“Authentic” is the word being used to describe design trends today. Color and decor need to offer both real value and real beauty. We are looking for colors and finishes that are grounded in nature and offer an authentic feel. These forever fashion colors and finishes offer natural longevity because they are muted and work with a wide variety of styles. We are seeing a brightening of accent colors, but muted neutrals still reign. Authentic finishes have aged patina’s because of time, wear and exposure. Metallic finishes continue to move warmer like brass and soft brushed gold. This warming of color and use of aged finishes reinforces the desire for timeless design, yet gives you permission to use modern, updated colors to show off your own unique personality.
