Diamond Vogel | Trending Colors | Winter 2015

Technology and innovation continue to drive new and better ways to complete life’s everyday tasks.  Shopping, home automation and communication are now all at our fingertips.  With the changing speed of life, we long for simplicity and balance in what is otherwise a complicated world.  To help create this, design trends have focused on natural and handmade elements that are authentic in their design.  A new romanticism is also emerging out of this desire for vintage looks and comfortable, private spaces.  Our winter trend palette highlights the soft, smoky colors emerging from these looks and the deep accents that pair well with them.

Design Trends
Coinciding with the still popular look of industrial spaces, metallized finishes of platinum, bronze, oxidized copper and rusted steel are popular finishes. Smoky pastels denote a romantic influence.  Natural woods, woven textures, knits and lace designs align with our search for cozy and comfortable spaces. Patchwork and stitched designs are driven by the trend for handmade and authentic elements.  Hexagon, chevron and ikat designs are growing in use and add modern styling.
