Homebuildlife Forcast
Homebuildlife is a research and analysis organization that supplies information and data to the industry. I attended their seminar on Trend Forecasting for 2014, which was very interesting. They broke down the influence on the current trends into 3 distinct categories:
      1. Industrial Evolution
      2. Modern Myth
      3. Rendering Reality
Industrial Evolution: We are at the dawn of a new machine age where recycling, up-cycling and transforming waste into beautiful innovative products is our focus.
Modern Myth: The integration of multi-ethnic art, design & architecture. A strong handcrafted feel in machine made products.
Rendering Reality: Playful perspectives and technology manipulated images to create shape, depth and geometry.

Breath of Fresh Air – Color of the Year
Benjamin Moore Paints earlier this month released its highly anticipated ‘Color of the Year 2014’ as part of its Color Trends 2014 palette. The big winner is #806 Breath of Fresh Air, which is the first color shown below! It can be paired with other colors to create a warmer or cooler expression.
Benjamin Moore’s  creative director Ellen O’Neill said “We chose Breath of Fresh Air because we were seeing it across several different environments – it’s our new neutral. ”  She also added, “We know that color is the ultimate form of personal expression, so we curated this collection to help consumers create beautiful spaces with confidence.”  View All Photos

The common element throughout is good design. There’s always a reason why an element is chosen for a certain place, whether it’s a colorful painting in a room or a specific fabric on a chair. There’s also a functionality to every item that is unique to each project’s solution. It’s sort of like an oversized jigsaw puzzle with a place and reason for each piece.

“Your rooms are like a painting. Each component is a brushstroke to create the whole picture. It’s magic every time!”
