TRUE COLORS 2017-2018

Course Description:  
This course will examine the three major color stories in North America identified as the super influencers for the 2017-2018 color palette. They are:  Re-Tribing, Age-Ability  and  Conscious . Each of these color stories is a mega story in its own right. They will be discussed in-depth and shown how they relate to 1/3 of the emerging color palette. The emerging colors were conceived from these color stories which capture relevant movement in socio-economic conditions, cultural and societal evolvement, and generational interactions. This course provides color insights, establishing a good balance between warm, optimistic colors and calming, cool-toned colors. Understanding these new colors will provide the tools for design professionals to craft more sophisticated spaces, both residential and commercial. Designers will be able to implement these colors into their designs to provide fresh, relevant, timeless interiors.
