Fall 2016 Color Trend Report: Blue

No matter the shade, Pantone was spot-on when it predicted that blue would be the hottest color of fall. As we glance from the runways to Mohawk Home’s market showrooms, we have to admit, having the blues has never looked so beautiful!

Pantone’s ten-shade palette was inspired by “a desire for tranquility, strength, and optimism.” Riverside and Airy Blue are listed as the two favorites, but we are finding that when it comes to area rugs, the variations are vast and are all incredibly popular this season! It’s no wonder that “blue rugs” has been a trending search term in the online retail space throughout 2016.

Other colors in the Pantone report include Sharkskin gray, Aurora Red, Warm Taupe, Dusty Cedar, Lush Meadow, Spicy Mustard, Potter’s Clay and Bodacious.
