... Color Trends.  My friend Tamara Stephenson, NYC residential designer, textile and wallpaper designer of Root Cellar Designs and blogger extraordinaire has been traveling the world discovering the trends coming out of Europe that we in the United States will see in the next year and a half or so.  Tamara gave an informative talk based on her trips to Heimtextil in Germany and Paris Deco Off, as well as Maison et Object.  Not unlike fashion week, these internationally acclaimed European trade shows set the trends on all things home decor that we'll see in the stores and showrooms the following year.
Tamara identified 5 color trends to look for based on her sightings ~
PLANETARY BEAN ~  gemstones, minerals, wood, nature inspired, respect for the planet, washes, cerulean blues mixed with sandy neutrals.
