Color is a visual language, one that has the unique power to create a mood that influences us psychologically and physiologically. With color choices so closely tied to personal expression, developing the ability to better assess and gauge client aspirations and lifestyle needs, it is imperative for designers, manufacturers and retailers. Join Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute, as she highlights key color trends for 2021 and provides insight into Pantone’s 2021 Color of the Year and how it relates to home furnishings, décor, gift, apparel, lifestyle and all aspects of our living. LIVE ZOOM EVENT ONLY.
What makes a home "happy" and how can you make sure that your designs and products help your clients get the happy home they crave? In this webinar we will explore how to create a happy home based on design psychology fundamentals and look at how we can align our designs, products, and marketing with creating a happy home. Participants will discover eight categories of well-being that they can use to make sure their design solutions and marketing efforts meet the emotional and psychographic needs of their clients, and look at specific products and collection ideas that align with those categories. The goal of the session is to spark new design and marketing ideas for designers, retailers, and manufacturers, setting us all up for success and helping our clients truly feel happy at home, no matter what curveballs, epidemics, or life challenges they face. Presented by Rebecca West, founder of Rebecca West Interiors and Seriously. Happy. Homes., podcaster for Creating Your Happy Place and author of Happy Starts at Home. We will also be giving away a copy of Rebecca’s book during the presentation. A question-and-answer segment will follow.
