Our annual trends issue is pure fun. I love seeing – and showing you – what’s new in the world of design. This year, the new paint colours indicate we want a tranquil home. No surprise! The lovely soft greens (see “Colours of the Year,” page 40) show that we realize how crucial nature is to our well-being. But bringing green into your home doesn’t have to mean painting every wall.
