I have a love-hate relationship with trends. While I love to incorporate new looks in my own style and for my clients, this business — and it is a business — of keeping up with the times gets exhausting, and can be expensive.
While my cynical side resents feeling manipulated into wanting to buy new things, my more agreeable side is more accepting of the flow of fresh looks and innovation.
While I don’t adopt every new trend for myself, I do aim to stay educated on what is current. After all, not every trend is going to fit with my personal aesthetic – nor a potential client’s.
I’ve been covering color trends and Color of the Year selections for years now and these posts are often my favorite. I’m pleased to announce I’m adding a new addition to the mix and this company is not primarily known for their paint. Graham & Brown is an international manufacturer know for their wallpaper and wall art. Real Fashionistas starved for color and design have long turned to Graham & Brown for decadent and grown up designs.
I’ve been waiting for someone to announce a red as their Color of the Year pick since it’s been popping up all over the European Trade Shows. Finally, the wait is over. Benjamin Moore has revealed “Caliente AF-290” as Its Color of the Year 2018. Strong, radiant and full of energy, Caliente is total confidence.
