Dripping in Gold

We are already into October. Can you believe it?
Have the leaves started to change where you are?
Here in the good old 'Burg, the trees are mostly green, but they are beginning to acquire pops of yellow and gold, which is especially fitting for today's post.
I know retail (in all its forms) has a tendency to be way ahead of the curve, thinking months ahead of everyone else. But it's part of our job to stay in front of trends, so that when you all are ready, you know just what to look for.
Shaw Floors has already declared a Color of the Year for 2018, which is exciting! We are moving away from the gray tones and cooler palettes of Yesteryear and, though the weather grows colder each day, this color is here to make us feel warm and sunshiney year-round!
Here's what Debbie Houston, creative director at Shaw Floors, had to say about "Gold Rush", "There's a yearning for warmer hues and we see that coming to life as touches of gold and brass accents return in popularity. Gold Rush brings energy to a room, creating a range of emotions from warmth to excitement, from serious to playful."
Not sure how to incorporate such a bold color? No worries!
Houston says that Gold Rush pairs beautifully with navy as a pop, lush green for elegance, as well as more neutral tones, including cool grays.
And the good news is, all 5 of the colors Shaw has chosen for Color of the Year in the pat 5 years build on one another, and are meant to layer nicely in a home, so there's no need to throw out or change your whole home each year.
