Color Trends for 2014: European Style

Last Updated On
imm Cologne – the International Furnishing Show

The design world never tires of trends and especially not of the new color trends for 2014. We also know from long experience that certain ideas will find their way across the pond to the USA. One of the early events that indicate color trends is imm cologne, a furnishings show with a long history which is held in Cologne, Germany. Reporting from that event for decor8 was Gudy Herder a Barcelona-based interior stylist with a significant following. So let’s take a peek at this, according to Gudy:

  • Red was presented as a powerful and emphatic color for space brightening.
  • Purple had a softer and almost feminine tone.
  • Pink continued to be expressed as a pale color. However, still the dominant pastel.

  • Yellow was seen in collections of more Northern than Southern European ideas.
  • Green and the trend toward indoor gardening were omnipresent.
  • Blue also took on a pastel theme and was used to lighten it.
