On Trend 2023: Blues and Grays

What’s right now? Because the world changes so quickly, that question burns in our minds regularly. As humans, we live through our senses, and part of the answer involves art and design that soothes us, supports us, and delights us. We need that nourishment to face the challenges of our time, at home and in society at large. TABLE Magazine looks at fall and winter trends in art, craft, and design that are just right for our lives in 2023. Up first, the color blue.

Twilight and Midnight

While blue never goes out of style, we recently took a pandemic rest from aughties gray, finding it too somber and chilly. However, misty tones you might see in Western PA twilights and midnights are like a soothing antidote to increasing levels of busyness on both personal and professional fronts. Their gentle glow is something to treasure.
