Mid-Century Modern Color Trends

The first time I heard the name Doty Horn was in this episode of Off Book.

Doty was the Director of Color and Design at Benjamin Moore for seven years but has since moved on to open her own color forecasting and color marketing company, ColorVoyant. Two years ago she had some interesting things to say about the resurgence of mid-century desgin and space age that hit right on the head of mid-century modern.

For 2013, ColorVoyant is predicting something they call "Modern Primitive" which is a bridging of old and new, of traditional craft and modern technology. It's a trend I really hope is true because I've been dealing with that for a while — trying to fit modern speakers into a well-crafted mid-century cabinet, finding traditional media center that my modern TV will fit on, etc.
