Los Angeles overflows with unique creations, bolstering and empowering trends that go around the world. Because Los Angeles is one of the largest cities in the world and a design lover’s dream, color trends are cultivated here unlike anywhere else.

Here, color transcends all fields. Designers, architects, stylists, and artists like you are in a never-ending hunt for the hottest statement-making shades to serve as a muse—to heighten the aesthetic.

We research and explain the social, economic, and cultural impact on color and design. We constantly look for trendsetters—and furnish opinions from other trend watchers.


A tribe of people band together in wonder, creating a tremendous fascination. It happens every day, in the way an artist chooses new hues, or in the way a fashion designer determines what shades should rule the runway and embolden an entire season. Our specialists know, just like you, that any trend begins in the heart of a creative circle.

We’re seeking out these up-and-coming nuanced colors, those one-of-a-kind colorways that inspire us all. We know that uncovering these hues not only makes us an authority in color, but it also raises us as color connoisseurs. And we’re here to assist you in achieving the greatest on-trend outcomes for every project, every time. Take a look at a few fellow design experts and projects that are clearing the path for new trends to develop and take shape—in the next neighborhood, on a nearby street, and in a studio around the corner.
