Wanderluxe: The Next Emerging Palette?

For many of us, maximalism incorporates not only rich layers of vibrant colors, patterns, and textures, but also, of course, TRIM!

So no discussion about the resurgence of the trend would be complete without our favorite maximalist, design blogger and educator Jana Platina Phipps, a.k.a. the Trim Queen.

Her comprehensive fall HPMKT report is a must-read clinic on modern maximalism and how clever product designers are re-interpreting traditional embellishments in exciting and witty new ways. We guarantee even the grumpiest minimalist will be inspired!

And Jana believes this new interest in embellishment extends to color as well.

"Expanding on the Maximalism trend and the rise of Gucci, the next emerging palette in decor will be a lively mix of elegant jewel tones and ethnic brights with a touch of metallic. It's exotic but regal. I call this travel-inspired mashup WANDERLUXE. After all, isn't VIP globetrotting the new luxury?"

It makes sense to us!
