So how to build these trends up? An important factor influencing color trends at any point of time is major event of the recent past. Major color forecasters feel that events and circumstances somewhere affect the way people feel about color and it reflects in their choices.
Some colors return as they combine with new shades. For example, blue returns with silver or gold, or maybe with lesser brown in an earthier setting. And others return with a changed name, so terracotta just isn't around now, though the new orange with reddish brown hues is. At home, the conservative buyer may just look to fit with what is already in the house. So let's catch up with the buzz, especially for paint colors.
