Time for a color blast

I have just returned from a crazy and inspirational couple of days at Las Vegas Market (as part of the blogging team) and wanted to share with you my findings. Unfortunately I didn’t get time to walk the entire 5 million square ft of showrooms, but of what I did see, what stood out immediately […]

Trends & inspiration @Maison&Objet 2012

In particular, a zingy bright reddish-orange is dominating both the fashion and home accessories market this year following ‘Tangerine Tango’ Orange being named Pantone’s color of 2012.
