Exciting Color/Design Trends for 2014.

Posted by: Jessamy on March 27, 2013 • 0 Comments

Back from a brief vacation full of sunshine, swaying palms, and the wrangling of a wild 1.5 year old rookie traveler, business is full speed. Thank you clients near and far, for trusting me with your utmost color/design dilemmas.

I like to stay inspired through the busy season by way of Houzz, Pinterest, design magazines, and the wonderful trend webinars composed by Pantone. I just viewed the trend forecast for Spring/Summer 2014 and it was brimming with color & vitality. I scribbled down meetings notes, and sometimes I like to share the raw, unabridged info with you. So here goes…

• Shopper enthusiasm returns with a longing for affordable luxury.

• Retailers focus on online shopping enticements & mobile commerce.

• Loud floral patterns are key. Asian & 60’s influences will be seen.

• Landscape, atmospheric prints are also big for Spring.


• Black & white pattern is BACK. Especially stripes.

• Footwear is LOUD. Spiral heels, funky shapes, bright colors. The standards have definitely changed.

• Mantihose, lol. Yes, they claim this is huge in Europe. Also, tattoo simulating hosiery.

• Strong color continues in 2014, more grown up this time.

• Neutrals are warmer, shades of tan & nature’s white. See, I told you :)

• Bright eye shadow floods the runways. Blue & green.

• Green- we see a full range with cooler shades making a come back.

There you have it readers, a little Alice in Wonderland isn’t it? Run wild and free!
