The Dallas Market is filled with amazing products… and buyers converge on the Dallas Market to find the latest Trends and Colors, no matter what their business. Market Days are filled to overflowing with creativity, innovation and new products.

One of my duties as a Design Expert for the Dallas Market it to give a Trend and Color Discovery tour (Thursday January 16, at 11 am)… to point out and give a quick overview to buyers looking for the Latest and Greatest for their business.

Here’s a quick list of Breaking Trends and Hot Colors you can keep top of mind when “discovering” on your own in Dallas!

Voyager Trend: Voyager appeals to the traveler in all of us… Hues of sky and sea!
Blues dominate the Voyager Trend and focuses on the growing significance of water! The Multi-layered blue hues transition to purple, pink and deeper reds!

Pantone’s Color the Year “Radiant Orchid” reveals itself well in the Voyager Trend.

Burlap, Lace and Chevron: These textures and patterns glamorously support Nude colors… and we are seeing them used in combination and contrast.

Karat Trend: The Precious Metal Gold has been on an upwards trajectory for a few years, emerging with increased momentum. An expansive color palette of Yellow, Gold, Honey, and Terra Cotta support the Need for Yellow’s Positivity in our daily lives.
Nude Colors: This palette of colors logically originated in high-end women’s lingerie and methodically crept into handbags, home interiors and everywhere else. Think of the skin tones of everyone on the entire planet… and you’ll start seeing NUDE!

Antique Gold, Gold Metal, and Platinum provide the Elegance that captivates our desire to “bring home the Gold”… Copper and Bronze!

Meadow Concept: An off-shoot of the Eco-Green Trend… Meadow concentrates more fully on the inherent beauty of nature. Focusing on Mother Nature, sustainability and eco-friendly practices… caring for ourselves, our environment and planet are more at play than ever!

Green Color palette continues to expand… and we highlight it with Saturated Colors of Purple (Radiant Orchid)… Fuchsia and Coral!
