Eco-Awareness is the buzz word in the design world. The environment is on everyones mind when choosing materials and products. It's only natural that nature continues to be the inspiration behind the color palette for 2009.

Water, sky and sea inspired blues continue to be relevant

Sun inspired citrus yellow adds a punch of upbeat color

Neutrals are always in style, but the most directional color for 2009 is gray. It is said that in times of uncertainty, there is a renewed respect for permanence. Think of the grey tones in an ancient structure or an old sculpture. Cool, neutral grays and gray beiges (greige), as well as complex neutrals. Gray is replacing black and brown as we continue forward in 2009.

This grey on white oak leaf wallpaper pattern from Cole & Son is part of the Vintage Glamour Collection.
