2008 Color Trends

According to the Color Marketing Group, environmental concerns will be the strongest influence on color choices for products from paint to cars next year. CMG's top predictions for popular colors and color themes in 2008 include:

Looking "green," regardless of the color.

For fabrics, that means handmade, with no dyes or bleaches. Think natural style, with textures and imperfections considered part of the beauty. In countertops, flooring and tiles, expect to see colors such as off-white, sand, linen, moss and other hues inspired by the Earth.

Beautiful blues reminiscent of the sky and of water.

Also watch out for a deep, dark navy that's almost black.

Warm metallics.

As we've already predicted, look for growth in copper and bronze finishes for fixtures, tiles and trim.

Ethnic accents.

Globalism grows in the home, with reds, oranges, pinks, yellows and turquoise from Morocco, India, China and Latin America used to add punch.
