2010 High Point Market Preview: What Color To Expect!

2010 color shades of blue

We are expecting to see shades and tones of turquoise this spring at High Point Furniture Market. That’s right, take a back seat beige and brown and let the royal and sea-foam blues take the spotlight!

Pantone even has “Lagoon” named one of the top colors for the 2010 Fashion Color Report. This color trend is even splashing into both the fashion and home industries around the world.

Below are two ways to incorporate shades of blue into your home from House Beautiful.




You can also accent areas in your bathroom or kitchen with shades of blue tile.

I love this kitchen picture from Coastal Living. Those chair seat covers are so creative!



The HFB 2010 eMarket Preview  says this year it is about making a statement and people are looking to infuse their rooms with color, while not having to redo the entire room. Naturally color stimulates your mood and this is exactly what fabric and furniture companies are trying to achieve this spring market. This is also referred to as the Lipstick theory, which means that people want to buy something inexpensive to spice up a room, create a calming mood or buy a pillow that is just plain fun!
