This IKEA Line From Lady Gaga and Beyonce's Stylist Bea Akerlund Is Super Quirky. Between a major update to the beloved FRAKTA bag coming in 2018 and a new line inspired by '70s textile patterns, there's been a lot to keep IKEA fans excited these last few months. But the Scandinavian powerhouse's latest collection may just be its most daring yet. The brand announced it's teaming up with stylist Bea Åkerlund for a new furniture line, debuting in March 2018, and you'll want to prepare yourself, IKEA lovers, because these pieces are a tad quirkier than your average BILLY bookcase.
Designers Are Obsessed With Pantone’s Bold and Regal Color of the Year. Pantone has done it again: their 2018 color of the year is bold, beautiful, and nothing like the other color predictions we've seen for next year. The company says their pick, Ultra Violet 18-3838, is a "dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade" and "communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future" — and the design industry agrees. "There’s a hint of fantasy in this color — something almost unreal and fabulist about it, after all, real ultra violet rays are beyond human comprehension – the naked eye can't see them!" says Editor in Chief of House Beautiful, Sophie Donelson. "I like the magic, optimism, and fearlessness it invokes. At home, I’d use it to envelope yourself, royals style – how about a least a mohair throw, it's not quiet a velvet cape, but it'll do!" We bet a plush velvet bench will do the trick, as seen in this dining area.
The First 2018 Color Predictions Are Here and They're Super Bold. In 2016, Simply White and Alabaster White were the hue of the moment. Then in 2017, we saw a shift to darker neutrals, like Poised Taupe and Mushroom. So it's only fitting that for 2018 people predict even deeper and bolder colors are going to be all the rage. One of the first paint companies to release their prediction is PPG Paints, who named Black Flame (PPG1043-7) their new "it" shade. They describe it as an "unprecedented, statement-making black with deep tones of indigo." So ... Black Flame is the new black? They also claim it reflects the rebirth of classic black and evokes feelings of privacy, hope and classic modernism. It kind of reminds us of Benjamin Moore's Shadow from last year, to be honest.
