Innovation: The Key to Success through Color & Trends
Vital to the concept of innovation is originality—a surprise, an edge, a twist or even a slight alteration to a familiar design. Most importantly, the trend to reinvented and imaginative color combinations within a palette can make the difference in attracting consumer awareness and acceptance. Leatrice (Lee) Eiseman, IHA’s own color guru, walks you through the leading trends and the rationales for how, when and why they will work in the marketplace.
American consumers have never been more diverse, demanding or complex, sharing affluence and influence across four generations with distinctly different desires and expectations. The next decade promises dramatic changes in both the shape and composition of the American home environment, creating an enduring surge in demand for new solutions and innovations.
