Trend Report / Summer 2015

Classic Blue

This shade is so much more than it seems. Familiar and comfortable but still exciting and invigorating, it always exhibits an easy elegance.

While it’s nearly nautical paired with white, it also anchors brighter colors, pointed out Mark Woodman of mark woodman design & color. “The amount of blue showing up in trends discussions is amazing,” he noted. “People are saying it will just not go away, though the values will change.”

Always versatile, it can feel ethnic, Parisian — or even Art Deco. One thing’s for sure — if you have fun with it, so will your customers! — Sarah Schwartz, Trends Editor
