Color Forecast 2008

Ethnic accent colors reveal global awareness and complement a natural color palette. Splashes of colors inspired by sun-warmed Caribbean beaches, bustling Shanghai street markets, and wild African safaris embellish décor this year. These punchy colors are as varied as the cultures which inspired them--deep reds, bright tangelos, striking turquoises, and even animal prints define this internationally inspired trend. Expect these striking tones as bright accents on small appliances, rich colors on silky upholstery and bold finishes on woodwork. See next color trend.
