One of the big colors the industries are betting on is Marsala. Marsala is a beautiful terracotta red shade with an undertone of brown. It is soothing and warm as well as earthy.
While Marsala will be found in apparel lines, nail polish, make up and home furnishings, we are certain we will also see it the window covering industry. Look for manufacturers to offer it in some of the cellular shades and sheer window shade lines.
As we said, the opinions vary and some are mentioning blue or green, we certainly feel though the trend is going to be representing warm and earthy tones. These colors will be strong enough to stand out, but soft enough to create a warm atmosphere. While our lives have been getting busier, where every minute of the day is allocated to to-do-lists and calendars and out attention is frequently turned towards our smart phones, the 2015 design trend will further lead towards tranquility. Our go to product for calm and peacefulness is the Silhouette like shades we offer by Comfortex. Shangri-La Sheer Shades, are probably going to further gain in popularity this year.
We also see that the design trend is going back to nature. Products that reconnect us with our environment like woods, grasses and bamboo are ideal for this. Organic materials as they are found in woven wood shades are a great way to achieve this. And considering that 80% of people live in urban areas, having products that reconnect us with nature is more desired than ever.
2015 is sure to be exciting… we can’t wait as to what’s to come!
