Trends Shift from Inside to Outside

white camelliaMany of us have been hypnotized by the all white trend in home decorating over the past few years, and according to Monrovia, the trend is heading from the house to the garden. “The clearest color trend is a more toned-down palette with a focus on calm and harmony, particularly shades of white from crisp to snowy, ivory to ‘dirty whites.’ With the here-to-stay emphasis on inside/outside lifestyle, colors in the garden continue to mirror those that are hot in the home sphere,” said Kate Karam of Monrovia.  “At least four major consumer paint companies selected shades of white as their top 2016 colors. Clean, fresh, optimistic—this color should be on everyone’s watch list.”
