While attending KBIS with BlogTourVegas I observed a color trend that really caught my attention. Neutral tones (especially in tiles and woods) are warming up and moving away from cool gray and shifting to more of a brown/gray or taupe. In fact, the presenter at our visit to Walker Zanger tiles told our group in no uncertain terms that “warm neutrals are trending for 2015”.

I won’t go as far as to say gray is out and brown is back as some trend forecasters are claiming but at KBIS, taupe and brown/gray was everywhere.

Not only in tiles and flooring but in cabinetry as well.

The designer (Blue Heron) of the New American Home which is about as “on trend” as it gets also chose kitchen cabinetry in this “not quite gray not quite brown color”.

Here is a close up of this taupey color. It’s almost like a gray wash over brown wood. Side Note*(Seeing the wood grain was also a trend).

So color friends, what do you think? Are you ready to let go of cool gray and embrace a warmer hue or do you think cool gray still has a few more years to reign supreme?
