Ever wonder where colour trends come from? Who decides what colour is trending and what isn’t? You might be surprised to learn it isn’t colour forecasters like me.
I recently mentioned that I had recorded a video on TikTok that reported that ‘Grey is Out’.
If you haven’t seen it yet, watch it here.
This news is not NEW at all to my readers, I know.
But to my shock and surprise, it’s still new to the general public. Know someone who is still decorating with grey?
People were really upset with my declaration that grey is already out.
The video went totally viral and currently has 1.7 million views to date, with over 8400 comments. 😳
And here were the top 3 comments that were constantly posted over and over.
- Who are YOU to tell us grey is OUT??
- I LOVE grey, I’ll always love grey, and you can pry my grey planks from my cold dead hands.
- All you colour forecasters, design professionals and manufacturers LOVE to tell us what’s out so we can throw it all out and buy what’s NEXT
Who Decides Colour Trends?
I decided a video would explain it best. For 14 minutes, you will feel like you’re in one of my live workshops.
Who decides what’s in or what’s out anyway?
Hint: It’s NOT the colour forecasting people. In fact, you might be surprised to hear how it works.
