Hirshfield’s Colour Canvas 2012: Part 2

We’ve already traveled to Australia, Asia and Europe to visit the forecasted color trends inspired by these regions in the Hirshfield’s Colour Canvas 2012 collection. Now let’s get our passports stamped in South America, North America and Africa!

In South America, design is heavily influenced by Spanish trends, Aztec patterns and the iconic color scheme of deep red orange paired with neutral beige and a calming green.

In North America, technology plays an important role – innovative patterns and colors are the goal. The Arts and Crafts movement has also influenced this region, and nothing personifies North American culture like the iconic cowboy in blue jeans.

Africa draws its defining colors from the craftsmanship of Morocco, the colors and patterns of Batik fabrics and, of course, the fabulous animals native to the region.

This color collection, designed by Color Guild, represents global color trends.
