Modernism Week-It’s a thing in sunny Palm Springs California and we were so happy to be a part of this iconic Mid-Century celebration!
Architects in the likes of Albert Frey, Michael Black, E. Stewart Williams, Walter White, Craig Ellwood, Richard Neutra and James McNaughton are just a few of the mid-century greats that helped turn Palm Springs into the Mid-Century destination it is today!
So much fun visiting Maison a l’Orange, Moroccan House, Hidden Frey and West Elm Pool House to see varying styles of architecture as well as interior design. Safe to say that orange, hot pink and turquoise are the “go to” colors of Palm Springs.
Last week we attended NY Now at the Javitz Center right here in our own NYC neighborhood to see all things print, pattern, and color. And we’ve rounded up a few of our favorites from the trends we spotted – check them out below.
It is almost less than 100 days until SUMMER & we can’t wait!
We are already working on summer prints in the studio and have seen the tropical influence stretch from Germany to Paris to NYC. Here are some of our favorite tropical inspired products and prints from our travels.
Also, make sure you SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM of this blog post to see some of the fun prints our in-house artists are working on!

Check out these year-around colors we saw all over the Heimtextil show in Germany this month. They all have a subtle feel to them and work really well together, or when accenting a neutral. Say “hi” to Merlot, Deep Teal, Cobalt, & Pistachio.
Merlot is still thriving and now can be seen popping up on more textured materials like that great shag throw or a woven tablecloth.
Deep teal is a great blue-green shade that has a calming effect. It looks even more amazing when accented with bright colors (we especially like it with the lime green).
Cobalt is a playful and fun color that reminds us of the summertime. Lets all jump in the pool and relax on the beaches of the Amalfi Coast… Is it summertime yet?
Coming off of the greenery trend, Pistachio brings the outside in with this bright but calming shade. We love this color for a bathroom or entryway!
Do you like these colors from Heimtextil? We are forecasting these colors showing up on a lot of products this year. We will keep you updated!
Its our last day at the show here in Frankfurt and a final chance to share a few of our favorite highlights from the day. Don’t worry though, the fun (and inspiration) aren’t over just yet – stay tuned for a more curated look at the trends we’ve explored during our time here.
Day Two of Heimtextil brought tons of print and pattern our way. One of our favorite themes is chock full of lush botanicals, exotic fauna, and tropical leaf everything. Take a peek at a handful of the highlights below.
