Whaaaat? Did that make you do a double take? We sure did! Flesh tones? That doesn’t sound like a very appealing way to decorate AT. ALL.
According to Tom Mirabile, a color trend expert and contributing editor for Pantone, consumers are longing for more personal connection--rather than a digital connection--and will display that in their decorating. Mirabile insists that “flesh tones convey a sense of human warmth and will be popular in 2019.”
Still not convinced? Neither were we until we took a closer look at what Crayola has to offer 😃. If you bought a box of “multicultural” crayons, you’d get a collection of the following colors: apricot, black, burnt sienna, mahogany, peach, sepia, tan, grey and white! Now those are some flesh tones we can get behind! Add in a little blush and you’ve got a lovely, soothing color wheel from which to decorate!
Theme #1: The Cozy Connection
Let’s show your customers how they can make a cozy space in their home by starting with the Window Box Planter Set. Display the Aglaia Odorata Pot Set or the Mini Succulents in Glass within the planter!
Now THAT’s a cozy look your customers will wrap up in!
Theme #2: The Cottage Connection
This look is a little bit farmhouse, and a little bit rustic.
Start with our set of three Whitewashed Candleholders - with or without candles - and add in the Bench. Display our Wave Top Smooth Pillar Candle in Coral, next to our Pail Planters filled with Wild Flower Bush, Seed Grass Bush, or a Tulip Bouquet. Show the Trugs with Spindle Handles filled with the Mini Succulents!
If that’s not enough to tempt your customers, top it off with the 9x9 inch Darren Gygi Home Collection Peony displayed on the Stand. Add a little greenery or one of our beloved accent rings, and you’ve got a gorgeous tablescape!
Theme #3: The Contemporary Connection
This final look has some modern elements mixed in with a few provincial pieces.
These looks, together with your own ideas, are sure to convince your customers that they need to jump on the flesh-tone, connection trend!
