VIDEO: Consumers Warm up to Nurturing Colors
August 7, 2017,
LAS VEGAS—In a special video segment from the PBM Newsdesk at Las Vegas Market, color and trend specialist Patti Carpenter talked with HFN’s Andrea Lillo about what’s hot in color now, how color affects people emotionally and its importance in the home.
Among the directions Carpenter sees occurring is the “warming trend,” as people are looking for richer colors—such as saffron yellow, taupes and brick reds—that have a nurturing element to them.
The PBM Newsdesk at Las Vegas Market was operated by HFN’s parent company, Progressive Business Media, and was sponsored by Profit Systems.
