This early trend seems poised to establish the new “it” color across many product categories. Orange and Lime Green have long faded, Silver is toast; this sky-blue echoes the modern need for a color that’s restful and inviting, but also fresh and current. Currently it is emerging heavily in the Furniture, Housewares, Fashion Accessories, and Interiors categories. Not meant for just an accent, this trend is most powerful when the color is fully enveloping the product, as if the entire object was dipped in a vat of paint. Just don’t dip the parakeets.
