Trend Spotting at ABC Home

I've posted about ABC Home many times before.  It's an amazing home goods store in New York City.  Every time I go there, I find myself inspired.  The vendors at ABC Home are definitely wired into what's hot right now in high end design.  So, I love to use a stroll through the store as research & education on what's trending. 

I look for:

  • Colors/Color Combinations
  • Patterns
  • Lettering Styles/Fonts
  • Display Ideas
  • Attitude/Style

What trends do you see when you look through these photos?

Obviously I didn't take photos of everything.  I took photos of the things that interested me.  So, the sample may be a little skewed.  But, this is what I see:

  • Colors/Color Combinations: Reds, pinks -- hot colors with denim blue accents.
  • Patterns: Organic & tribal.
  • Lettering Styles/Fonts: Very handwriting/hand lettering oriented.
  • Display Ideas: A lot of bringing natural elements into display -- twigs, leaves, flowers.  Also vintage and worn wooden items as display cases.
  • Attitude/Style: Whimsical, female power, clean, organic, outdoor garden.

Do you agree or disagree?

I think we all see the same things differently, so I'd love to know what trends you see!
