. After a long winter, we crave color and look for ways to incorporate it into our living spaces.
Patinas and distressed finishes along with the use of texture are influencing color and design trends. Worn and textural finishes evoke a feeling of authenticity and freedom often missing in our fast paced, technology filled life. The perfect example of this is the emerging influence of copper. This earthy metallic changes and morphs into amazing colors as it ages. Watch for copper’s color influence on furniture, flooring and interior finishes. Color is also showing up embedded in textured and distressed products for the home. Find color hidden or layered in crevasses, folds and inside products adding bonus pops of color in unexpected ways.
