Spring 2013
Trends: Today & Tomorrow By Becky Tyre

A beautiful meld of contrasts, coral mimics delicate branches reaching for the sky, yet exists in clusters to stay grounded at the bottom of the sea. Similarly, the coral color encompasses a range from soft pinky-peach to bold red undertones that reflect a casual sophistication in home décor and fashion. What other trends are worth watching? We explore five in our forecast.

Coral Chic

One of the most recognizable and exquisite shapes found in nature, coral adds a designer flair to home décor, textiles, stationery, tabletop and fashion accessories. Textured and at times colorful, coral is at home in more elegant environments than its undersea counterparts, shells and starfish, that find a home in beach houses and more casual settings.
