There’s always a trend or two that becomes quickly evident during ICFF and NYCxDesign and this year there were a few trends that seemed leftover from last year: marble, stone, brass and copper. But this year, we noticed another trend: color. Green, specifically, followed by yellows and jewel tones. We wonder if maybe this has anything to do with the PANTONE color of the year being Emerald

Here are a few great green and yellow designs we spotted:

Although this is just a small selection of pieces that we saw in this color family, the NYCxDesign color story here is pretty evident when you put all these photos together and create a palette:

Convinced you need to bust out a lemon and lime centerpiece, maybe pick some daffodils or even refresh with some new yellow or green paint? Yeah, me too. We also used Sherwin-Williams’ ColorSnap app to help make it easier to quickly view the colors in all of our photos and capture trends on the spot. Here are our ColorSnaps:

Spot on trend. IKEA’s Stockholm collection hit the nail right on the head in terms of color story trend. This photo and collection pretty much sums up the entire show. Bravo, IKEA.
