ON TREND

2018 has many new trends: marble, wood and black kitchens; chocolate, brown, beige, taupe for men's clothes; shades of brown man-bags, braces and belts as men's accessories; tartan and checks for fabric.

The new Single Malt color has been designed for 2018 - darker than rose gold, yet not as bright as gold. And the Pantone color for 2018 is Ultra Violet.

Design trends are bright colors, brutalism, geometry and hand-drawing, moving on from coloring books to paint-by-numbers to create your own art in a larger form..
