A Foot's Perspective - Episode 13

This episode of A Foot's Perspective captures trend highlights from a show that Ann Hurley has just returned from, Maison & Objet, the premier home textiles and interior design show that takes place twice a year in Paris. It's a huge show occupying 7 halls. It captures trends from all over the world.

These are important trends as they influence carpet, flooring and interior design style options in our marketplace.

I caught up with Ann last week in our Kennesaw, GA office and asked her to talk about the trends she observed.

She says:

Grey is everywhere. But, this grey story is about tints of grey with the color being as easily violet cast as green cast.

Neutrals and browns are also tinted and cast with suggestions of other colors.

Against these neutrals you see bright accent colors.

Woods are white-washed, rustic, hand scraped, weathered and greyed.

You can hear Ann describe these trends in A Foot's Perspective - Episode 13.
