Every year, I'm excited to hit the aisles of the McCormick Center to suss out the hot color story at the Home & Housewares show. Last year, green ruled the roost
, in 2010, somewhat surprisingly, it was a very grape-y purple
and in 2009, a range of dark, deep autumnal shades
were the leading edge. This time around I focused in on just tabletop items and the direction is an interesting one...looks like we're going gray!
