We look at everything: Nature. Restaurants. Fashion. Public spaces. That’s how you gain respect in this industry—not by being good at guessing the trends, but by being good at paying attention.

Jewel Tones

  • Highly saturated hues inspired by natural jewels, metals, clouds and the cosmos

 

  • From artwork to furniture, colors like emerald, sapphire, and amethyst inject life & richness

 

  • Colors pop especially well against neutral, airy interiors

WHY WE LOVE IT:

Depending on the shade, jewel tones can transform any space into a sumptuous refuge, light-filled getaway, or dramatic niche.

Matte Black

  • From fashion and paint to home appliances, matte finishes are having a big moment

 

  • Matte finishes strip away all other distractions — such as surface sheen— allowing the object to take center stage

WHY WE LOVE IT:

This finish provides a cleaner, more modern look. Matte tile, for example, can be striking in a master bath while still feeling livable.

Brass & GOLD

  • Brass is experiencing a widespread resurgence in the design world—though this time it’s a softer, more antiqued brass than that of the 90’s

 

  • Brass and gold are overtaking chrome and brushed nickel as the metal of choice

 

  • Expect to see more brass and gold in fixtures, hardware, home decor, fabrics, and other metal accents

 

  • For design longevity, use brass and gold sparingly as accessories or embellishments

WHY WE LOVE IT:

Brass and gold add a layer of luxury to any space. A specialty light fixture, powder room sink, or decorative hardware act as clean and functional embellishments.

LARGE-SCALE PRINTS

  • Consumers are turning away from minimalistic, achromatic color schemes and towards more exciting ones—including large-scale, contemporary tropical and exotic prints

 

  • Rather than being used as a single ‘punch’ wall or furniture piece, these patterns are being reinforced with bold colors

 

  • The juxtaposition of small and large scale prints, when executed tastefully, allows for a memorable impact

  • These vibrant prints & patterns are prevalent in drapery, upholstery, and wallpaper

WHY WE LOVE IT:

Mixing pattern into a room creates excitement and lets minds wander to an exotic place.
