This trend is driven by an increasing awareness of the effects of nature and how the weather shapes our world over time. Surfaces are softened by sprays of salt air and reveal visible signs or rust, sun bleaching and water damage. This trend emanates a wonderful calm, that fuses both natural and minimal aspects allowing products to exude a pared-back yet organic quality.
Hazy, sun-bleached colours form the basis of this palette reflecting the worn and weathered nature of this trend. Aqua provides a vivid shot of colour without upsetting the harmonious balance of this beautiful palette.
Product shapes are curved and rounded but not perfect influencing both products and print design. Painterly brush marks also influence print direction and are key for wall art, packaging and textiles. See more from this trend over on our Pinterest page.
As the Rio Olympics spark a global flurry of energy and celebration, sporting activities and vibrant festivals unite the world. Spirited celebrations, street food and Brazilian art underpin this vibrant, optimistic trend.
This lively palette really captures the spirit of Brazil and provides some great opportunities for colour clashes in bold patterned prints.
Use multiple prints in one design by combining colour and pattern blocking for textiles. Accessories and ceramics are finished off with hand painted decoration to create painterly effects. See more from this trend over on our Pinterest page.
