Splish splash! We’re raving over this poppy-bright 2015 design trend. It’s watercolor – in bright colors. We’ve spotted it EVERYWHERE. It’s on clothing, home decor, accessories, and DIY projects. Angela, our Director of Product Design, said, “We are even taking this 2015 design trend and incorporating it into our cards. Currently, our product team is working on Christmas cards (yes, Christmas cards!) and it is our job to keep our designs up to date so when it comes time for you to share your greetings, you will be a trendsetter.”
Why do we love this design trend? It’s perfect for the summer. This time of year, it’s all about beaches, pools and lakes—refreshing drinks, cool breezes, and summer vacations making memories out on the water. Taking those splashes and combining them with bright colors makes this trend a summer-time favorite.
You might even see these bright splashes captured in completely unique ways—like a DIY tissue paper watercolor mug! This idea turns boring white mugs into vibrant creative works of art. If your coffee doesn’t wake you up, the summery brightness of your mug will.
Watercolor splashes can create beautiful designs. This Lotus Blossom Infinity Scarf from Anthropologie wraps a painting around your neck with its beautiful design. We love blue and green splashes that make this scarf perfect for one of those breezy summer days.
Blending more splashes together is this beautiful Art Pop Mini Zipper Clutch. These summer colors are the perfect blend paired with that bright summer dress!
Making another bright impression is this stunning bedroom design. A bright painted wall, geometric rug, neutral colored bedding, and a poppy watercolor throw pillow all compliment each other to create this splashy room from Kip&Co.
Take a peek at all our card designs featuring these splashes of watercolor and enjoy filling your homes and wardrobe with this bright splashy trend. Splish splash in color all summer long!
