BLB Color & Trend Forecast #2 – Exotic Destinations emphasized the uniqueness of the region, rich, organic hues, and has a “style without borders” attitude. Identifying your ancestral roots and incorporating them into our home environment establishes a connection with your predecessors and instills a sense of reverence and pride in your respective culture. Exotic Destinations also celebrates exploration and shows an appreciation for the global environment.When incorporating Exotic Destinations in your design plan consider alternative neutrals in your color scheme such as smoke blue, expresso, and lemon curry. These colors have a richer appearance even will preserve a high end look even if you paid discount prices. Look for pieces made of exotic woods and fabrics that are highly textured. If animal skins (or hair) are not your forte, opt for a British Colonial style. Take for example the Astrid chair from Anthropologie. Though it is not a true British Colonial piece, it’s cocoa-hued dahlia pattern and mahogany turned legs evokes the world traveler spirit of Ernest Hemingway…it almost makes you crave a mojito.
