Nature 
Emerging from quarantine brought a new admiration and wonderment for nature and human connection, and Art and Craft meets the needs of those seeking calm and adventure alike. Earthy neutrals and warm tones connect us with the reality around us. Whether it’s the chocolate brown hills or rocky mountain paths, we feel the most connected when we’re outside. This is our Mother Earth. 

A New Take on a Classic 
A new generation of designers are giving classics a modern spin with the cottagecore and light and dark academia aesthetics. We see a resurgence of traditional colors from these slower time periods, including browns consisting of umbers, ochres, walnuts, and clay browns. 

Also inspired by the ’70s bohemian flair and folkloric design, Art and Craft connects to trends of earthy hues through fashion, furniture, and design. Pulling from the whimsical country style, prairie gardens, and organic hues of the time, we continue to trend forward showcasing the best of this free-flowing decade. 

Health and Wellness 
Art and Craft is a grounding color that taps into nourishing, stabilizing, and calming atmospheres. As an alternative to black, brown is softer and warmer, generating feelings of wholesomeness. The color connects directly with nature and its peaceful elements.
