Colors for the Adventurous Ones

 A week or two ago, I attended a webinar about the upcoming paint colors for 2011. There were four color schemes that they discussed that I would like to show you.

Today, I begin with the Adventurous Travelers.

The American Melting Pot

America used to be considered the "melting pot" of cultures and ethnicity.

Today, that is no longer the case. People are proud of their heritage and want to show off who they are as a person. They want to be unique and their family's history helps make them stand out in a crowd.

 A few years ago Moroccan designs became very strong in the design world, but now there is also a presence of South African tribal designs.
Moroccan designs with bright,bold colors and strong prints.
Moroccan lanterns were very popular.

Houndstooth and Paisleys have been around for a few seasons, but are being used everywhere these days!

Houndstooth was original to Scottland while Paisleys originated from India.

Paisley Stained Glass Windows, just stunning!

Bright, saturated colors of strong, bold patterns. Not afraid to layer patterns!

Animal skins are another popular pattern for this style of design.

Reptile prints are also a growing trend.
