October in Color: Connect with This Powerful Color

By Shannon Kaye, Color Marketing Manager

You might say today's earthy home trends are a resurgence of that early 90's Southwestern craze when everyone had 'Papasan' chairs and Talavera inspired patterns in terracotta, turquoise, and black emblazoned on everything from cookie jars to curtains (I was there- I had the cookie jar!).

But, a deeper dive makes me think that more than a nostalgic renaissance, we're seeking respite from the world's turbulence by returning to natural colors and organic patterns to restore a sense of comfort and connection. We're appreciating the earth more too, and all it has to give us. Dare I say, we're feeling more precious about everything; our time, our lives, our planet...

Copper is the color of connectivity so it makes sense that every version of this magical metallic is finding a spot in today's interiors. It's one of the oldest metals used by humans and commonly associated with creativity, grounding, love, and healing.
