Summer is the perfect time to slip off your shoes, slow down and reconnect. Time with family and friends allows sharing of experiences, humor and memories of the past. This time can offer perspective and make you see and think in different ways. Use this time to gather and create new experiences and ideas which lend themselves to experiencing new color. Color creates harmony in the home and lets you express yourself as an individual. Sensory experiences are created through nature-inspired color from plants, flora and natural lighting. Soft bright colors convey happiness and gratitude. Chalky color connects us to emotions of the past. During these warm weather months, take time to discover inspiring color for your home, you may find it in the most unexpected places.
Much is reported today on a product’s provenance, history or source. This type of thoughtful design comes from our desire for authentic, natural connections and influences how and why we buy. We look to the past for ideas and motifs that are familiar and offer comfort. Checks and plaids as well as paisley and chevron designs take us back in time, but are also fresh and modern to a new generation. Nature continues to shape product styling with worn, aged or oxidized finishes. We value beauty of finishes and colors that are organic, but also dynamic. True to life colors, without any added special effects embrace these natural connections. The rise of individualism and custom design give us relief from the ordinary. Watch as 'design on demand' continues to move forward with advances in digital and 3D printers.
