Here Comes the Sun
COVID has brought new trends as many work from home and seek to create new work spaces. The needs of the household have changed and everything from colors and textures have changed too. The demand is up to redesign working spaces and other living areas. What surveys have discovered is everyone wants more light, natural light and windows. “People are seeking ways to create more serenity and tranquility in their living atmosphere for mental and physical well-being,” said Jared Davis, MCPF, GCF, and business manager for Frames Now Australia.
Lighter colors and finishes in framing are being chosen. Lighter tones and whitewashed woods were predicted for this year with people finding inspiration from Scandinavian and rustic style philosophies. Earthy tones have grown in popularity as the serenity of the outdoors is brought indoors. Color trends are soft, subtle and calming.
“Bringing elements of nature into your living space adds a tranquil feeling to your home,” said Tom Fuller, vice president of sales and marketing at Crescent. “A simple way to incorporate this trend into your abode is through framed art. Crescent offers a wide variety of colors as well as hundreds of natural fabrics and textures that, when incorporated into your framed piece, are sure to give off calming and peaceful vibes.”
