Finding Color Inspirations Abroad

In our experience we’ve found that color is one of the most important factors in the consumer buying decision. New, trending colors can completely change the look and feel of nearly any home decor piece.

Picture an armchair upholstered with a solid black fabric in a living room. It most likely blends in well with the rest of the space. Now picture the same chair upholstered in a fabric with intricate patterns and bright colors. Does it completely change the setting in your mind’s eye?

Our team members at River of Goods use a practical approach to apply colors to our products. We love to use a pop of trending colors to some of our accent pieces. At the same time, we make sure we have timeless colors to provide “safe” choices and ensure the sell through of inventory for our customers/buyers.

So where do our color inspirations can come from? They truly can come from anywhere if you stay alert and appreciate what’s around you. Through our travels, product ideas have come from ice cream shops, beautiful scarves, or even the ways that others merchandise their products. When you keep your eyes open, it’s easy to see the beauty in all parts of life.

When looking for new products to sell, do you tend to look for new color trends or stick to a more traditional color palette? Or is it a mix of both?
