Trendy (part 1)
The next few posts are going to be dedicated the trends popping up for 2007/2008. A special thanks to my fearless friend who sent me the highlights of this report. You know who you are!
Late last year, Gunnar Frank (trend researcher from Amsterdam) presented his views on the newest trends for house and home. But as we know, what starts in one category will eventually be absorbed by other forms of design. A lot of these trends you will see sprouting up already, while others we'll have to keep a look out for.
So, I attribute most of these findings to Mr. Frank. So if you disagree... take it up with him :)
Today, on the heals of my Pantone post, I start with color. Yellow is everywhere, all hues ranging from happy-go-lucky buttercup, to a more serious mustard, and a spicy curry. Kelly green is also making a huge appearance in fashion and home goods. And, apparently, white is the new black!
The new curry-yellow line at Paper Source.
Kelly green coat from Top Shop.
New white bag as seen at Principles.
Ladies and gentlemen, it's time to go shopping...
