Pastel is the latest link in the 2018 tile trend report from Kristin Coleman and the team at Novita PR in the USA. As with the other Top Ten themes in Novita’s report, this particular trend was identified following close observation of the new collections from the top Italian tile manufacturers at Cersaie 2017.
Moving beyond the celebrity of millenial pink, shades of blush, lavender, sea green and pale yellow can be found in dozens of floor and wall tiles. Less saturated than primary colors, pastels create a light, soft and calming effect, which dovetails with a few other trends from this year from Painterly to Nostalgia.
Collections include Mek by Atlas Concorde, Palladiana by Ceramica Bardelli, Confetti by Ceramica Vogue, I Filati by Ceramiche Brennero, Colorline by Fap, Slash by Imola, Chalk by Marca Corona, FineArt by Sant’Agostino and Nurburgring by Tonino Lamborghini.
