The 2018 Color and Design Trends Report features five color palettes with an emphasis on Celebrations – of memories, natural wonders, the stars and unknown, life's adventures and childhood joys. Sara McLean, color expert and stylist for Dunn-Edwards, chose the color trends after researching everything from world events, lifestyle, fashion and food to trends in travel, wellness and individuality.
According to McLean, the partnership with Pop Up Greens allows Dunn-Edwards to showcase its Trend Colors in "fun, playful ways."
"Typically, we have only revealed our Trend Colors in the annual Color + Design Trends Report and on DunnEdwards.com," McLean said. "By incorporating the colors on these beautiful hand-painted pots, we want to inspire people to add new colors into their living space. And, they make great gifts for the holidays."
"I've gone through a lot of trial and error to find paint that holds up to wear and tear, and general handling of the product," said Pop Up Greens Owner Molly Rhymer. "The pots are hand painted, so finding a paint that wouldn't chip or bubble was key for me. Finding ARISTOSHIELD in eggshell was like finding the holy grail.”
When choosing colors for the collection, Rhymer said she was immediately drawn to Natural Wonders.
"I wanted colors that feel organic and subtle, a color you would see in nature and that goes well with the green foliage of plants,” Rhymer added.
After pulling the Trend Color options, she worked with McLean on the final color selections for the collection.
The pots showcase five Trend Colors: DET544 The Green Hour, Dunn-Edwards' 2018 Color of the Year; DE5477 Fresh Honeydew; DE6094 Canyon Dusk; DE5257 Fall Foliage and DET550 Heritage Blue. Made from fiberglass, these hand-painted pots are lightweight and durable, and range in sizes from 7.5" to 15.5". All the pots are painted using ARISTOSHIELD in eggshell from the Dunn-Edwards Ultra-Premium line of paints. Prices start at $60 for the 7.5" to $160 for the 15.5" size.
The limited-edition collection is available for purchase on PopUpGreens.com through May 31, 2018.
