The Future of Color

Posted on: December 2nd, 2015 by blindsetc No Comments

With the year coming to a close, websites scramble to list off everything that happened in the year 2015. Popular lists include the biggest scandals, the best albums, and the most important trends. Why do we always tend to look back, when we have bigger stories and different trends waiting for us around the corner!
When the new year approaches, people find excitement in making new resolutions. You can poke fun at the “resolutioners,” all you want, arguing with the fact that a new year does not make a new person. Although true, we all use January 1st as a start date for a new year. This should be a day where we can start new and why not start within our home? New colors, less clutter, and more organization will help us focus our energy inward. Your resolution might take you to the gym, or across the sea, but you will always look forward to coming home to renew yourself and your family. To start the year right, here is a list that looks forward to the trendiest colors of 2016, chosen by some of the leading voices in home decor.
