Fabulous Floors' Fabulous Find: Color

Page 75 of Summer 2008 issue
If you remember from Fabulous Floors & Fabulous Carpet Styles!, I promised you one other gem from the Summer 2008 issue of Fabulous Floors Magazine.... It's a really Fabulous Find and it has to do with color!

Well, here it is!

It's a taste of things to come in the form of a Fabulous Find. In the Fall 2008 issue of Fabulous Floors Magazine, you can count on the most inspirational and marvelous article about color... relating to the Audubon Field Guide to Color 2008. An article that the editors wrote because they were so taken with the Wear-Dated 2008 color forecast. They felt it was particularly relevant to consumers as they get started on a home redesign project, especially one that involves carpet and flooring choices. Which thrills us to pieces.

From the Fabulous Find article on page 75 of the Summer 2008 issue:

"Each year carpet and rug fiber maker Solutia [i.e., our parent company] produces its guide to coming color trends. This year, the company colorist [that's Ann Hurley] used digital versions of stunning Audubon nature prints to showcase Solutia's take on rich, complex and distinctive colors. Solutia took things a step further, creating coordinated tear-off color chips to help consumers and designers select a color first, then unique color combinations for coordinating floors, paint, wall-paper, fabrics and accessories...."

In the meantime, enjoy the Summer 2008 issue of Fabulous Floors Magazine which is available on newsstands at major booksellers - like Barnes & Noble, Hastings, Books A Million - now.

I'll let you know when the Fall issue comes out.

Happy Labor Day weekend, too!
