Two years ago, the trends were labeled Wow Color Now. Last year, the trends message was all about color intensity paralleled with a serious need for unplugging from our 24/7 lifestyle. In 2013, expect even more color and more creativity. All the coming trends have one thing in common – individual expression that is very well articulated. Consumers are more at ease with color, mixing and matching, craving the complex patterns and color blocking. Look for bright colors and unexpected places to use it!
One of the top trends is called Elusion.
Elusion highlights a playful and fantastical design ideal, like a fairy tale environment for grown-ups. The perfect escape from reality, this is a theme that balances dark and dramatic designs, melding delicate and playful forms. Loaded with whimsy and a flair for the extraordinary, this strange enchantment gives Elusion a sense of wonder. As with the overall design aesthetic, the color palette is a mix of dark and delicate. Bright colors such as fuchsia and sea foam are the energetic middle ground between dramatic black and the pale pinks, blues, and greys that serve as neutrals.
Combine PPG Black Magic 518-7 (above) with Rose Marquis 136-6 and French Riviera 255-7 to achieve Elusion in your home.
