The home of Mix Publications, bringing you all the latest colour and design trend information!
Evergreens, the glowing embers of a fire and the overcast colour of the sky all bring to mind mountain retreats with their houses nestled among the trees. That bit of escapism plays into the Mix Trends Alpine story for Winter 2014, with colours that evoke the timeless mood of the forest. Beyond the colours are the design elements and one, the owl, is making a grand comeback after a short appearance in fashion over the last year. Now owls are heading indoors and are seen on everything from home décor to children’s bedding. Urban Outfitters is offering an owl side table, while bath accessories from Macy’s Give A Hoot collection add a bit of whimsy to its message about conservation and environmental awareness. An owl candleholder can illuminate from Target and from GreenPartyGoods.com come measuring bowls and spoons not only in owl designs, but almost literally presenting the Alpine color palette. And when you’ve filled your home with all things owl, you can return to fashion, with Kate Spade’s Night Owl shoes.
