Trends – Past & Future

As 2010 draws to a close, we can’t help but reflect on the past year and all the things that will define it for future generations. Here is a look back at some of the trends 2010 will be remembered for!


2010 was the year of turquoise! Pantone picked this bold color as their “Color of the Year”, and we embraced it.

2010 was not the year to be conservative. Bold wallpaper patterns were showing up everywhere.
