What can we expect to see in 2011?

Brendenfoerder shares his take on color the color trends for 2011: “The color design story for 2011 is an inspiring tale of global fire and passion. The world is in a period of accelerated change — a fire building across our globe as we move in a new direction with renewed energy. Fire-inspired reds, oranges, and ambers are the fireworks of 2011. These hot divas will burst forth with the power, energy, and passion necessary to bring fresh excitement.”

“Lighter golden browns represent the natural comforting luxuries enjoyed by the fire. Think of cashmere, almonds, fine scotch, and aged tobacco.”

“The long-term global blue cycle will continue to develop. Bright, clean blues still symbolize hope for a unified planet. But in 2011, the blues will be more aquatic; their watery presence will balance the fire colors.Greens will be layered and reminiscent of the forest floor after firewood is collected. In this spectrum of soft hues we find natural, new beginnings.”

Charcoal, smoke, and ash will inspire soft whispers of color. Graphite black will celebrate the new Nobel Prize-winning compound graphene, a super-strong but light carbon that is expected to change the future of humankind.

Finally, purples will move away from recent mauve hues and come alive with the influence of fire. They are like the colors seen deep under smoldering coals — a bright glimpse at the joy of the future. Fire will also pull navy into a deep, royal blue purple.
